40 time: 4.5
From: Moreno Valley, California
High School: Rancho Verde
As a junior, Jonathan Hawkins had 90 tackles, 15 pass break-ups and one interception. Hawkins was named first team all-league. This year, through four games, he has 15 tackles, and four pass break-ups.
Hawkins is being recruited as a corner and prefers to play there. He is also seeing some time this year at free and strong safety. "I have a great break on the ball because I am good at reading receivers' hips," he says. "I like to come up on the run and hit. I actually prefer tackling over getting interceptions. I always cover the best wide receiver on the other team."
The corner and his parents currently favor Colorado (visiting this weekend), but he is also looking at Arizona, Northern Arizona, Fresno State, and Nevada. "Fresno State says they might offer after they see some senior film and I am going there for a visit on December 17th.
"I went to Arizona for a passing tournament this summer and I really liked the facilities and the staff. The weight room was also very nice. I spoke with Coach Canales last week and he just told me how impressed he was with me while I was there and that they will remain in contact with me."
Hawkins carries a 3.8 core GPA and scored a 1450 on the SAT. He would like to major in Kinesiology.
