YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The All American Conference wants to return to three tiers and wants to add new schools.
Commissioner Rick King tells 21 Sports, Boardman, Warren Harding, East, Brookfield, Ashtabula Edgewood and Conneaut have all applied for membership.
King said, "We're looking at two or three other schools in the Mahoning, Columbiana, Trumbull county areas as well."
He wouldn't disclose those schools because their currently in other conferences.
King says the expansion committee will visit some of the schools showing interest and look at facilities, lower level programs and travel time.
King is hoping a recommendation can be made to superintendents on expansion at their May meeting. A two thirds approval vote is needed for a new member.
