Jacquille Veii top two

2013 two-star cornerback Jacquille Veii has a top two in his recruitment, with the teams in his top two being Boston College and Iowa. He received an offer from BC a while ago, while his offer from Iowa came this month. He took his first visit to the Eagles a couple of days ago, and he will visit the Hawkeyes in a couple of days. His visit to Iowa City will be a crucial one, because Veii is down to two and most experts believe that Boston College has the better chance of landing him.

Jacquille Veii has also received offers from Charlotte, Ohio, Old Dominion, and Stony Brook in his recruitment. The Hawkeyes and Eagles are the only major teams to have offered him, but there are big schools out there that have shown interest in Veii Those schools include Maryland (he might camp there), Miami, Michigan State, Missouri, Penn State, Temple, Vanderbilt, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia.

The two-star Maryland recruit is a rising prospect, and that rise culminated in a big offer from Iowa that has paired with his major one from the ACC school. Veii is just under the three-star level and is one of the top 115 cornerback recruits in the 2013 class. He is also one of the top 40 recruits in the state of Maryland.

Viewed as an athlete because he can also play at running back, Jacquille Veii projects better as a cornerback. He is raw, but Veii runs a 4.49 forty yard dash and has the upside to be a quality cover corner and at least add good depth to the roster. He looks like a good fit at Boston College, and the 5’10”, 173 pound CB is a guy the Eagles will hope to land.

Moreover, it’s more difficult to find a cornerback than a running back, and athleticism plays better on defense than offense. Jacquille Veii is not only a better CB than an RB, but he also holds more value at this position. This is a two-star recruit who has much more upside at the cornerback position, because he can blossom into a solid CB at a program like BC or Iowa.
