After dealing with injuries in the first two weeks of his senior season, Kalif Jackson is hauling in touchdowns passes and has his team riding a two-game winning streak.

The Florida wide receiver commitment made two touchdown catches — both in the red zone — in Neptune Fletcher’s 56-14 victory over Jacksonville Creekside on Friday.

Jackson also caught an 18-yard TD in last week’s win and now has four scores on the year.

His production is good news for the Gators, as they plan to utilize the 6-foot-4, 200-pound pass catcher as a weapon in the red zone.

Jackson, one of Florida’s most recent commits, impressed the coaching staff at Friday Night Lights on July 25 and pledged to UF as soon as he earned an offer four days later.

QB Sheriron Jones, Moreno Valley (Calif.) Rancho Verde: With Florida offensive coordinator Kurt Roper in attendance, Jones rebounded from his two-pick performance last week and threw for 348 yards and three touchdowns on 15-of-17 passing in Friday’s 56-21 win over Hemet West Valley. He also rushed for a score. Jones has 1,338 yards passing and 16 total touchdowns through five games this season.

ATH Derrick Dillon, Franklinton (La.) Pine: Dillon scored twice and totaled 197 yards of offense in his team’s 42-28 victory over Covington (La.) Archbishop Hannan. He has accounted for 965 total yards and 11 touchdowns in four games played.

  1. I’m telling you all-the young man to keep an eye on is Derrick Dillon. I think he & Sherion Jones will be the jewels of the class once it’s all said and done. Those dudes can ball!!! GO GATORS!!!

  2. Jones needs two years in college to get his fundamentals wright. Dillon is a interesting Athlete that will need a red-shirt year to find himself. Jackson looks like he will get back up reps right away as a freshmen.

  3. You mean those over-rated LAC 12 L.A. Losers will get him??? (snicker)

    Jones will be behind 2 other QB’s that are at least as good as he is.
    How those three – Grier, Harris, Jones, shake out then is yet to be seen. The same is true for any position incoming Fr.
