Jeremiah George is one of the top linebacker prospects in central Florida. George, 5-11 and 191 pounds, is from Clearwater High School. Over the last few days he camped at Florida State. He played the safety position in Tallahassee for the first time.
"They (FSU) wanted to see me at safety," George said. "The first day I struggled a little bit with stance and backpedal. The second day went much better for me. I felt more comfortable. I had a pick six and batted some balls away. This morning I did well, especially at jamming wide receivers and I got some coverage sacks. I had a tipped ball in 7-on-7."
Did he do enough to get a possible scholarship offer from the Seminoles?
"Overall I learned a lot. Coach (Mickey) Andrews gave me a nickname. He calls me the Bull. I think he liked me a lot. I talked with coach (Chuck) Amato after practice. He said that he liked me on film and wanted to see me move around.
"For me this was the first time I ever really played defensive back. It felt great to go there and make some plays."
George camped this summer at Florida last month. He will return to both Gainesville and Tallahassee for Friday Night Lights and Seminole Showcase later this month.
George currently has nine scholarship offers from teams like Tulane, Colorado State, Kansas, Buffalo, Marshall, SMU, Troy and Western Kentucky.
