Video: Farrell Shelton Discusses Jerod Alton

Hear what Jerod Alton's high school football coach had to say about the Missouri signee.

KIRKWOOD, Mo. — Kirkwood High School football coach Farrell Shelton had plenty of opportunities to see the explosiveness of University of Missouri signee Jerod Alton during the cornerback's senior season. 

That, the coach said, is what the Tigers are getting with Alton.

"At our level, very very explosive," Shelton said. "I think the on-field tangibles are there to see about his explosiveness. I think what really separates a Jerod from others is his second-step explosion, but that's something that's gonna be common in the SEC."
