MIAMI, Fla. - Wide receiver DeAndre Jasper had six receptions for 102 yards and a two touchdowns in Miami-Dade's 31-21 victory in the 18th Annual Nike South Florida All-Star Game. That performance was good enough for the Miami (Fla.) Jackson wide receiver to take home MVP honors.
"It was a great honor taking home MVP honors in the South Florida game," Jasper said. "It was my intention to come out here and win MVP. I just planned to come out and play hard in my last high school game."
The three-star wideout has narrowed his top four - Auburn, Central Florida, Florida International, and Marshall - down to a top three.
"It is pretty much out of Auburn, FIU, and Marshall," Jasper said. "Those are my top three."
David Kelly's departure from UCF ended Jasper's courtship with the Knights.
He is planning to take an official visit in early January. It will be his second official visit.
"I am going to FIU on January 6th," Jasper said. "I have already gone to Marshall and I am trying to get a date to Auburn."
The 5-foot-11, 180-pound wideout talked about his official visit to Marshall during the season.
"Marshall's campus was real nice," Jasper said. "Two of my friends play up there, (quarterback) Rakeem Cato and (wide receiver) Tommy Shuler. I would like a chance to play with them."
At this stage, Jasper says that all three of his finalists are even. He says that distance will not be a factor in his decision. As for when that decision will come, Jasper says it will be prior to National Signing Day.
"Soon, real soon," Jasper said. "It will be before Signing Day, probably right after that FIU visit."
