Bates schedules two official visits

Louisiana defensive end Jalen Bates has a top five and he has scheduled two official visits...

Jalen Bates does not have a leader or any type of order when talking favorites, but he does have a top five, and he has now scheduled his first two official visits.

"My top five are Texas Tech, Arizona State, Mississippi State, Louisiana Lafayette, and Michigan in no order," said Bates.

"I am going to Texas Tech for an official visit on September 13 and I am going to take my official visit to Arizona State on August 30."

The 6-foot-5, 235 pound rush end out of Kaplan, La. may or may not take the five allotted official visits.

"I will take as many as I need. There is no telling -- it may reach up to five."

Bates is the No. 16 prospect in Louisiana on Scout. Recommended Stories
