Jarvis Lee who de-committed from Virginia on Sunday told Andrew Ivins of 247 Sports that he has communicated with Auburn, Florida, Miami and North Carolina. Lee is the 886th ranked player, 82nd cornerback and 132nd in Florida in the Class of 2023. The Miami football program has only one 2023 defensive back committed.

Robert Stafford is the 138th ranked player, ninth in Florida and 33rd athlete in the Class of 2023. Miami projects Stafford as a CB. Lee is a teammate of Miami commits, offensive tackle Francis Mauigoa, edge rusher Jayden Wayne, tight end Riley Williams and offensive lineman Antonio Tripp at IMG Academy in Bradenton.

Lee is 5’11, 173 pounds and played basketball and competed in track and field at Green Cove Springs (Fla.) Clay near Jacksonville before transferring to IMG. In three seasons at Clay, Lee had 79 tackles, one tackle for loss, 14 pass breakups, seven interceptions and one fumble recovers per Max Preps.

Lee told Ivins he believes that he can play anywhere in the country. It’s clear that Lee wants to play for a school with more football tradition than Virginia. Auburn, Florida and the Miami football programs certainly fit that belief as does North Carolina to a lesser extent. Lee took his only official visit to Virginia on June 3.

Ivins also reported that Lee is also considering Florida State which he visited at the end of July. Missouri is another school to watch per Ivins. Miami has offered scholarships to 31 CBs in the class of 2023. Eight CBs Miami offered are currently uncommitted. Three of those CBs are strongly considering Miami.

Next. Miami has work to do for 2023 safety commitment. dark

Five-star CB Cormani McClain and four-stars Damari Brown and Dijon Johnson are prospects strongly considering Miami. Expect Miami to add one or two more CBs for 2023. D.J. Ivey is the only CB on the Miami roster entering his last year of eligibility in 2022. Expect Miami to lose more than Ivey.
