2018 WR Shedrick Jackson Burns Up Auburn Camp

Hoover wide receiver Shedrick Jackson had a monster day on Saturday at Auburn's camp.

Hoover, Ala.--Already with an offer from the Auburn Tigers, talented 2018 wide receiver Shedrick Jackson showed up on the Plains ready to make a statement.

Mission accomplished.

Measuring in at 193 pounds at 6-1, Jackson was timed at better than 4.4 seconds in the 40-yard dash by every watch, including a best time of 4.31. Throw in a vertical leap of 40 inches and a broad jump of 10 feet, 11 inches and you have a dominating performance from the Hoover standout.

“I feel like I came out and did some good stuff,” Jackson said. “I just wanted to come out and get better and compete. It was just like any normal Hoover workout, come out and do what I do.

“It was huge,” he added of his numbers. “You come out here, you’ve got to get the momentum going. You have to get the juices going and when you do something like that it makes you feel great, confident to do what you’ve got to do the rest of the day.”

Working with Auburn wide receiver Coach Kodi Burns as well as Coach Gus Malzahn, Jackson said it was a great experience and he got some good feedback from his day with them.

“It was great,” Jackson said. “It was the first time I have come down and worked with Kodi. I have never been to a camp before. It was good to get some work with him to see what it was like and what the tempo was like and how they are coaching on the field.

“It was great to see what he was like on the field,” he added. “I have attended practices, but until you get on the field with him and him talking and giving you input, that’s what it’s about.”

With a decision likely coming soon via a twitter video, Jackson said he doesn’t have a public leader, but Auburn has plenty of positives going at the moment with a lot of love from Malzahn being one of the most important things.

“It was great,” Jackson said. “Learning from the man himself. Watching him back when I was in the eighth grade and ninth grade coming up, with the stuff he does is just great.”
