From this past weekend's TJBlog "Eight Great Army Combine-ations" ...
Shining a focus on:
TJB's "Sur-prise of the Combine" ... U-M assistant Fred Jackson's son, wide receiver Jeremy Jackson.
Only a sophomore, Jeremy has gotten through puberty and transformed into a mature well-spoken young man ... and physically he's got his coordination in a man's body now ... a 6-2+, 185+ pound body.
He showed good speed (he didn't run a 40), he's smooth, and he got up and snagged the ball with his long, looong arms.
Suddenly -- this kid is an Arrington-clone at the same age (Adrian was also a long, lanky, thin WR with long arms and good speed who was willing to go up for the ball - even when he didn't quite have the strength to really fight it away from anyone).
Jeremy IMO was one of the top 10 WRs - easily - at the combine. Was the the top sophomore WR?
*MORE* He already had a U-M offer from Lloyd Carr, and Coach Rod has reiterated that. However, with his father being from Louisiana, Jeremy has always had a big-time love for the South. To that end, he hopes to attend the Texas Camp this summer. Also, Les Miles at LSU has already told him a scholarship would be there for him. And also, Florida has already given him an invite to their Friday Night Lights camp this summer.
It looks like the Wolverines will have to fight off the whole Deep South for Jeremy.
