At 6-foot-3 and 230 pounds, Lemons is blessed with 4.65 speed and a 350-pound bench press.
"Jermaine's a great player for us," Coach Simmonds said. "He looks like a body builder."
Lemons helped his team reach the 4th round of the state playoffs as a junior. He did so by coming up with 84 tackles, 12 sacks, five caused fumbles, and four recoveries. He did it by playing all over the field.
"I can play anywhere on the front 7," Lemons told me. "I'll probably be a outside linebacker or defensive end in college though."
And a real good one.
Inside the classroom, Lemons carries a 3.7 GPA and he's getting ready to take the SAT's coming up. He scored an 1120 on the pre-SAT's a few months ago.
Lemons, who plans on attending the NIKE Camp, says he has three early favorites when it comes to college choices.
"I like Miami, Georgia Tech, and Florida State the best," he said. "Florida State gets a lot of publicity and they put out a lot of linebackers and defensive ends into the pro's. I have been liking Miami since I was real little. I have a few aunts and uncles that went to school there. I'm going to check them out sometime this spring."
Lemons will likely enter spring football as one of the top 5 defensive end prospects in the state. He seems to be a very exciting prospect on tape and I look forward to watching him in person this spring.
