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.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.
