LB signee ready to report

June 24th is right around the corner and that means freshmen are to report to campus for the start of summer school. Read on to find out what this LB signee has been up to and if he'll be on campus in a little over a week.

"I've been working out real hard, hitting up the weight room," Jackson Central-Merry (TN) linebacker Gavin Hardin said. "I haven't been hitting my maxes (on the weight bench) because I've just been getting in shape because when I get down there, I'll be running a lot and I just want to be ready for it."

Hardin received a special gift on his birthday, a qualifying score on the ACT. After scoring a 20, which was a high enough score to qualify for the University of Miami. He is now eligible to enroll for summer school and will report on June 24th.

"It felt great, it was a big load off my back," Hardin said. "I report on the 24th (of June), so I'll be down there next Tuesday, I'm real excited."

With that road bump behind him, he can now look forward to his future as a Miami Hurricane.

"I think they might use me as the rush end / outside linebacker," Hardin said. "That is right up my ally, it is what I did in high school."

Hardin, like most incoming freshmen, is excited to get on campus.

"I will get down there and play my part," Hardin said. "I look forward to playing and giving all of my efforts to school and football."
