Jaheim Singletary is one of the most coveted players in America.
The Class of 2022 cornerback from Robert E. Lee High School in Jacksonville, FL, has a 95 rating from 247 Sports and is listed as the 15th best player nationally (third-best CB and fourth-best player in Florida).
Wednesday was a busy day for the Jacksonville product, as the new rankings (noted above) were released for ’22 players, and he released his top six contenders, as well:
TN had a chance to catch up with Singletary Wednesday night and got him to break down the reasons behind his top six:
Florida Gators: “They recruit me the hardest. They try to get me down every chance they get. [I] love Florida. It’s close to home, as well.”
Florida State Seminoles: “I love the area and the coaches—they’re so dedicated into getting me. I love all the coaches’ energy.”
Georgia Bulldogs: “I love Georgia’s work ethic. I went [up] for a summer camp. [I] love the aggression. You work for everything; nothing is given. Talking to Coach (Kirby) Smart, he’s a very serious man. [I] love what Georgia has to give.”
LSU Tigers: “DBU. [It’s] always been one of my dream schools, as a DB. They have good energy, as well, [and] they want me highly.”
Oklahoma Sooners: Coaches (Lincoln) Riley and (Roy) Manning (CB’s) are good dudes. My mother loves talking to them. They make my mom happy, so they have a chance on me. And OU is a DB dream.”
USC Trojans: “[It’s] always been a dream of [mine to] go to the west coast. Coach Donte (Williams) (CB’s) recruited me at Oregon, and I followed him to USC. He’s a cool dude—very real and straightforward with you; I like that about him. He wants me in the best position, and I feel USC can put me in place.”
Based on the comments for each program, you can’t help but feel the Seminoles are sixth out of six here, but that makes sense, as they have a totally new staff and haven’t been able to build those relationships. Having said that, at least the ’Noles have a seat at the table.
