RECRUITING: Gators on top for Cunningham

Jermaine Cunningham is one of the most explosive defensive ends in the country. He had 19 sacks and 120 tackles from his defensive end spot on a Stephenson team that gave up a mere 4.2 points per game over the last nine games of the season in which the Jaguars posted a nine game winning streak to finish 9-1.

Cunningham has four of his official visits set up, and he names a favorite amongst his leaders.

"Right now Florida, Auburn, and Tennessee are calling me every week," said Cunningham. "We talk about my upcoming visits. I'm going to Virginia Tech this weekend, Tennessee when they play Memphis (11-12), Auburn when they play Alabama (11-19), and Florida when they play Florida State (11-26). I'm not sure about my last visit."

"Florida is my leader right now followed by Auburn, Tennessee, then Virginia Tech."

Stephenson opens the playoffs tonight against Tift County as a #1 seed after winning its region. If Stephenson makes its goal of reaching the Georgia Dome and the Semi-Finals, Cunningham would need to reschedule his official visit to Florida as the 5A Semi-Final game is scheduled for Saturday November 26th at 6:00 PM.
