    44 catches for 814 yards (18.5 avg). 13 of those catches went for touchdowns. http://www.maxpreps.com/athletes/ewMPJ4WfJ0Ot-Kwv7E1eKA/football-fall-10/stats-alex-jackson.htm

    Also ran a 22.5 in the 200m, so it's clear that his reported 40 time isn't out of whack. http://dyestat.rise.espn.go.com/search.jsp?sort_type=event&eventSearch=null&athID=189904

    Hmmm. The $50,000 question: Do I base my opinion on offer list or star rating? :wink2:

    Let's go to the film.

    Speed. Good quickness. Speed. Like his open field vision. Speed. Better than expected route running. Speed. Surprisingly difficult to tackle. Speed. Makes some difficult catches. Speed.

    If we have room, this is a good candidate to bring in as an athlete. Give him a shot as a return man and figure out whether he fits best as a WR, all-purpose back or CB.

    You forgot the other option: base it on how he'd perform with superior coaching in the WAC. :smile2:

    Same league as Cameron Countryman. I like both of them quite a bit and I think the toughness of their league is being sold short. It's obviously not top tier California football, but it's not terrible either.

    Not only the same league, but Beverly Hills and Culver City are rivals the way CU and CSU are. They hate each other. Interesting that we've offered each's top WR.

    We are in his top five (I think we take one more WR):

    Whereas ASU, at least so far in this class, seems pretty loaded at the WR position.

    Well apparently ESPN and Scout disagree somewhat on the rankings on this one.

    ESPN: 79 grade, 4*, #37 WR overall.

    Scout: 2*, #170 WR overall.

    I'm probably in the minority, but I have a higher regard for espin recruit evals than I do of Scouts. Scout just seems so paying-fan-centric that it's lost its credibility with me.

    Rivals is the most accurate, imo. The rating system seems to be a good gauge of the individuals potential.

    It seems all of the services are hit and miss imo. Obviously there will rarely be unanimous agreement, but it does crack me up how differently they see prospects sometimes. This would be one of those cases. Did Scout even bother to watch Jackson's film? Who knows.

    Not sure if our coaches were still after him, but I think he's someone to keep an eye on in the coming years. Looks extremely fast in his highlights. Would have been fun to watch him and Gerald Thomas playing together.
