Considered one of the top tight ends from the west coast, Jimmy Jaggers was on hand for Michigan's joint satellite camp with USC last week. The 2017 four-star standout, who is being recruited by both team’s, had nothing but positive things to say about his camp experience.
“It was good,” he said of his camp experience. “A lot of good guys out here, a lot of competition.”
Adding: “It was just what I expected. Coach (Jim) Harbaugh is a real energetic guy. He’s a good guy. (USC coach John Baxter) has his experience too.”
And Harbaugh's unique personality, of course, came out throughout the camp, says Jaggers.
“I love him,” he said of Harbaugh. “He’s the ultra competitive and that’s what I like.”
Where does Michigan stand in his recruitment exactly?
“They are still in it,” he said. “I don’t have any leaders. I’m just trying to cross off all T’s and cross the I’s, you know?”
While Jaggers is still considering the Wolverines, in-state power USC’s local appeal has definitely caught his attention.
“I started going to (southern) Cal and noticed how different things are, it’s a nice area,” he said. “I really like it down there. I’m not as desperate to get away from home anymore.”
Adding: “I like USC a lot,” Jaggers said. “It is close to home. Coach Baxter is a real good coach. I think Coach Holmes is bringing them in the right direction.”
Other than USC and Michigan, Jaggers says Florida, Alabama, Washington and UCLA are recruiting him the hardest. He also noted he plans to visit Alabama in mid-July. And with his plan of graduating early, he says he be looking ta certain things in each program before making his commitment known this year.
“Just timing, the opportunity, things like that,” Jaggers said on his deciding factors. “How they fit me. How hard they are recruiting me, (and) If I feel comfortable living in that area.”
While Jaggers doesn’t have a leader at the moment, he says he plans to unleash his top list of schools in July.
