Four-star wide receiver Jacob Copeland dropped a top ten list of schools back in June of 2016 and hasn’t really narrowed it down until now. In an interview with ESPN (Insider) he detailed the five schools at the top of his list now and who has become the leader.
The 6’0″, 189-pound receiver out of Pensacola, Fla. said why he chose the top school he’s got right now and it makes perfect sense:
“Right now, I have Clemson, Florida, Auburn, Miami and North Carolina at the top. But Clemson, they are set high for me. I just love their passing game and the way they throw the ball around. I would say Clemson is my leader.
“Clemson, that’s ‘Wide Receiver U’. They have like five receivers on the field at once, they are going to throw the ball around a lot. I have a good relationship with (offensive coordinator) Coach Jeff Scott. He just told me that I have a good skill set and he said if I just come in and work that I have a guarantee that I can come in and start.”
He also went on to say that Florida is a close second because coach Jim McElwain offered him first when he took the head coaching job. However, the powerhouse that is Alabama is falling behind because they’re more of a running team and he does not want to go to a run-dominant team.
Copeland is ranked as the No. 38 recruit in the country by ESPN and the No. 5 receiver with offers from Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Michigan and Ohio State.
Here are some of his highlights:
