Tyreece Jiles was a quarterback early in his high school career, but flipped over to cornerback as a junior. The 6'0, 175 pound athlete has picked up over 20 offers on the recruiting trail.
"I really like Florida State, they are the one school that has not offered that I am interested in. I camped up there earlier this week, I think I did pretty good. There were a lot of top players there so the competition was very tough."
Of the schools that have offered, seven stand out,
He had a few comments on the seven schools that intrigue him,
Nebraska: "I have always been a fan of Nebraska, I have watched them on TV, and it would be a big change from Cape Coral."
Wake Forest: "They were one of the first offers, it is an outstanding school, and I know a couple of players(Tommy Bohanon and Jonathan Garcia) who love it there."
Iowa State: "Coach Burnham is great, everyone likes him in the area. Like Nebraska, it would be a big change and I like that. They recruit Florida hard."
North Carolina: "I keep hearing that Chapel Hill is awesome. It is certainly a school I will get to see at some point."
Kentucky: "I do not know much about them, but it is the SEC, and I think they are on the rise. A few friends went through there on a recent trip and they are really talking about them."
Miami: "My sister is going to Miami on a track scholarship, it is close to home, and it is the U. I'm interested in them for sure."
Jiles hopes to see a few of these schools in the summer, "I don't know the exact plans, but I will hit the road with my coach and see as many as possible."
In terms of when he will commit, Jiles is ready to, but he has a problem,
"I really have not been anywhere in this country. I had never really been north of Tampa until I had a track meet in Gainesville and visiting Tallahassee in the Spring. I just have to see some of the schools at least once and develop a relationship with the school. When I know, I will commit. I don't want to fool around."
