Greer High School’s Raheim Jeter is without a doubt one of the top quarterback prospects in the South.
The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Jeter, from Spartanburg, SC, already holds Division I offers from Memphis, Missouri, Auburn, South Carolina, Georgia, UNC Charlotte and Virginia Tech.
So it comes as no surprise that Youth1 has recognized Jeter as a member of its Freshman450. However, the modest Jeter is extremely grateful to be selected to the national list.
“It feels great to be recognized by such a prestigious youth media network,” Jeter said. “Truly an honor.”
Jeter says being a part of the Freshman450 is validation of the grinding he’s been doing to develop his skills.
“It just goes to show the work I put in,” Jeter said.
Jeter is the consummate signal caller. Jeter truly embraces what it means to be the quarterback of a football team.
“I love being able to have control and lead my team,” Jeter said.
Jeter uses football as an outlet to express himself in a positive way. The game of football alleviates Jeter of any stress he’s dealing with in the outside world.
“I love being able to release built up anger,” Jeter said.
Jeter describes the strengths of his game as a quarterback. Jeter has excellent football IQ that serves him well with decision making.
“Being able to stand in the pocket, process, read a defense and deliver,” Jeter said.
Jeter lists the parts of his game that he still wants to improve.
“I want to work on my speed and consistency,” Jeter said.
Jeter’s most fulfilling accomplishment is engineering an upset that few foresaw.
“Coming into the playoffs as the lowest seed only to beat the No. 1 seed,” Jeter said.
Jeter tries to mirror his game after this NFL MVP quarterback.
“I look up to Cam Newton,” Jeter said. “He’s always been one of favorite players ever since he came into the league. Just the way he plays and carries himself is awesome.”
Even though Jeter has a handful of offers already from Division I programs, he’s patiently going to let the process play itself out.
“They mean a lot to me,” Jeter said. “I really haven’t made a list of my top schools or really put much thought into it. Around the spring of my junior year is when I’ll really sit down and weigh what every school has to offer for me.”
Jeter intends to stay active in the offseason to further hone his game.
“I’ll be doing spring ball with my school and I’ll be going around to some college camps,” Jeter said.
Jeter lists what he wants to work on so he can take his game to the next level.
“Definitely my speed and fundamentals,” Jeter said.
Jeter believes the sky is the limit for what he can achieve in his budding football career.
“I feel like I’m progressing very well,” Jeter said. “Putting in work to get better every day.”
