2014 WR Jacob McCrary (6’0, 185, 4.5/40) of Coral Reef HS has started since his freshman season. He claims verbal offers from Clemson and Kansas St., with Miami, Oregon, and Wisconsin not far behind.
McCrary described his contact with Miami. “I’ve been speaking with LB coach Micheal Barrow and I feel we have a good relationship. He wants me to come to the spring game and Al Golden’s camp in June.”
Relationships will be a big factor for McCrary when he chooses a university. “I’m looking for coaches I feel comfortable with while I’m there at school. I’d like to have good relationships with all my future coaches and teammates, and when I see that, I’ll know that school is right for me.”
A school’s location will also come into play when he hammers out a decision. “I wouldn’t mind leaving the state, having new surroundings and experiences, but I want to be close to my family, so we’ll see what happens,” McCrary said. “I’d like for my family to see me play.”
McCrary also plays basketball and runs track. “I play center on our basketball team, averaging around 10 points, 10 rebounds a game,” he said. “I participate in the long jump and run the 100M in track, with my fastest time being 11.2 seconds.”
The Coral Reef prospect described his best attributes on the football field. “My strengths are getting off the jam and going to get the deep ball. I also feel I’m a good route runner,” McCray said. “I’m working on my footwork and concentrating on becoming bigger and stronger.”
McCrary starts at WR for his 7-on-7 team, Hard Knocks, and he believes the experience is making him a better football player. “We’re all out here competing and getting better. Playing against the best, how you can you not improve?”
