Coral Gables, FL– The University of Miami hosted an historic first ever ‘Paradise Camp’ and a few 2017 recruits really stood out. Among them was Deerfield Beach, FL high school wide out Jerry Jeudy. He was joined by St Thomas Aquinas wide out Mike Harley (a West Virginia commit), an incredible route runner.
As hard as it might seem to impress with such high acclaim as a recruit, Jeudy managed to turn even more heads. It’s his smooth running style, coupled with his athleticism and quite movements that make him so attractive at the WR position. He catches the ball away from his body and always seems in control, even when running complex routes. His ability to create separation is perhaps his best asset.
Hartley was much the same. Though he has a smaller frame, he’s as quick and shifty as Jeudy and would likely be a national recruit were he just a bit on the bigger side. Nevertheless, Hartley is an amazing talent and one of the biggest reasons St. Thomas expects to clinch a National Title in High School football this season.
Here are some highlights from the camp from our social media:
