Kind of a trick question but the answer is....................................................Gabe Terry. He was recruited by UM while attending Boystown in Omaha. Got in trouble (hippie lettuce) and transferred to Tennessee State.
Terry is really from Palm Beach. He went to high school up there for a minute, won a wrestling championship while he was in Nebraska. IIRC, he was up there because he ran into some trouble down here...

Boys town is /was some sort of juvenile diversion thing...he likely had juvenile criminal charges and they likely were going to send him to a djj program in florida...but someone may have known of his football/sports exploits and hook that boys town situation up out in Nebraska. Because they have Boystown in florida as well.

In florida if your in a djj program you aint playing sports..just lock down with school...The last program similar i can remember was MIAMI BAYPOINT. Willie Williams was there b4 Pace for 6 months when he was getting in troule in the 9th grade.

Hope this doesn’t take us out of the running for his cousin Woods.
Well we know It doesn’t help lol. Hopefully Justice and Jackson’s dad had honest conversations about the situation. Miami would get a boost if Jackson goes to Notre Dame (smh) or Oklahoma because they are not on Woods’ list.

Apparently we stopped talking to the kid and he is no longer considering us. This is according to an update on OU’s board from today.



“Well, fortunately for OU, it seems as though Jackson's field is even narrower than most realize. Earlier this year, Jackson released a top five that included Notre Dame, Texas A&M and Miami in addition to the Sooners and Sun Devils. However, communication with Miami has dropped off, and Jackson told me that he is no longer considering the Hurricanes.”

Gotta figure the coaches feel good about the local kids. Hope one or two of them pop soon.

Smh those times are crazy for any position. Spectacular for a LB. Would've kept talking to him off the speed and connection to Woods' alone.

He ran a 10.58 in prelims last week (10.8 in the finals). It was chilly that day too.
Weak comp or not that would be one of the fastest linebackers we’ve ever had here. We’ve had skill position players start here that never ran that
