Jae Thaxton is a member of TheInsiders.com Southern 100 Team as one of the top linebackers in the country. He battled injuries a bit last year, and the game I saw him play against Thomson was a game in which he struggled because of said injuries. Thaxton's ranking is poised for a big jump based on further evaluation when he is healthy.
Thaxton has been busy camping with his team this summer. He camped at
Presbyterian twice this summer with his team, once for football and once for
basketball. He is hoping to hit two senior camps this weekend.
"I just got back in town from our team camps," said Thaxton. "I'm
going to try and make it to Athens this weekend for Georgia's camp, but I don't
know if I can go on Friday, because I have family coming in town. I'm going to
Florida State on Sunday for their camp though. I think my Top 5 right now would
be Florida State, Georgia, Miami, LSU, and Notre Dame. I really can't say that
one is leading the other right now though; they're all pretty even."
In addition to being a standout football and basketball player, Thaxton is also
an excellent student and will have no trouble qualifying.
