At Sunday's The Opening Dallas regional camp, only one player of the 10 who earned spots in the "Final Five" linemen matchups at event's end was not a 2018 prospect: Jayden Jernigan.
The 6-foot-2, 262-pound Jernigan started as only a sophomore for the state of Texas' largest high school, national power Allen just north of Dallas. Jernigan faces strong competition in practice and games, and that showed at Sunday's camp, where he proved his ability against some outstanding competition.
Below is a quick breakdown of what Jernigan showed at The Opening Dallas:
Jayden Jernigan was the only 2019 prospect to make the Final Five linemen matchups. The young defensive lineman is potentially position-versatile depending on scheme and has proven himself early in his high school career by earning heavy snaps for national power Allen. Jernigan played Sunday with quick hands and great initial burst. He will be heavily-recruited during the next two years.
