Cardinal Gibbons DE Jeremy Longo is quick off the ball and an exceptional run-stopper. That is why…
Florida DL Now Has 14 Offers
Jeremy Longo is an impressive prospect. He registered 17 sacks and over 100 tackles as a junior so there's no question he gets it done on the field. Athletically, he ran a 4.69 and jumped 34 inches at a camp earlier this spring. And at 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds (he played at under 200 as a junior), Longo is excited for spring football to start. "I've been getting ready for spring, hitting the weights and conditioning," Longo said. "I had a good year last year and hopefully this one will be even better." The talented defensive end prospect has watched his offer total grow on a regular basis in recent months. "I'm up to 14 now," he said. "Some of the bigger ones are Wisconsin, South Carolina, Ole Miss, Kentucky, Arkansas, Wake Forest, Virginia, and Pittsburgh." Longo took some time recently to check two of the schools near the top of his list. "I went up to South Carolina for their spring game and had a great time," he said. "The coaches were great and I really enjoyed the area. There were 45,000 fans there. It was a good atmosphere. I also went to Wisconsin's spring game. It was pretty nice -- I like it up there. The team looks good and they have nine kids from Florida on the team so I'd feel comfortable." With 14 offers, three in-state schools are missing. What about Florida's Big 3? "They haven't offered but they're showing some interest," he said. "A lot of coaches are coming by the school (this) month to watch practice and stuff. Hopefully I'll get more offers then. I stopped by Florida on the way (to South Carolina) and talked with Urban Meyer. He's coming down for spring." Longo said he's undecided on his summer camp plans at this time and isn't ready to name a top five. "I'm focused on spring football now," he said. "I'll wait until it's over and then see who has offered me, figure out where I'm going to camps, and figure out a top five." Longo carries a 3.0 GPA inside the classroom.
