BEAVERTON, Ore. — Jerry Jeudy is one of Alabama’s top wide receiver priorities in the Class of 2017, but he’s not ready to declare the Crimson Tide his leader just yet.
Jeudy, a 4-star prospect from Deerfield Beach High School (Pompano Beach, Fla.), told SEC Country that Alabama, Florida, Tennessee and Miami are recruiting him the hardest right now, but if he had to make a decision Wednesday, he knows why he would choose Alabama.
“Every time I go there, it feels like home,” Jeudy said. “They treat me like family there. The coaching staff has kept it real with me since the beginning. They never change their message to me. They tell me the same thing when I go up there.”
He expanded on his feelings for Alabama.
“The vibe around there is great,” Jeudy said. “It’s really laid back and all about business. The environment doesn’t matter too much to me.”
The 6-foot-1, 180-pounder had a chance to compete alongside Alabama quarterback commit Tua Tagovailoa at Nike’s The Opening finals. The nation’s No. 7 wide receiver was impressed with Tagovailoa’s skills.
“He’s got a laser arm,” Jeudy said. “He’s a really confident quarterback. He’s very outgoing, too.”
Jeudy will take official visits to Alabama, Florida, Tennessee and Miami. The fifth official visit is still up in there at this point. He is expecting to make a decision after his all of his official visits are finished.
