Indiana was able to land a couple defensive backs from Florida in the 2017 class, and in the 2018 class the Hoosiers are working hard to land some more secondary prospects from the Sunshine State. One cornerback they have set their sights on is Jordan Miner from Wiregrass Ranch H.S. in Wesley Chapel, FL. Peegs.com spoke with Miner about his recruiting, and about his interest in the Hoosiers.
Miner said IU is a program that is standing out to him because of the league they play in, and because they have been successful in adding prospects from Florida to their roster in recent years.
"I'm very interested in Indiana," he said about the Hoosiers. "It's a great school with a lot of local commits, and they play in one of the best conferences."
The talented prospect has been primarily communicating with Indiana cornerbacks coach Brandon Shelby, and the message from the IU assistant is they need more players like Miner in their secondary.
"I've just been talking to my position coach, and we are just trying to build a strong relationship," Miner said about his communication with Indiana. "He told me that they like physical corners. He also said that they need a guy like me to help them at that position."
Miner said that he plans on getting up to Bloomington either this summer for an unofficial visit or this fall for an official visit.
"I will probably try to go up in the summer, and if not then, I will go there for an official visit," he said about visiting IU. "I'm not sure yet when I will be able to visit there."
When it comes to his decision the athletic corner said that the biggest factor for him is finding a school where he feels comfortable away from the football field.
"Just a school that fits me the best outside of football because school is more important," he said when asked what he is looking for in a school.
Miner, who plans on making a decision after he visits the schools that are recruiting, said that he does not have a list of favorites at this time.
"After I visit all the schools I'm really considering I plan on deciding, so either before or after the season," he said. "Every school in my process still has a chance I'm just weighing out my options right now."
The 6-foot-1, 185-pound standout from Wiregrass Ranch H.S. currently has offers from Indiana, Maryland, Penn State, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Tech, Kentucky, Ole Miss, North Carolina, N.C. State, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Bowling Green, Central Florida, Florida Atlantic, Middle Tennessee State, South Florida, Toledo and Tulane.
