Thursday evening, Okeechobee High School senior Jajuan Cherry took to Twitter to do what all promising college football players eventually must do: write out their commitment letter in Notes and paste it into a tweet.
I will be committing to the university of south Florida‼️‼️ #gobulls @BrahmanFootball @DylanTedders @DTedders @Andrew_Ivins @JonSantucci pic.twitter.com/zVBAN136WZ— Jajuan Cherry3️⃣ (@cherry3jajuan) June 23, 2017
Cherry, a 5’8”, 166-pound athlete, lines up all over the field for the Brahmans. In his junior year Hudl reel, you can see him returning kicks, playing running back and wide receiver on offense, and setting up as a safety on defense.
Last year the Brahmans went 8-2 and reached the Class 6A state playoffs. Cherry ran 35 times for 279 yards, caught 11 passes for 150 yards, racked up 306 yards in kick returns, made 64 tackles, and intercepted three passes.
The only scouting service to rate Cherry so far is Rivals, who gave him three stars. Jajuan is the third USF verbal commit in their 2018 recruiting class, following Bartram Trail lineman Brad Cecil and South Dade tight end Chris Carter, Jr.
P.S. Don’t tweet at recruits. Even those of you who tweeted to congratulate him for his commitment. That still counts.
