    I recently had the chance to speak to four-star cornerback Amir Riep from Colerain HS out of Cincinnati, Ohio about his recruitment and where things currently stand.

    Q: How does it feel to have exploded onto the scene lately with all of these big time offers?

    Amir: It feels good to finally get the respect (offers) for the hard work I have been putting in. Finally feels like it’s paying off.

    Q: What are you looking for in a school? Does closeness to home matter, or is it all about comfort and relationships?

    Amir: Probably more comfort and relationships. Distance is no problem. Strength and conditioning coach plays a part and position coach will also. They still need to coach me up so I can become the best athlete possible.

    Q: Do you have a top 5 schools currently? Do you have a decision date in mind?

    Amir: No top 5 right now, just looking into all the interest at this time. Decision will be made before the football season I think. That will give enough schools to show interest and give me time to look into them.

    Q: Are you looking to enroll early when you pick a school or just normal enrollment in the summer?

    Amir: I Will be enrolling early wherever I decide to attend and want to get it over with for me and the team so we can concentrate on state.

    Q: Did you have a dream school growing up? Does living in Ohio bring any added pressure to attend Ohio State or Cincinnati?

    Amir: I’m from Ohio so Ohio State has always been a school I cheered for along with Cincinnati. Some pressure because they try to criticize Ohio State for not offering athletes in state, but sometimes when they do they leave, so pressure on that end.

    Q: What coach is your main recruiter?

    Amir: Coach Kerry Coombs

    Q: Once you make a commitment will you still be visiting other schools or will your recruitment be shut down?

    Amir: Once I commit, the recruitment is over and it will be all about that university and the program. That is why I am taking my time now.

    Q: Is there a pro or college athlete that you try and shape your game around?

    Amir: Patrick Peterson

    Q: What do you enjoy doing outside of football?

    Amir: Spending time with family and friends.

    I want to thank Amir Riep for the interview and wish him the best in his recruitment going forward. Give him a follow @Riep_Amir on Twitter.
