A couple of Midwest teams have been surging on the recruiting trail lately. We take a look at their…
Cincinnati Area Standout RB Picks Miami
"Recruitment was tough at first," said the standout 5'10, 190 lb. running back who also boasted offers from Cincinnati, Kansas and Toledo. "I had a lot of options, but when I saw Miami's combination of great coaches and the great education, my instincts told me that it was the right place for me," Westbrook told RedHawk Insider.
During his junior season at Kings, Westbrook ran for 2,410 all purpose yards, catching the eye of coaches across the country. What helped Miami win him over? "Every visit I made, Coach Treadwell made time for me and my family. I didn't get that at every school," he said. Jamire's mother, Heather, works at the university and could not be more proud, saying "I'm excited. It's great to have him close to home. I won't ever have to miss a game." RedHawk fans surely appreciate the strong genetics, as Jamire's second cousin is NFL running back Brian Westbrook.
What's next for the running back that already possesses one of the best resumes in the country? "This summer I want to get better at everything. I've been working hard on catches out of the backfield, blocking, making sharper cuts and adding strength," he said. Westbrook recently ran a 4.48 second forty yard dash, but also wants to improve his speed. Lacking experience in the backfield at Miami, Westbrook's work ethic could earn him carries early in his career.
For the RedHawks, the future looks bright as Miami continues to build it's Cincinnati recruiting pipeline, now claiming five commitments from the area.
