ORLANDO, Fla. — Jacob Mathis will likely play his college ball in the SEC.
The 4-star tight end from Tampa (Fla.) Berkley Prep officially visited Michigan in October, but the Wolverines were unable to land the Under Armour All-American.
Mathis told SEC Country he’s still looking for “that feeling” from a school, and he’ll visit three SEC programs next month in search of it.
Here’s what Mathis likes about each school:
Alabama: “Lane Kiffin. I like him as an OC. He puts everybody in a place where they’re going to succeed and make plays for him.”
Florida: “Obviously if I go in and work hard, I have a chance to play early. There’s a lot of opportunity for me to get on the field.”
Ole Miss: “I love coach (Hugh) Freeze and I love coach (Maurice) Harris, the tight ends coach. Great atmosphere there. I just love the school in general.”
Mathis said Michigan is still in the mix as well. The 6-foot-4, 225-pounder plans to decide on signing day.
“I could see myself succeeding at all the schools I’m considering,” Mathis said. “I’m just trying to figure out what’s honestly best for me.”
