Update: Jimmy Eden WR Landmark Christian

One of the top performers last season at wide receiver was Jimmy Eden from Landmark Christian High School in Fairburn(GA). GAVSV.com talked to the talented rising senior about the latest happenings in his recruiting.

GAVSV.com caught up with Jimmy Eden while he was in Nashville attending Camp at Vanderbilt.

"Everything went real well," said Eden. "The coaches said they were going to sit down and take a look at my film. They said they wanted to keep in touch with me."

"Right now, I'm driving down to Georgia Southern to attend their camp tomorrow morning. I'm getting a lot of interest from them right now, so I'm looking forward to getting down there for that."

Several smaller schools are showing interest in the 5-foot-9.5, 175-pounder including Elon, Liberty, Central Florida, and Georgia Southern. Eden said he is interested in all schools showing interest, but doesn't have a leader as of yet.

Through his junior year, Eden has caught 108 passes for 1,753 yards, scored 28 touchdowns.

However, that was with star quarterback Matt Moody at the helm and the War Eagles are still searching for his successor. Cole Abernathy and Tanner Bryant (Camden County transfer) appear to be the leading candidates to replace Moody in 2007.

"We have two quarterbacks right now," said Eden. "They're both capable, but they have a long way to go. I think right now, me and Matt Thornton are expecting the quarterback situation just to happen because we're so used to Matt Moody. I think it's going to be a little different once the season starts."

Moody will be tough to replace. Abernathy, who played primarily at safety and Moody's top backup last year could have a slight edge coming out of spring practice.

It looks like Eden could possibly get some carries next season after working out at running back this spring.

"I played a lot at running back during spring practice," he said. "Im going to get a lot of carries next season and I'll probably split out wide a lot as well. I've played at running back before, so I'm pretty excited about playing there again next year."
