Tampa (Fla.) Jesuit’s Aaron Fryer might not be getting the hype of some of the other top running backs in the state, but lately he’s putting up some serious numbers that will make everyone take notice. In the last three playoff games, he has rushed for an amazing 700 yards and seven touchdowns.
Recently, Rivals.com caught up with the Jesuit standout to find out the latest on his recruitment.
“Tonight, I have an in-home visit with Army,” the 5-foot-11 pound running back said.
“All of the other schools are going to wait on the in-home visits so that I can concentrate on the playoffs. The only official visit that I have set up is with Duke on January, 17th. I’m going to hold off on scheduling anymore official visits. My plan is for me and my parents to meet with some the coaches in my home before I set anything up.”
Fryer, a running back with power, is strongly considering Army, Air Force, Navy, Boston College, Duke, and Vanderbilt.
South Florida is the only in-state school that he’s considering.
“South Florida has a great academic program,” Fryer said. “They are going into Conference USA. This year they beat three out four teams in Conference USA, including Southern Miss.”
The Miami native wants to play for a program that makes him comfortable and one that makes him feel like home. Academics will also be a strong factor.
This Friday, Fryer and his Jesuit teammates will square off against Rockledge in the Class 2A semifinals.
