Florida 2014 WR talks favorites

Signing Day 2014 may be far off in the distance, but 2014 wide receiver Jacob McCrary has three schools at the top of his list.

Jacob McCrary says Florida State, Florida, and Clemson lead the race for his skills right now.

The Miami (FL) Coral Reef standout expects to make a commitment fairly soon, possibly even this summer.

"(At) those three schools I have a great bond with the coaches, they all have terrific coaches and I love their campuses. I haven't been to Clemson yet, but I'm hoping to get up there in August," McCrary said.

The 6-foot, 175-pound wide receiver spent time at both Florida and Florida State for their camps this month and left very impressed with both programs.

"(At Florida, I liked) the atmosphere and the coaches, I loved all of them, Coach Hill, Coach T-Rob, and Coach Muschamp, those are great coaches right there," McCrary said.

"Florida State, it was my first time up there, I kind of felt the same way I felt about Florida, they have great coaches, it's somewhere I know I could call home and spend the next three or four years there."

McCrary says his mom and his coaches will be the main people helping him make his college decision, and he's excited for his mom to visit Clemson with him in August. "(I want) to see how the campus is, how the academics are, and how the team goes about their business during the day and how practice is run," he said.

The Miami native had been waiting on an offer from the Hurricanes, but wasn't able to compete at their camp last week because of an ongoing battle with turf toe. "If I was to play I knew I would have had the offer, but because of my foot, I couldn't perform," he said.

If he had earned an offer, Miami would have been the school to beat for McCrary. Now, he says he'd rather focus on the schools he does have offers from as he continues in his recruiting process. If the Canes do offer down the road, they won't be completely out of the race.

"It all depends how I'm feeling around that time," he said.

South Florida, Louisville, and Kansas State also remain in the mix for McCrary, who could pull the trigger at any time.
