Jacksonville (FL) Sandalwood high school three-star defensive back Quran Hafiz is back in the Sunshine State, after spending the weekend visiting Nebraska.
“I had a great trip, I wouldn't say I was surprised, but I was really impressed,” said Hafiz, who is considering Indiana, Iowa State, Syrcause, Memphi, Minnesota, Oregon State and Fresno State.“I feel I can fit into their scheme pretty well. I saw a lot of press and off-man and some cover 3 and 4 being ran.”
A former Iowa State commitment, Hafiz put himself back on the market in October. Sandalwood is the home of current Nebraska junior cornerback Chris Jones.
“Actually Chris was my host,” said Hafiz. “It's good to see him at Nebraska. He’s like an true older brother. It's good to see his hard work paying off and I hope and pray to see him on Sunday's in the next couple years. He knows how hard we compete with each other, so I hope and plan to come in college and try to top his performance on and off the field. He's a great student also.”
Hafiz said Nebraska’s performance lab was the highlight of his trip. He plans to visit Iowa State in the coming weeks. He would have one more trip to use after his stop in Ames if he chooses.
“I will take my trips and then I'll compare all the schools to make my decision,” said Hafiz. “I’m going to sign my financial aid agreement on Dec. 19 then enroll in January of the school of my choice.”
