Top 2013 cornerback recruit Vernon Hargreaves III has offers from national powers coast to coast—and rightfully so. 

The nation’s No. 5-ranked player by 247Sports has been given the nickname “Freeze” for his ability to lock down his side of the field.

The Tampa, Fla. corner remains uncommitted, but two Sunshine State schools are the favorites, according to 247Sports’ National Recruiting Director JC Shurburtt. 

Watch to see why Florida and South Florida lead the pack for Hargreaves and what might be USF’s secret weapon to land the 5-star corner.

Bleacher Report’s Michael Felder joins Shurburtt to break down the elite defensive back. Tune in to hear what makes the 5’11”, 180-pound cornerback the best in this year’s class.
