Nature Coast Tech High School wide receiver Ja'Juan Story spoke to CUTigers shortly after picking up the offer from the Tigers.

"They never sent me anything. That just popped up, just like, bam," he said.

Defensive ends coach Chris Rumph, Story's main recruiter, extended the offer.

"It was surprising," he said.

They spent most of the conversation getting to know one another.

"He was just trying to get to know me. Really, he was just getting all of my information," Story said.

So far this spring, Story has visited South Florida for a scrimmage and to UCF and Florida State for practices. He does want to check out Clemson.

"I'm going to come to Clemson, it's going to be in the summer because it's kind of far," he said.

The offer was No. 19 for Story, joining the likes of Florida State, Auburn, Ohio state and Penn State. None stand out to this point.

"I don't really have a group of schools I like. I just want to see some schools. I know I have a lot of good opportunities," he said. "I just want to see what's what. I don't have any favorites."

Story does know what he's looking for with each school he's considering.

"Academics, playing time, the homely feeling," he said.

In the Hernando County Track and Field Championships on March 31, Story won the 100, 200 and ran a leg on the winning 4x100 team, helping Nature Coast Tech to the overall championship.

During his junior season on the football field, he ran for 265 yards as a quarterback and made 13 catches for 432 yards. On defense, he had 22 tackles and 3 interceptions.
