Highly recruited Leto senior Jeremy Deering has already received visits from new Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher and Illinois coach Ron Zook, and this week is slated to include visits from two other head coaches who are courting him.
South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier and Rutgers coach Greg Schiano are scheduled to visit Deering Thursday, Leto offensive coordinator Frank Rose said. Both schools are among the 40-some programs that have offered Deering and he will make an official visit to both schools this month.
On Tuesday, Zook and new Illinois offensive coordinator Paul Petrino visited Deering at Leto.
Deering is scheduled to make an official visit to Florida State this weekend, followed by a trip to South Carolina the next weekend and then his final official visit to Rutgers in three weekends. He has already made official visits to Purdue and Illinois.
Rose said Florida, which just recently sent Deering an offer letter, is trying to get Deering to make an official visit to Gainesville instead of going to Rutgers in three weeks, but Deering is committed to making the trip to New Jersey. UF assistant Dan McCarney is recruiting Deering for the Gators.
