Florida DB Likes the Jags

In 2012, South Alabama will be classified as a transitional FBS team, the final step before full FBS membership. With the rise in status comes a rise in competition and a corresponding rise in talent will be required in order to compete. Adding more quality players is a necessity and the Jags may be on the cusp of doing just that.

Safety prospect Mike Dumas of Cape Coral, Florida is a much sought after prospect. JagsJungle.com caught up to him and got the latest on his recruiting.

"Recruiting is going good," said Dumas. "I've narrowed it down to South Alabama, FIU and North Carolina, but my choice is leaning more towards South Alabama."

When asked what makes the Jaguars standout over the others, Dumas had this to say:

"South Alabama has shown me more interest than other colleges. I can see myself being there and starting somewhere new. I've seen all the coaches and all the players and it seems like a team I could be on."

Dumas has been told by the South Alabama coaches that he would probably start as a safety in their defense despite playing a lot of cornerback in high school. His physical style of play indicates that he could be a very successful player at that position.

His Island Coast High School team was eliminated from playoff contention last week, but Dumas plans on making his final game a great one. After his season concludes on Friday, he will start looking towards the next step in his football career, with a commitment probably coming in December.
