Western Kentucky Class of 2017 Football Class: Signed ATH Jacquez Sloan

Western Kentucky Class of 2017 Football Class: Signed athlete Jacquez Sloan. WKU Insider takes a closer look at the Hilltoppers signee.


BIO:  Atlanta (Ga.) Grady athlete Jacquez Sloan has experience on both sides of the ball and in the return game.  The WKU coaches recruited him to play on either side of the ball.

RECRUITMENT: Sloan also considered Georgia State, Middle Tennessee and others prior to committing to WKU.

EVALUATION:  With 4.39 speed in the 40, the 5-foot-10, 165-pound prospect has impact speed at multiple positions, including in the return game.

QUOTABLE:  The Players I met and the coaching staff," he said of what impacted him the most.  "I just felt very comfortable."

BOTTOM LINE: As coaches often say, 'you can't coach speed.'  Sloan provides the type of breakaway speed that allows him to become a difference-maker in multiple aspects of the game.  Look for the coaches to find multiple ways to get him the ball to create big play opportunities.
