3-star DB Jacorious JC Hart

After spending time with fellow recruits at Auburn’s Big Cat Weekend, decked in Auburn gear, 3-star defensive back recruit Jacorious “JC” Hart has released his top 4. Hart added on Twitter “commitment date dropping soon”.

Hart recently went from unranked to the No. 727 overall player in the country according to the On3 consensus ranking after impressive camp performances. The speedster from Auburn, Ala. ran blazing forty times at camps for his respective top 4 schools. While at an Auburn camp, he ran a 4.37 forty time. Soon after, he received an offer from the hometown Tigers.

Top schools

Hart will make his commitment decision between Auburn, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt, and UCF. The commitment date will be released next, but should be in the very near future.

According to sources close to his commitment, this is more than likely an Auburn – UCF battle. Hart is coming off of visits to UCF and to Auburn for its Big Cat Weekend recruiting event.

The Tigers could have a slight edge with the local star.

‘Family feel’ the key factor with Auburn

Before Hart arrived at Big Cat Weekend in Auburn, he had previously been on a visit at UCF a few days before. That visit went extremely well. Those at UCF felt as though Auburn was the leader at the start of the visit. By the time Hart left, sources close to the situation say the Knights felt as though they evened things up with the Tigers.

After a strong visit with Auburn during Big Cat Weekend, there is strong confidence in the Tigers’ camp that they are in the best shape of anyone to land Hart’s commitment.

Auburn Director of Football and Player Relations, Trovon Reed, has been a key factor in this recruitment. After his latest visit, Hart explained that he and Reed have a strong bond.

“Me and him have been talking for years–like since I was in the 9th grade,” Hart said.
