A week ago, the Seminoles offered and on Wednesday Ole Miss stopped by practice and quickly made sure that Jacob McCrary knew he was a wanted man.
“Florida State came Friday of last week,” McCrary said by phone late Thursday night. “I talked to the coach and he told me I was the number one receiver on the board and they offered me. Ole Miss came Wednesday and they offered me.”
He now holds offers from Clemson, Kansas State, Florida State, and Ole Miss and it won’t stop there. The Noles really made a mark on him last week.
“They feel like I can be a big part of what they have going on at Florida State,” he said. “They say I will fit right in with the offense they are running. In the next few years they are going to keep their eye on me and I am one of their top recruits.”
He plans on taking his time with the process.
“I want to get as many offers as I can and when they all come in I will sit down with my family and pick the best college that is right for me,” he said before adding that his coaches will also help him with the final decision. My mom and my coaches… those are the people that are a big part of my life and will send me to the right place and help me make the right decision.”
The coaches that are in to see him like his speed and strength and McCrary says he looks up to a couple of All-American types and patters his game after them
“I am good at the deep ball, getting off of the jam, and running my routes,” he said about the coaches praising his speed and quickness. “I kind of look up to Dez Bryant and Sammy Watkins, I really look up to those two.”
And when the time comes to head off to school he knows it will be great, but tough on his mother.
“It will be tough, but if I end up staying in the state of Florida it won’t be so bad,” he said. “She talks about it a little, but not too much because it brings a tear to her eyes. I know in two years she will be boohoo crying.”
And on the field, defensive backs will be the ones shedding tears.
