Cedar Creek Football Star Picks Up Another Division I Offer
Cedar Creek sure has had a tremendous track record of producing Division I football players and this season is no different.
Wide receiver JoJo Bermudez is the latest Pirate getting Division I coaches attention, receiving a offer to play football for the University of Vanderbilt in the SEC.
The 5-foot-10, 165-pound Bermudez committed to Rutgers in early November, but recently decommitted from the Scarlet Knights program, where former Cedar Creek stars Max and Bo Melton play.
"First off I want to thank God for allowing me to be in a position to live out my dreams and work for a future that I want," he said via twitter. "I would like to thank (assistant) coach Fran (Brown) coach Wood (receivers coach Tiquan Underwood) and coach (Greg) Schiano for believing in me. I believe in their vision for Rutgers and what they are doing with the program. With that said, I feel it is best for me to open recruiting back up so I can make 100% sure I’m making the best decision for myself, my family and my future.
He has had a dynamic senior season, breaking two CAL records for career receptions and career receiving yards, and has already scored on offense, defense and on special teams this season.
