6-4, 250-pound South View (Hope Mills, NC) tight end prospect Jonathan Hannah, who is rated as one of the top tight ends in the nation, will make at least 2 official visits next month. He hopes to set a 3rd visit, but has not decided where he will go.
“I have South Carolina scheduled for January 14th and North Carolina scheduled for the 22nd,” said Hannah, who has already made official visits to Clemson and Virginia Tech. “I do plan to take all 5 visits. I don’t know where the 5th one will be yet. I’m considering Penn State, FSU and Georgia.”
One of the nation’s top recruits recently gave Hannah a phone call in favor of Penn State.
“Derrick Williams called me [earlier this week],” Hannah said. “It was the first time I’ve ever talked to him. He was just telling me the reasons why he chose Penn State and asked me to go check it out.”
Virginia Tech, which received an official visit from Hannah in October earlier this year, continues to recruit the talented prospect very heavily. Hannah appears to be returning the interest.

I enjoy talking to Coach Wiles, Coach Beamer and Coach Pearman at any time. I just felt really comfortable on my official visit there. I really liked the players and the academics.”

“I don’t have any leaders,” Hannah said. “But that’s nothing for anyone to worry about.”
Another strong contender is this race could be UNC, which has landed a good friend of Hannah’s in quarterback Cameron Sexton.
“His decision has somewhat of an impact, but it’s not going to be a very big one,” Hannah said of Sexton’s commitment to UNC. “He knew that UNC was the best place for him, but he also understands that it might not necessarily be the right place for me. I need to make the decision that’s best for me. We’ll see where that is.”
Will Hannah’s final decision come around Signing Day?
“I hope not,” Hannah said. “I hope to have something before then. Who knows though.”
Very athletic, Hannah is currently playing basketball for South View. He is seriously considering playing both football and basketball on the next level. At the power forward...
