Jeoffrey Pagan is enjoying the US Army All-American experience even though an injury will keep him from playing this week.
How is your knee doing?
“It is coming along well. It is coming along a lot better than the doctors projected. I am coming along a lot faster. I am getting stronger and getting my knee back,” said Pagan.
What is the expected recovery time?
“They didn’t really give me an expected recovery time. They told me that I should be jogging in three months and I should be back on the field by the summer,” replied Pagan.
Who is recruiting the All-American the hardest right now?
“I would probably say Georgia and Bama and Clemson,” replied Pagan.
At one time the North Carolina standout was committed to Florida. Are they still a possibility?
“Yeah they are still a possibility. I will have to get down there for my official and check things out,” replied Pagan.
Jeoffrey said he may visit Florida on the 28th. Right now only one official visit is scheduled.
“I have one scheduled to Clemson on the 15th,” said Pagan.
What does the top defensive end like about the Tigers?
“I like how close it is. I like coach Brooks. He is a great guy and a great coach. I would like to play for him if that is where it takes me,” replied Pagan.
Do the coaching changes at Clemson impact things?
“A little bit. I know coach Rumph left and went to Alabama. I was told that coach Brooks was going to take over all of the defensive ends. It really kind of worked itself together,” replied Pagan.
Jeoffrey said that he and All-American teammate Ray Drew have talked about playing together.
