J.R. Hemingway Profile
Wide receiver J.R. Hemingway (6-2, 205, 4.5) from Conway (S.C.) finished his junior season with 52 receptions for 846 yards and 10 touchdowns. He benches 275 pounds, squats 385 and has a 37-inch vertical jump.
"I can get to the deep ball well," Hemingway said. "I'm a deep threat. I also use my strength well on the short routes and can get through traffic. I have good feet and get open really well. I need to improve my technique and get stronger so I can overpower people easier."
Hemingway said he has approximately 22 scholarship offers, but denies a favorite. "I want to find a school that has good coaches that I get along with. I want to have a good relationship with my coach and be able to talk to him about anything," Hemingway said. "Also, I want a school that passes the ball and where I'll be able to get the ball a lot."
Some of the schools that Hemingway is considering are Clemson, South Carolina, Florida, Miami, Notre Dame and Michigan. All of those have offered. He also has offers from Florida State, North Carolina, Virginia Tech, Virginia, Nebraska, Colorado, Mississippi State and Boston College, to name a few.
"South Carolina is only about one and a half hours away, but that don't matter. I'll go away," Hemingway said. "I've been there a bunch of times and I like their game day atmosphere. It's a nice place.
"I also went to the Michigan camp last summer and like that environment a lot. They pass the ball and have great tradition," Hemingway said.
"This summer I'm gonna try to visit a couple of schools. I think I'll go to Florida and check out Florida, Florida State and Miami. I'd also really like to go to Notre Dame. They air the ball out a lot and I like coach Charlie Weis. He was great with the Patriots and did well last year at Notre Dame too. They are still getting better.
"I'm looking at everybody right now," Hemingway said. "I won't be narrowing it down until my season starts."
He reports a 2.9 GPA and an 18 on his ACT.
