by Andy Hilton, recruit757
Oh my… King’s Fork has a formidable defensive line. I know that line coach Pete Gale and new arrival Coach Nick Kepa are gleeful with the line talent they’re working with at King’s Fork
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in the 757. We’ve scoured the region for talent for almost ten years now, keeping an eye on the best of the best, but also looking for opportunities to connect athlete and high school programs with college coaches. Coming in as the #10 senior prospect region-wide is King’s Ford defensive lineman Jay’ree Hardy.
#10 Jay’ree Hardy (2019 DT 6-2 290) – King’s Fork High School
Jay’ree Hardy spent the first two years of his high school career at Lakeland High School in Suffolk. In 2017, he arrived at King’s Fork and was paired with Treyshaun Mitchell. Last season, the duo combined to clog up the interior of the King’s Fork defense, so much that it forced opposing offenses to seek opportunities elsewhere. Bubble screens, wheel routes, off tackle runs, anything but a run up the gut was advisable.
This fall, both Hardy and Mitchell return, and that’s going to give opposing offensive coordinators a lot of headaches.
Last year, Hardy was a First Team All-Region 4A selection as a defensive lineman. He’s currently holding offers from Temple, ODU, Marshall, NSU, Hampton, and Campbell. If his senior year goes as expected, Hardy will have quite a list of offers to choose from. Even without additional offers, he has a very bright future ahead.
