Jordan Diamond, an offensive tackle prospect from Simeon High School rated as the sixth best prospect in the state of Illinois by Rivals.com, has already made official visits with the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Auburn Tigers, but is now preparing for two January visits with the Wisconsin Badgers and the Arkansas Razorbacks. The visit with Arkansas is scheduled for January 20th, while the trip to Madison, WI is slated for exactly one week later.
Diamond has been very guarded about revealing his preference up to this point, stressing the importance of making all of his official visits before arriving at a decision, so every next visit may be his most important one. National Signing Day is set for Feb. 1, 2012, so there is a very real possibility Diamond could finish up his visit with Wisconsin less than one week before signing day without knowing where he will ultimately wind up. It should be fun to track how the visits develop over the next month.
