Looking for a tough, physical running back? If so, then Tampa (Fla.) Jesuit’s Aaron Fryer is the man for the job. The 5-foot-11 and 205 pound standout earned a spot on the all-country team by rushing for an estimated 1,700 yards and 17 touchdowns as a junior. He has an impressive list of offers, but he’s still waiting on some of his favorite schools to step up to the plate and offer.
“I have offers from Boston College, Duke, Central Florida, South Florida, Wake Forrest, Pittsburgh, and Rutgers,” Fryer said. “There are a couple more schools that offered, but I can’t remember their names. I talked with North Carolina the other day, but I’m not sure if they offered me or not. The schools that I like are Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, Miami, and Maryland. Miami was my favorite team growing up, but they haven’t called. I liked them because some of my family lives there, plus I like the city. Florida has called, and they want me to come to their camp in June.”
Some that have seen Fryer play compare his style to one of his favorite players growing up.
“My favorite player growing up was Edgerin James,” Fryer said. “Some of the people that have seen me run say that run a lot like him. I’m definitely a power runner. I have good speed for my size, and I’m pretty smart. I can carry the ball a lot, and maintain the same intensity on every play.”
Fryer told FlaRecruiting.com that he’s looking for schools were the player/coach relationship is strong and the academics are solid. He wants to major in Engineering.
This summer Fryer will camp at Florida on June 22nd and North Carolina on June 15th. He’s also considering camping at Tulane, Georgia Tech, and Georgia.
