Stock rising for former Greensburg CC football standout Eubank
Jassan Eubank’s stock continues to rise.
The former Greensburg Central Catholic football standout hoped to get noticed by Division I schools while playing this season at Nassau Community College in Garden City, N.Y. His plan did not come with any guarantees, but it appears to be working.
Eubank, who transferred from Edinboro after his freshman season, just completed a successful season with Nassau. The Lions defeated Northland Community and Technical College, 46-6, in Saturday’s Red Grange Bowl in Illinois to finish 8-3.
“Yeah, for sure this is God’s work,” Eubank said of his recruiting strategy materializing. “I just had to come in here focused and do my part.”
Eubank, a 6-foot-3, 230-pound sophomore defensive lineman, had six tackles and three sacks. He finished the season with 47 tackles and 7 1 ⁄ 2 sacks.
Two days later, Mississippi Valley State offered him a scholarship. It was his second Division I offer since Halloween, when Delaware State offered.
A third offer came in Tuesday, from Bethune-Cookman.
He said he felt under-recruited coming out of GCC and felt he had something to prove.
Now, with his name out there, he has larger-scale options and a potential opportunity to make his dream come true.
Eubank plans to leave Nassau in May and transfer to a larger school. Which one remains to be seen. He does not plan to commit or sign by Dec. 19, when the NCAA early signing period begins.
“I’m taking my time,” he said. “I have a lot of schools recruiting me that haven’t offered yet so I’m being patient.”
