Berlin (NY) Milford Prep
Prospect Ranking: Vermiglio two-star prospect according to Scout.com.
Accomplishments: Vermiglio helped lead Milford Academy to a 7-3 record in 2006 and plowed the way for five-star tailback Graig Cooper (Miami commitment) to rush for 1,327 yards and 13 touchdowns.
Academics: Vermiglio projects as an academic qualifier.
The Recruiting Scene: Jake Vermiglio didn't earn the scholarship offers he wanted as a senior in high school so he enrolled at Milford Academy to improve his game and to hopefully earn more offers. That plan worked as the Pack made an offer after coach O'Brien made the move from Boston College to NC State. Vermiglio also had offers from Eastern Michigan, Toledo, Buffalo and Ohio.
Scouting Report: "He's a 305-pounder who can run with tight ends and linebackers. He never misses practice, works hard and wants to get better. He already is a good pass blocker." -- Milford coach William Chaplick (Charlotte Observer)
