GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Jacob Copeland likely will receive air time during the 2018 Under Armour All-America Game, but it won’t be for his college commitment.
The 4-star wide receiver from Escambia High School (Pensacola, Fla.) has moved up his decision timeline and no longer will announce at the all-star game.
Instead, Copeland told SEC Country he plans to do a commitment video in the near future.
“I’m not going to wait that long,” Copeland said. “I’m ready to make my decision.”
Alabama, Florida and Florida State will be among the finalists for Copeland, who is ranked the nation’s No. 9 wide receiver and No. 49 overall prospect in the 247Sports composite.
The 6-foot, 192-pound prospect has visited Alabama and Florida twice in recent months, with his latest trip taking place this week for the Gators’ Friday Night Lights camp.
Copeland has a close relationship with Florida coach Jim McElwain and assistants Kerry Dixon II and Tim Skipper.
“Me and the coaches talk all the time,” Copeland said. “The relationship with them has always been good. I’ve been getting recruited by Florida since my freshman year and it’s always good being back.”
