The Titans always knew what they had in starting offensive lineman Jeremy Singleton. The Trinity Episcopal product is a stout offensive lineman that has had no problem answering the call for his school, especially over the course of the last few seasons.
It was only a matter of time until collegiate programs began to extend their recruiting map towards the part of Richmond where Trinity Episcopal resides yet again. It started back in December after the conclusion of the season for Jeremy. William and Mary went searching for an offensive lineman to help bolster its unit heading into the 2020 camp. However, it continued with a multiple of visits and colleges extending its arms in the direction of Jeremy Singleton.
On Tuesday evening, Jeremy made it clear what his aspirations would be at the conclusion of the regular season by announcing that Richmond would be the program he wished to spend the next two to four years. The TES prospect has developed a close relationship with the Spiders coaching staff which started with a visit back in April of 2017.
“I feel great,” Jeremy told recruit804. “Now I can just focus on my senior season.”
The apparent goal all along has been to make an announcement prior to the start of the regular season. Richmond came through and served Jeremy with an offer back in February. He followed through with another visit back in April which further solidified himself with the campus and feeling comfortable with his now future surroundings.
However, it wasn’t just Richmond attempting to court Jeremy. He also held offers from: William and Mary, VMI, Bryant, and Fordham. Jeremy provided equal attention to every program he visited including Virginia, Wake Forest, North Carolina, Penn State, NC State, and Virginia Tech among others.
He’ll now follow in the footsteps of his older brother Foster who picked up an offer from Richmond in January of 2018. Not even a week later, Foster committed to Richmond and was ready to suit up in a Spiders uniform. With the two elder Singleton’s already taken off the board in subsequent years, it’ll be the twins (Chris and Sam) that will get to showcase their dominance over the next few years. Both are 2022 prospects and have a few more seasons under their belt before they get to the level of older brothers Foster and Jeremy.
