American Heritage RB Jeremy Gaskins commits to FAU 

By Matt Porter

American Heritage senior running back Jeremy Gaskins is staying home to play his college ball.

Gaskins (5-11, 185) committed to FAU on Friday, a few days after receiving an offer from the Sun Belt school.

Gaskins was an underrated contributor to this year’s Class 3A state champions.

He was fourth among area small schools in rushing yards (1,303) and touchdowns (13) on 146 carries. He split time with star junior Greg Bryant, who rushed for 2,180 yards and 25 touchdowns on 224 carries.

As part of a three-headed rushing attack in 2010, Gaskins rushed for 825 yards and six touchdowns on 111 carries.
