Is Hornsby Part of Package Deal With Fla. QB?

Jamar Hornsby of Sandalwood High School in Jacksonville is the No. 3 ranked wide receiver in the country according to Scout.com. The five-star standout has two official visits set, and he told GoBlueWolverine.com of a childhood friend, an Elite QB, who he is considering joining at the school of their choice.

Listing a top five of Florida, Michigan, Georgia Tech, Georgia and USC, Sandalwood High School standout Jamar Hornsby was quick to point out that he has set up official visits with one school in his top five, and one out of it. GoBlueWolverine.com caught the five-star athlete on his way home from a summer workout. "I have visit dates set with Michigan and Ohio State," he said. "I'm not sure of the exact dates, those are at home, but I'm set to go."

The 6-foot-4, 195-pound Hornsby is one of the top players in the country. He is also good friends with another top Florida standout. "Tim Tebow and I played Pop-Warner football together," he said. "We don't play together now, and I don't play against him, but we talk all the time and he is a good friend of mine. We certainly talk about going to school together." Two common schools are on the list for both Sunshine State stars - Florida and Michigan.

Hornsby has maintained for some time that the Gators hold the number one spot in his heart. He said Florida head coach Urban Meyer text-messages Hornsby every morning promptly at 7:30 a.m. "That's my wake up call," he said. Hornsby will be in Gainesville this weekend. "I'm going down there for a camp," he said. "I'm not sure if I'll take an official visit to Florida. They are my leaders, but I haven't been to Michigan or Ohio State yet."

The Michigan staff has offered the coveted No. 1 jersey to Hornsby should he choose the Wolverines. However, his favorite player sported one digit up. "Charles Woodson is my favorite player," he said. "A lot of schools are telling me I can play both ways. Michigan is telling me I can come in and play right away. Florida has a bunch of players coming out this year so they'll have plenty of playing time."

He said he would hold off on announcing until Signing Day, unless he is invited to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas. "If I get to play there I'll almost certainly announce there," he said.
