The Auburn Tigers have offered 2014 pro-style quarterback Jacob Park to give the South Carolina QB his first offer. It’s a big way to get a first offer, as Park was offered by an SEC squad no less and is the top quarterback in the state in this class.
Jacob Park has interest from Alabama, Arkansas, Clemson, Tennessee, South Carolina, Florida, and Georgia. He took visits to Tennessee and Auburn in June and came away impressed by his visit to the Tigers campus. Steve Spurrier Jr. is trying to bring in the in-state QB catch to the Gamecocks program.
For Stratford High last season, Park threw seven touchdowns and ran for another seven. He is one of the top QBs in the region and one of the big recruits in the state of South Carolina, so the Gamecocks will be looking to add him.
Auburn has viewed Jacob Park as one of their top targets in the 2014 class, so the offer for the 6’4″, 220 pound QB comes as no surprise. The coaches really like him, and it has been Scott Loeffler who is trying to bring Park to the program.
The most appealing thing about Park is his strength, and he might have one of the strongest arms of any quarterback in the 2014 class. While he needs to work on his technique, he has all the physical tools to be a solid pro-style passer at the collegiate level. He has a 3.82 GPA, and the Goose Creek QB owns a 4.48 shuttle time and a 26-inch vertical.
Georgia and Auburn are the two SEC teams most heavily in the mix for Jacob Park early on in his recruitment. He’s a top QB target in the region, and a few SEC teams are certainly showing some heavy interest in him. Park is a smart QB who doesn’t make poor decisions often, and Auburn is in a good position early on and the staff likes what they see in him.
