While you can find out just so much about watching film on an athlete or talking to him on the phone, there is a major advantage to seeing the athlete live. I have been fortunate to see more high school football players in person in the state of Florida than any other source. What I will do is use my 30 plus years of evaluating talent on the football field to give up a complete opinion on the top football players in the Class of 2004. I hope you enjoy this rare look into the football players in the state from a first-hand. LIVE vantage point:
PLAYER: Kyle Jackson
SCHOOL: Neptune Beach Fletcher.
www.floridakids.us PRE-SUMMER RATING: 16.
THE SCOOP ON THIS FLORIDA KID: When Ciatrick Fason left for the University of Florida two years ago, many felt that there would never be anyone like him. Not at the same school.
Before I start comparing anyone to one of the state's most productive players ever, I will tell you that watching Kyle for two years, he has a knack of doing some amazing things.
EVALUATION: Even though he can run with the ball and make some nice catches, there's a feeling that safety or corner back could be in this talented young man's future. But when colleges tell me what they like most about him, there are many ways they see him, which gives me the indication that he is as gifted on offense as he is on the defensive side of the ball.
THE INSIDE STORY: This is another one of those young men that people rave about on and off of the playing field. His ability to create and make things happen has everyone still focused on this Jacksonville suburb.
RECRUITING EVALUATION: Kyle Jackson
