The 5'10, 178-pound athlete from the St. Louis area is reportedly being recruited as a defensive back or slot WR for Mizzou's 2016 recruiting class.
Kirkwood's Jerod Alton says Missouri is recruiting him as an athlete, slot WR or cornerback. He prefers WR but will play either.— Dave Matter (@Dave_Matter) August 5, 2015
Playing as a running back, he seems to have solid speed and vision. Rivals just re-ranked him as 5.5 3* athlete and it appears his coaches tried to get him the ball as many ways as possible, including kick returns, wide receiver, and defense.
His chief recruiter is Cornell Ford.
Welcome, Jerod. Your reservations have been made.
