Houston, Kansas, Rice, SMU, Texas State, Texas-San Antonio, and Utah State are a few schools to extend a verbal scholarship offer to Jaylon Mascorro. He does a little bit of everything for Refugio.
Mascorro is at the top of the charts in 15-2A in yards rushing and touchdowns. Mascorro has 135 carries for 1,280 yards and 21 touchdowns. He also has three touchdown passes, ten catches for 126 yards and over 70 tackles from the linebacker position.
“I believe I am underrated because of my classification,” Jaylon Mascorro said. “But there’s nothing I can do about that. I’ve been playing running back and outside linebacker. I feel I am progressing and getting better week by week. I need to work on reading a bit more, and I Need to work on my quickness. We are 9-1 going in as the number 3 seed in the playoffs.”
Mascorro hasn’t been speaking with college coaches. He will try and focus on recruiting after the season is finished. He attended Texas camp and worked out at the quarterback position.
“Longhorns are really talented and have impressed me this year,” Mascorro said. “I am picking them to win Saturday.”
Plays for a small school, but has seriously big talent. As a runner, he is very physical and punishing against the level of competition he faces, but will want to take fewer shots as he transitions into college. He is a bit raw as a passer at times but has all of the tools in place. He has a really big arm and can stretch the field. He is a competitor and a leader which is something that is easily apparent early on when watching him play. - Greg Powers
