That is a true statement.Sometimes it takes a JUCO kid just to have the opportunity.Sometimes they may not have had a whole lot of success in the classroom.Maybe they fall through the cracks that makes some of the recruiting sites and their "experts" very questionable to someone like me. And often. I pay as little attention as possible to a huge percentage of evaluations I read.I do my own.And I am wrong all the time. Like issues that Anoma and Alfano had for example.

And sometimes it takes these JUCO kids awhile to adjust. Just like it does almost every true 1st year player right out of HS when it becomes overwhelming to a lot of them to make the transition.

This kid's explosiveness,athleticism,speed,and physicality just jumps off the tape. And The Tide Coaches probably didnt take a minute to be blown away by Justin when he camped.Same with Malik Benson. And I am one who believes that Khyree Jackson will play a long time in the NFL.
Always remember Gene Stallings' quote when asked if UA would recruit smarter players: "It's a lot easier to teach them how to read than how to run fast." LOL. Football was once a brute force game...right now it is a speed game.

It sure is.There is no question in my mind that Justin Jefferson would be a tremendous Strong or free safety right now,and would have been recruited as one 7-10 yrs ago_Oversized guys like Ragland and T Depriest would have big problems today playing at the weight they played at. They kind of did then.

Even though it doesnt mean everything?..Whoever said "speed kills was a genius.That is why I am so high on Jermaine,Tyler Harrell,Leary,JoJo,Bond,A Anderson,and Prentice.And I can guarantee you that Shazz Preston and Kendrick Law can get it too, and THolden,Brooks,and TJ-Bell arent turtles either..Plus Gibbs is the most elite 1-cut runner in college football,and almost always will make that 1st guy miss at the LOS.In Alabama's offense healthy.He will be out in the open all the time picking them up and sitting them down.

We wont be the fastest Defense ever. But fast enough. IF we cut down on all the run fit busts we have seen lately,and all the secondary busts we have seen lately. And get guys on the ground consistently?..We will have an excellent chance to be an elite defense in todays football.
