The Opening Preview: Malik Jefferson
7v7 Team: Apocalypse
HT: 6'3 | WT: 225
Recruiting: Jefferson is an elite recruit with elite school options. Has official visits planned for Stanford, UCLA and Ohio State as well as considering schools such as Alabama, Baylor, Texas Tech, TCU, Oklahoma, Texas and Texas A&M.
Scouting Report: Makes a ton of plays behind the line of scrimmage. He has a long, athletic frame, but is ripped. Still has room to add some more size, which makes his physique potential even more impressive. He uses his hands well when needed to get off his blocks and has tremendous closing speed in the open field. He gets off the ball quickly and a fast first step gives him and advantage. Finishes well and rarely does a back get away after he makes contact.
At Stake: Lots at stake for the No. 1 rated Midlands prospect and the No. 2 rated recruit overall. He should be in the Sparq championship discussion. As much pressure as there is on many of these recruits, you can guarantee Jefferson will attack the camp with a positive outlook.
