Signing Day Spotlight

Jalen Reagor, Receiver, Waxahachie (Texas)

Size: 6-0, 182

Recruiting: A Texas Tech legacy, Reagor pledged early in his recruitment to the Red Raiders, but decommitted in the spring and was a longtime Oklahoma pledge. That relationship ran its course as well, leading to Reagor flipping in October to TCU. He garnered numerous offers nationally, including Alabama, Arkansas, Baylor, Florida State, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M, Utah, and Washington, among others.

Rankings: Scout ranks Reagor as the No. 2 receiver in the state of Texas, behind only Omar Manning, a fellow TCU pledge. Reagor is the No. 12 receiver nationally and the No. 82 overall prospect in the 2017 Scout 300.

Stats

HIGH SCHOOL CAREER: Reagor finished his three-year varsity career at Texas Class 5A-level Waxahachie High School with 123 receptions for 2,253 yards and 28 touchdowns on 18.3 yards per catch. His rushing yardage during his senior campaign gave him a total of 2,473 yards from scrimmage and 31 offensive TD's during his high school career.

2016: As a senior, Reagor accounted for 1,228 yards from scrimmage and 17 total touchdowns. He caught 52 passes for 1,008 yards and 14 touchdowns on almost 20 yards per reception, while rushing for 220 yards and three TD's on 11.0 yards per carry.

2015: Reagor enjoyed a breakout junior season that included 64 receptions for 1,108 yards and 13 touchdowns on 17.3 yards per catch. He also ran 11 times for 81 yards and scored twice on punt returns.

2014: As a sophomore, Reagor caught seven passes for 137 yards and one touchdown.

Senior highlights

Evaluation notes

Reagor is a speedy receiver prospect who can play outside or in the slot. He is a lethal downfield threat because of quickness off the line and his top-end speed, which has been laser-timed at 4.41 seconds in the 40. He flashes impressive acceleration off a dead stop, as well as after downshifting.

Reagor is a home run threat over the top and as a run-after-catch playmaker. He's slippery in close quarters and possesses excellent cutback ability. Reagor's foot quickness lends to solid route-running that should get only better in college. He's a good leaper who high-points the ball to win over DB's as needed.

There's a lack of ideal bulk, but Reagor has the frame length to add weight, which will also help his development as a perimeter run-blocker.

Overall, Jalen Reagor is one of the very best receivers in a loaded Texas high school football senior class at the position. - Gabe Brooks
