According to a report from Corey Bender of Scout.com on Sunday, the Miami Hurricanes’ football program has landed a commitment from highly-rated outside linebacker Bradley Jennings, Jr. Added to the school’s 2017 recruiting class, the up-and-comer is currently a senior at Sandalwood High School in Jacksonville, Florida.
“It’s just a great school for me right now,” Jennings said. “I love the school and coaches, and I think it’s the best program for me right now. I’m 100 percent in for Miami. I just made my decision off what is best for me, and my dad wants what’s best for me as well, so we both agreed that this was the best decision. I told him I wanted to go to Miami.”
Standing at 6-3 and 215 pounds, the three-star linebacker chose the Hurricanes over other scholarship offers from the Michigan Wolverines, North Carolina Tar Heels, Louisville Cardinals, Duke Blue Devils, West Virginia Mountaineers, Indiana Hoosiers, South Florida Bulls and Central Florida Knights among several others. Even so, he was also previously committed to Florida State before switching over to an in-state rival of the Seminoles.
“They say they really want me and I’m their guy at linebacker,” Jennings added. “They want me to help them build on the class of 2017.”
Ranked as the No. 57 outside linebacker in the country, Jennings is also rated as the state of Florida’s No. 8 outside linebacker, according to Scout.com. It is also worth noting that he is ranked as the No. 23 outside linebacker in the South, a region that provides a tremendous amount of the talent to collegiate programs throughout the country.
