Scout Evaluation

D'Shawn Jamison is an aggressive defensive back prospect who pairs cornerback size with safety mentality. Primarily played safety and nickel as a sophomore, when he also occasionally lined up as a linebacker. Undersized for those positions, but frame potential is adequate for cornerback as he projects to college. Sound tackler who will both wrap up and provide the big hit. Outstanding athleticism with laser-verified 4.48 speed in the 40, a blistering 3.90-second shuttle, and an almost 37-inch vertical. Good pass-rusher in blitzing situations. Excellent closing speed in downhill pursuit as well as chase-and-tackle situations. Bigger receivers could be a problem once Jamison moves full-time to corner, but physical nature and leaping ability will help him. Will need to acclimate to coverages as a full-time corner since much of his experience so far is at other spots in the back seven. However, Jamison has a lot of potential thanks to rare athleticism and a willingness to mix it up with anybody. He will be a Power Five-caliber recruit and possibly one of the top DB's in TXHSFB. -- Gabe Brooks
