Sedrick Irvin Jr. is a 5’10 180 pound running back from Miami, FL.

The Class of 2023 prospect is the son of former NFL player Sedrick Irvin and attends Gulliver Prep (same school as OT prospect Julian Armella and WR prospect Trey Lathan).

Irvin already has offers from Cincinnati, Duke, Florida, Georgia, Miami (FL), Nebraska, Ole Miss, Oregon, Penn State, Tennessee, and West Virginia, among others so he’ll truly be a blue-chip when ’23 rankings are released.

In late April, he was offered by Florida State:

TN caught up with Irvin after the offer to get his feelings on Florida State:

How did you receive the offer, and what’d it mean to you?

“Coach Johnson, and it means a lot, showing a program sees my talent and believes I could be successful at their program.”

What did Coach Johnson have to say?

“He said he can’t wait to get me up to Tallahassee and see me in person, and that he likes my running style.”

Do you plan to get up to Tally once the Dead Period is over?

“Yes, I do.”

What other schools are you hoping/planning to visit?

“I’m planning to visit any school that wants me to come up, because as of now I don’t really have any favorites.”

You mentioned your running style earlier—how would you describe your game (overall) for those who haven’t seen you play?

“I would describe myself as a strong runner who makes quick cuts and has good vision.”

What player(s) do you look up to/model your game after?

Josh Jacobs.”

How much have you watched tape of your dad playing?

“I’ve watched just about everything that’s available to me.”

And does he feel you resemble him at all?

“I don’t know, actually.”

What’s it like playing for him?

“It’s cool—I get to learn a lot.”

What does he tell you about the recruiting process and getting ready for college?

“He’s just tells me I have to get ready and keep preparing my body and mind for the next level.”

What are the biggest things you’re looking for in a college?

“Just somewhere I can develop into a great football player, student and person, along with having fun.”
