At 5-foot-9.5, 175-pounds, Jimmy Eden put up some pretty good numbers in 2006 as a member of the Landmark Christian War Eagles. A playmaker at the wide receiver position, Eden had 37 receptions for 686 yards and 7 touchdowns.
"Right now, I'm getting letters from Auburn, Alabama, Central Florida and a bunch of Division-IAA colleges," said Eden. "It's starting to get going. This is the first time I've ever really received stuff, so I'm just pretty excited to be getting all the attention right now."
As a junior, Eden overcame an early-season bout with mononucleosis, but still showed flashes of the elusiveness and instincts that makes him so special.
"Three games into the season the doctors told me I had mono," said Eden. "The doctors told me that I couldn't play football. But there was no way that I was not going to play. So I played the rest of the season with mono. It was pretty tough, but the season went well."
Eden says that a school from the Big 12 Conference sits in the leader spot.
"Texas Tech is my top school," Eden said. "If I could play anywhere I wanted, it would probably be Texas Tech. I think their offense really suits me best. Alabama and Auburn are also right up there."
What will be the main factors in Eden's decision?
"Well, I want to be an architect," said Eden. "So good academics is always important. The atmosphere and coaching staff will also be very important to me."
At the Kennedy/CES combine on February 18th, Eden ran a 4.59-second 40-yard dash, 4.38-second 20-yard shuttle and a 33-inch vertical jump. He was named AJC All-State special teams performer and GACA All-State as a wide receiver.
