Commit of the week: ATH J.C. Jackson


J.C. Jackson earns this honor for the third time in four weeks following his stellar performance Friday.

The Under Armour All-American caught five passes for a school-record 237 yards and three touchdowns, which tied his season-high.

His efforts helped the Indians beat rival Naples, 33-27. They have now won five consecutive games after starting the season 0-2.

Jackson is committed to Florida to play cornerback, but the UF coaches may want to give him a look at receiver during fall training camp.

He has 18 receptions for 621 yards (34.5 avg.) and nine touchdowns this year. ESPN ranks Jackson as the No. 8 athlete and 78th overall prospect in the nation for the 2014 recruiting cycle.

QB Will Grier, Davidson (N.C.) Day: Fresh off his bye week, Grier threw for 279 yards and four scores in a 42-35 win over Charlotte Country Day. It was Grier’s lowest completion percentage (23-of-41) and fewest passing yards and touchdowns in a game this season. He also ran for 179 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries.

RB Dalvin Cook, Miami Central: On just six touches, Cook ran for 150 yards and three scores in a 56-6 blowout against Miami Norland. He also had three more touchdowns called back in the game.

WR Ermon Lane, Homestead: In just one quarter of play, Lane hauled in four receptions for 67 yards and a touchdown. At the end of the first period, he was ejected for allegedly throwing a punch during a pile up. Lane argued he was trying to strip the ball. The Florida High School Athletic Association is currently reviewing the incident. If it determines Lane punched a player, the punishment for fighting is a six-game suspension, which would end his senior season.

CB Chris Lammons, Fort Lauderdale Plantation: Lammons, who starts at quarterback for the Colonels, rallied his team from an 11-point halftime deficit to defeat Pompano Beach Blanche Ely, 32-26.


  1. Question for the recruiting mail stack

    What do we need to do to hold on to J.C Jackson from what I can see he’s one of the more explosive playmakers in the class. Also what can this weeks game against Mizzou do for our recruiting prestige?

  2. Based on the performance of this year’s team, what is the greatest need that if filled would have the greatest potential to improve next year’s team performance over this year’s team? What is the potential of current redshirt players to help next year’s team? What happened to Kyle Christy?

  3. This kid is a real good get. He is more a pure position player at corner than Purifoy. Hopefully we don’t hinder his development by putting him in different roles all over the place. Though that sounds good during the recruiting process, we need to focus on developing kids at specific positions and not handicap them by fomenting that ‘athlete’ mindset throughout their collegiate career.

  4. J.C Jackson is a monster at wide reciever. During his freshmen year he played atvarsity level, he was such a phenom that he earned the nickname of “superman”. For the next two years he would go head to head during practice with Mackensie Alexander a five star cornerback recruit (2012), according to espn number 5 overall and second to Vernon Hargreaves III . I know he is talented at DB and would start in most programs, but at widereciever he is an unstopable force. This past week when J.C Jackson solely beat rival Naples he went against a Florida Gator commit in Tyler Byrd. Numbers don’t lie
