U.S. Army All-American Football Bowl/Jacory Harris/And a chat with Etienne Sabino

I caught up with Etienne Sabino after his live commitment to Ohio State University Thursday night. Here's a quick chat with Krop's monster linebacker, who is rated the top inside linebacker in the country by Rivals.com.

Q: You had over 40 scholarship offers, what separated Ohio State from the rest of the pack and who were you seriously considering before you made your choice?

A: It came down to Ohio St. and USC. I attended a camp at Ohio State recently and earned camp MVP honors and that's what really did it for me. They were my last  official visit and I knew that's where my heart was. The atmosphere was great.

Q: What does their linebacker situation look like for next season?

A: I know they have 1 starter graduating and could have 2 others leave early to the NFL, so once I go in there and start working hard, I know I'll have a chance to crack the lineup quickly.

Q: When did you take your visit?

A: I was there during the Michigan State game. It's an incredible experience on the field during one of their games. I can't wait to be a part of it.

Q: How were the people in Columbus, Ohio like?

A: They live for that team. They're very knowledgable. They recognized me a few times on campus. They must have looked me up on the internet. They were like "Hey, that's Sabino."

Sabino and fellow Krop defensive back Travis Howard have each committed to Ohio State.

US ARMY ALL-AMERICAN BOWL

At least three big time Miami-Dade County football recruits will be selected to the US Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio this coming week.

I'll give you guys hints.

Two of the three are committed to UM, and they all play defense.

JACORY CHASING HISTORY

I spoke to Jacory Harris for a while on the sidelines at the Soul Bowl. He is playing with a glove on his hand to protect a hairline fracture he suffered when he took a shot from Hialeah stud defensive lineman Corey Liujet.

Harris threw three touchdowns and ran for another. I'll take an injured Harris over anyone UM has right now. Between Robert Marve and Jacory, QB "U" is on the way back.

Harris has 32 touchdowns, which is a new regular season record for a Miami-Dade County quarterback, breaking the 23 he threw last year. He is on pace to break his overall county season mark of 37, and is on pace to tie Marve's state record 48 TD passes. Both of them on the same team...  Canes' fans, as an alum of the U, I can barely wait either.

I WOULD LOVE TO SEE JACORY HARIS BREAK THE COUNTY AND STATE RECORDS. ANYTIME I HAVE SEEN HIM ON TELEVISION OR QUOTED IN THE NEWSPAPER. HE IS A CLASS ACT. THOSE ARE THE TYPE OF INDIVIDUALS I LOVE TO SEE WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS AND BREAK RECORDS. . HE AND NORTHWESTERN DISPLAY INTEGRITY. HE WOULD HAVE LONG BROKE THIS RECORD. KEEP IN MIND. HE THREW FOR SIX TOUCHDOWNS IN ONE GAME IN A LITTLE MORE THAN A HALF BEFORE GOING TO THE BENCH. LOOK AT THE SCORES OF NORTHWESTERN AND BELIEVE ME IF THEY WOULD HAVE KEPT HIM IN THE GAME, THOSE RECORDS WOULD BE HISTORY. ISN 'T LIFE STRANGE. LAST YEAR NORTHWESTERN WASN'T EVEN NUMBER ONE IN THE NATION BUT DUE TO SOME NEGATIVITY THEY STAYED IN THE NEWS. THIS YEAR THEY ARE NUMBER ONE IN THE NATION AND IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW IT. YOU WOULD NOT KNOW IT. DADECOUNTY HAS A CHANCE TO MAKE HISTORY. DON'T LET IT PASS BY.I MADE HISTORY BY GOING TO THAT GAME IN DALLAS TEXAS AND NOBODY, ABSOLUTELY NOBODY CAN TAKE THAT FROM ME.( WHAT A FEELING OF EUPHORIA) PSALMS 100 PSALMS 1 EXODUS 33:19

CJ

he should hurry up and get to the U... fiu's qb would have at least made it competative... hell, id take the OB janitor over the QB's they have now...

Charvas L. Coley

Jacory is a stud and he has the right attitude to take over the horrible Qb position @ The U. But I think marve might put up some crazy numbers in the spring. I am really intrigued by smith & cook as well. There will be alot of competition this year and the receivers better get the stick'em out cuz balls will be flying.

Well back to jacory, he is a stud and his love for the U is unmistakeable. He is green and orange from the feet up. I can't wait. I can't wait honestly.


I am all the way in Arizona and don't miss a game, but I am so tired of the losses. The summer time can't come fast enough.

To all UM recruits... keep the faith and keep it real,... we need yah!

Give Me a Good Offense, a Badass Defense and a Ugly win.

Jacory... If reading this.

Alot is centered around you... do what you got to do and win the nationals and keep on recruiting.

Do what you can to bring in Arthur Brown... OLB, rated #1 and has a 90 grade... considering Miami 1 of 6 schools.... we need him as bookends with... R Buchanan #2, J.Futch #5, M Robinson #7... all top 10 by Tracker 150's best OLB.

All 4 would be great contributers on defense as OLB, ILB, CB or safties!
