Four-star cornerback Jordan Miner has all kinds of options for his college career, with more than 20 offers nationally and eight from SEC programs.

“The schools that are coming after me the hardest are Penn State, Tennessee, North Carolina, Florida, Oregon, Auburn and Ole Miss,” Miner told GN.

Miner (6 feet 1, 177 pounds), from Wesley Chapel (Fla.) Wiregrass Ranch, in the Tampa suburbs, is a top-30 cornerback prospect nationally and a top-300 prospect overall in the class of 2018.

“I see the rankings and stuff like that, but I don’t think it really has sunk in,” Miner said regarding his high national ranking. “Probably when the whole process is over, I will sit back and think about it or tell my kids or something.”

Miner has offers from eight SEC schools: Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, South Carolina and Tennessee. He knows exactly what he is looking for in a college destination.

“A school with great opportunities and with sports marketing/management,” Miner said. “A school that can help me develop my skills to hopefully make the NFL and to win a national championship.”

How would Miner describe his game?

“I’m a player that can make plays at any position,” Miner said. “I have good ball skills and a high football IQ.”

Even though the recruiting process can be tough at times, Miner wouldn’t trade it for anything.

“I’m enjoying it, even though it can be very stressful,” he said. “But I wouldn’t want to have it any other way.”
