While we mentioned earlier that the Jets are bringing in Eric Crocker for a workout, we now have another name… Akiel Belfon.
After finding out the Jets were bringing Belfon in, I asked Bent what he knew about this kid. Here’s what he told me:
He went to College of Mount St. Joseph. If you google him, you’ll see he has some success as a track athlete (sprinter). He was on the football team roster as a freshman WR in 2010 – listed at 5-10, 185 – but I can’t find any information about him recording any stats or being on the team in 2011 or 2012, so he may not have played.
In high school, he played DB and WR.
Here’s his highlight video:
Belfon will be working out for the Jets on Friday.
We wish him nothing but success as he gets ready to impress the Jets coaching staff.
