Miami Late For Eddie Jackson
Boyd Anderson (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.) two-way athlete Eddie Jackson (6-1/175) has received a lot of attention from top-tier programs over the last few months. He now has offers from programs such as LSU, Alabama, Florida State and Arkansas after putting together a great senior season.
The Miami Hurricanes coaching staff has just started recruiting him recently. It’s not a secret that they are looking for a wide receiver and possibly another defensive back, and Jackson could play both at the next level. Unfortunately, for Miami, they may have waited too long to show interest in the South Florida standout.
“Yes, they’re too late,” responded Jackson via text earlier today when asked if the Canes waited too long to get involved with his recruitment.
The efforts from Miami head coach Al Golden and Co. has never been in question after they closed several highly rated players last year. However, the timeliness of them extending offers is a different story. Al Golden’s process of evaluating talent is very thorough which oftentimes leads them to be late on some prospects. In the recruiting world today, where the recruiting process is starting earlier than ever, waiting on recruits has become a risky business.
