One of the top cornerback recruits in the nation has two Big Ten teams on his mind.
Jordan Miner, a class of 2018 4-star cornerback and Tampa, Fla., native, posted his top 11 schools on Twitter Sunday night. Maryland and Penn State made the cut in Miner’s final list.

According to 247Sports, Miner is the 27th-best cornerback in the nation and the 48th-best prospect in the state of Florida. Although Miner has three scholarship offers from schools in Florida (Florida, South Florida and Central Florida), he lists only Florida in his top 11.
Should Miner commit to the Terrapins, he would be the third 4-star commit in Maryland’s 2018 recruiting class. However, he’d be the first defensive back commit in the Terrapins five-man recruiting class. Maryland currently has the eighth-best recruiting class in the Big Ten in the class of 2018, but a commitment from Miner surely would increase that ranking.
Penn State, carrying the top 2018 recruiting class in the Big Ten and second-best class in the nation, will have a chance to further its case for tops in the nation if Miner commits. The Nittany Lions already have a cornerback commit in Trent Gordon and a safety commit in Isaiah Humphries. Both are 3-star defensive backs.
It should be noted, however, that according to 247Sports, Miner is predicted to commit to Florida.
