Commit of the week: ATH J.C. Jackson


After putting up 298 all-purpose yards last week, J.C. Jackson came up big again for Immokalee Friday night.

Jackson finished with five receptions for 123 yards and two touchdowns en route to a 67-7 drumming of Naples Golden Gate. He also made four tackles on defense.

Despite catching passes in just four of Immokalee’s six games this season, Jackson leads the team with 384 receiving yards and six touchdowns on 13 receptions. That’s an average of 30 yards per catch.

Jackson had his Under Armour All-American selection ceremony last week at his school. He will be one of four UF commits in the game on Jan. 2.

Here are some other UF pledges who performed well last week:

RB Dalvin Cook, Miami Central: Cook scored two rushing touchdowns in a 37-20 win over Homestead, but he rushed for just 60 yards. That, however, was by design. His coaches had him at defensive back covering receiver Ermon Lane for the game. Cook limited his fellow Florida commit to just three catches for 31 yards, and he also made an interception on a fade pass thrown to Lane in the end zone.

CB Duke Dawson, Cross City Dixie County: Dawson only recorded two tackles against Class 1A’s top-ranked school, Dixie County, but his coverage skills took away one side of the field and helped the Bears go to 4-0 on the season with a 30-12 victory. The win snapped a six-game losing streak to the Tigers and handed them their first regular-season loss in District 7 in two years.

CB Chris Lammons, Fort Lauderdale Plantation: Lammons rushed for a pair of touchdowns in a 56-14 win over Hollywood Hills.

CB Quincy Wilson, Fort Lauderdale University School: Wilson made an interception for the second week in a row, bringing his season total to five. The Suns defeated Coconut Creek North Broward Prep 56-0, their third consecutive shutout victory.


  1. Talent isn’t measured by the school. ESPN ranks Kevin #1 in the nation at RB. I remember when Percy was at Florida. He not going to be that good, he coming from a 3A school. He from Virginia so remember your history. Fumbling the ball in a big time game like Matt Jones did against Miami and no one is talking about that. Mistakes are going to happen don’t play politic with football. ESPN didn’t think Matt Jones was better then Kevin. If Will Muschamp didn’t want to play Kevin why did he recruit him so hard? Come to FSU Kevin we play everyone. One RB want carry the ball 20 times for 47 yards. Everyone has a job at RB.

  2. Spoken like a true FSU fan. His name is KELVIN, not KEVIN. He is a Gator through and through and although it is tough for him to watch from the sidelines, he is a Gator legacy and knows he will shine when his number is called, just like his Daddy.

  3. Zach, what was Grier’s stats? or did he have a bye week? Trying to keep up with his stats. So far they’re pretty darn impressive and I like to throw them in FSU fans’ faces when they start talking about Hameis dominating the next 4 years. Hey at least Grier is on a high school team playing against high schools rather than on a college team playing against High schools! haha

  4. Zach, a couple questions for the mailbad tmrw.

    Any news on Cook? still solid despite other visits, and apparently saying he’ll ‘decide’ by where he’s most comfortable?

    Tre williams, is he a legit options at LB? we need one in this class bad; do we land one or more of williams, garrett, mcmillan?
