CU Offers 2018 Florida Back

The Buffaloes are looking for more Florida speed with a recent offer to 2018 Holy Trinity Episcopal School (Melbourne, Fla.) running back Jashaun Corbin.

Corbin said his CU offer came from head coach Mike MacIntyre, with Buffs assistant Jim Jeffcoat assisting in the Florida recruiting efforts.

“Yes sir, coach Jeffcoat. I actually talked with the head coach,” Corbin said on receiving an offer from CU.

“First they talked about the weather, I’m not used to the weather so they were explaining that. They liked my film, said I’m a good player and offered a full scholarship.”

Corbin has racked up 17 offers heading into the spring. The Colorado interest is new and welcomed by the 5-foot-11, 183-pound three-star back.

“They’ve been recruiting me for about two weeks, three weeks,” Corbin continued on CU.

“I know it’s a beautiful campus. They were in the top 10 last year. I know they produce a lot of good players in the league and they’re going to have a good team.”

Despite holding lofty offers from the likes of Florida State, Tennessee and Mississippi, Corbin isn’t in a rush to name favorites. He sounds somewhat conflicted on whether he’ll stay in Florida for college or venture abroad.

“Not right now. Everybody’s kind of mutual,” Corbin said, adding he has a trip coming up to Tallahassee.

“I would like to go out of state, but I wouldn’t be surprised if I end up staying in state. I guess I’m not really sure.”

Colorado likes Corbin at the running back position. Once he’s up to top speed, see you later.

“Mostly running back, but they see me as an athlete also. Good catching ability, route running, explosiveness, good vision, speed. Home run,” Corbin said on his playing style.

“I had over 600 yards receiving and over 1,000 rushing,” he continued on his junior season.

The Florida three-star does not root for a specific college team. The Buffs are hoping to continue to reel in Florida prospects. Anthony Julmisse, Johnny Huntley, Shamar Hamilton, Carson Wells … Jashaun Corbin?

“That’s what [MacIntyre] was telling me,” Corbin said of the list of recent Buffs to come out of the state of the Sunshine State.
