    "I get a few letters from Vanderbilt but not as many as I have gotten from Mississippi State," said the 5-9, 170-pound cornerback. "I've also gotten letters from Nebraska, Stanford and Clemson."

    He attended a couple of camps this past summer and his recruitment has taken off since then.

    "I have been to the Mississippi State camp and the Vanderbilt camp," said Jamaris. "I ran a 4.39 at Mississippi State. The first thing the (Mississippi State) coaches did was come up to me and tell me that I was clocked at 4.3. They got that time and they have been recruiting me ever since."

    He's just now starting to understand the recruiting process.

    "I haven't looked into recruiting that much, but it's crazy how it gets because of how many people start wanting you once your name gets out there," said Jamaris, who has been starting at cornerback for Florence HS since his sophomore season.

    As for which schools he likes, it's still early but two have made an impression on him.

    "I'm liking Mississippi State right now," said Jamaris. "I like Florida, too. I'm a Florida guy."

    Although college coaches are really impressed with his exceptional speed, there's more to Jamaris than his speed. He's also a guy who is not afraid to get physical.

    "I'm a small bodied guy but I like contact," said the youngster. "I always try to dominate the guy who lines up in front of me."
