Where Will Wisconsin’s Top Uncommitted Football Player Jester Weah End Up?

Madison Memorial’s three star wide receiver Jester Weah has been in contact with numerous schools. There are a few schools however that are looking to make a strong push before signing day.

The Pitt Panthers have been in contact and have been recruiting Weah for months now. Weah took an unofficial visit to the school on November 24th and watched as the Panthers defeated the Rutgers Scarlet Knights 27-6. The 6’3″ star wide out has always caught the eye of the Panthers and now Weah will be taking an official visit to Pittsburgh on January 18th.

But that’s not the only program making a late push for Weah.

The Colorado State Rams have also made it well-known that they are very interested in landing Weah. In fact the Rams were the first school that Weah took an official visit to and they made a very good first impression. Head coach Jim McElwain even made a strong statement to Weah, saying “You can be our version of Julio Jones.” That’s a bold statement and a major reason why the Rams are near the top for Weah.

Don’t forget about the Wisconsin Badgers either. The home state Badgers have always had their eye on Weah, and with being in the same city as each other, it’s easy to get a good look at the receiver. Although they have not offered Weah yet does not mean they are not very interested. The Badgers could easily make a late push for Weah and even if they don’t offer him a scholarship, new head coach Gary Andersen and his staff could make a case for the talented wide receiver to walk-on. They know very well what to do with walk-on down in Madison.

The Badgers are an attractive pick for obvious reasons, although I think after the visit he takes to Pittsburgh the Panthers will not only offer Weah but I think he will end up going with coach Paul Chryst and company.
