    His father Kelron Sykes played linebacker at Oregon State and is a scout involved with Future Pro 5 Star Combines.

    Jashon is his uncle.

    Looks like he's got the build to eventually play tight end, according to his dad.

    Looks like he is at Chandler High now. We have a solid relationship with that school...

    This is a big one for us, not to understate it.

    Can definitely tell he and Jayshon are related. I would have thought it was Jayshon's son not his nephew

    I agree. Coaches need a full court press starting with Jayshon.

    If we don't get this one I'll be pissed because I see the rest of the P12 pulling down gems because of their great uncle or some ****. I'd say playing for uncle way better then most other relatives.

    I may be missing something here... He's got a good lineup of offers. But I'm not seeing elite talent in that film. Are his stats pretty good for a sophomore? Is this a case of bloodline recruiting?

    You know he's a freshman in the film you're watching, right?

    It says he's a sophomore. The sound track also states over and over that "bitch better have my money". Maybe that's why these schools are offering?

    So... His film is of him as a sophomore... He'll be a Junior this year and a Senior in 2014.

    Please tell me you're not getting semi-upset over the music.

    But CVille, he'll be a junior this fall.

    I'm not upset or semi-upset. But I think there are better choices. I also may not have been offered by CU because I sent them a VHS with nothing but silence and static.

    I know that, not sure where I ever remotely implied otherwise. The point was the film was of him as a rising sophomore.

    I saw a tweet a couple days ago from a recruiting guru saying that Dionte was on the verge of committing to CU (cant remember the source). However this was before the firing of D-3 Jon so things might have changed. He's also been given a 4-star rating by 247 Sports.

    I'm pretty sure that young Mr. Sykes may be moving on at this point.

    He may be but the next staff cannot ignore Arizona specifically the Phoenix area.
