CaneHunt ’14: Outside Linebackers (OLB) | FEB 25

Miami will offer scholarships to approximately 170-200 prospects every year. Each school has a BIG Board and position boards, which list prospects by the school’s priorities. Our “CaneHunt” boards are our attempt to “guess” the Hurricanes’ recruiting priorities. These boards will change throughout the recruiting cycle. Check back often during the year to check on the boards and get the latest updates on prospects. We hope you enjoy CaneHunt ’14.

Miami’s Need: 2
The Canes’ current roster has five OLBs, including early enrollee Alex Figueroa. Two additional freshmen (Grace & Bond) will join the group this summer. Only one OLB (Tyrone Cornileus) will be a senior this season. Look for the Canes to sign two (2) prospects in this class.

Prospects:

1. Name: Vincent Jackson

Hometown/School: Jesuit (Tampa, FL)
HT: 6-2 | WT: 235 | 40:
Season Stats: (2 yrs) 131 tackles | 21 sacks
247Sports Composite: Rating: 86 Rank: #43 OLB
Scouting Report (s): NA
Schools of Interest: (31) Too many to list
Leader(s): Oklahoma
Status: Offered
Chance: Too early

UPDATES:

2/25/13: Vincent Jackson is a hard hitting OLB from the Tampa area. For a prospect that is rated an 86, according to 247Sports Composite, Vincent has a ridiculous number of schools interested in him. Look for his rating and rank to soar this spring and summer. The canes hope to keep the Tampa pipeline open. Perhaps Coach Scott will impact recruiting in this area.

It will be a tough pull for the Canes if we can’ get him on campus.
