StateFans Evaluation: Mr. Smooth... it's that simple. Jeremy just glides across the field and is a big-time playmaker. He's a tough, physical corner who at a legit 6'3 loves to play press coverage. Likes contact and is a natural knee-bender who will come up and stuff the run. A terrific athlete, he has great speed and the ability to make up ground in a hurry. Playing in an aggressive Opelika defense, he's familiar with the coverage NC State uses and has very good technique. Can cover the slant and fade routes effectively, and uses his hands well off the line of scrimmage. If he keeps growing then he could end up at free safety in college, but I love his upside at cornerback. A great pickup for the Wolfpack who is fully qualified to play as a freshman.
