Profiling Chevis Jackson

One of the states elite receiver prospects who is getting strong attention from several major schools, Mobile's Chevis Jackson is a two-way threat.

Chevis Jackson (6-1, 180, 4.50) is a complete receiver who catches well with his hands, runs precise routes, and gets separation from the defender on deep patterns. Jackson is also receiving strong attention due to his talent in the secondary.

The pride of St. Pauls High School in Mobile, Alabama, Jackson electrified the crowd last season with 45 receptions for 850 yards and nine touchdowns as a junior. He also returned 16 kickoffs for 415 yards, which is an average of 25.9 yards per return. He had 13 punt returns for 80 yards, which works out to a 6.15 yard average.

Defensively, Jackson had 39 tackles, four caused fumbles, and two picks. He has several schools that are strongly considering him in the secondary instead of receiver, including LSU.

"LSU wants me at defensive back, and everyone else wants me at wide receiver," Jackson told last April. "It doesn't really matter to me which side of the ball I play on. LSU is my favorite team right now. I also like Alabama."

His great junior year landed him on the All County and All State first teams.

Jackson plans to camp at LSU and Alabama (June 21st). Those schools lead South Carolina, Arkansas, and Louisville. But Jackson recently told's Scott Kennedy that LSU is his leader. Jackson claims scholarship offers from LSU, Alabama and South Carolina.

The Mobile native bench presses 255 pounds and squats 365. He has a 2.3 GPA and scored 19 on the ACT.
