Recruiting: Tigers Battling Seminoles and Gators for Linebacker

by -

Javier Estopinan Linebacker South Miami Senior High School (Miami, Fla.) 6'3", 230 lbs. Although South Miami finished the season with a 5-5 record and didn't qualify for the state playoffs, Estopinan finished his high school career in impressive fashion. He had 112 tackles, 22 tackles for a loss, five sacks, three forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries. Estopinan's strong play has earned him offers from Clemson, N.C. State, Florida State, Ohio State, and Florida. Although he currently lists Clemson as a fifth choice, he said that could change when he makes his official visit on January 23rd. "I wouldn't say that Clemson is out of the running because I haven't been there yet," Estopinan said. "I also will visit Florida on January 16th, and will probably make my decision a week or so after my Clemson visit." Estopinan has been visited at his home by coaches from Florida, N.C. State, Ohio State, and Clemson's Ron West.
