It’s only the first day of practice, but two future Cats have already caught the attention from scouts.
Josh Helmholdt of Rivals believes the stock is soaring for Landon Young and Drake Jackson. The highest praise was saved for Landon Young, who has looked as good as anybody during Day One drills.
“There may not be a better looking prospect on either team. He has a huge frame and has room to add some positive weight. During drills he was light on his feet, showed a very strong punch, and played with strong technique. He was able to handle the speed and power the best of all the West linemen on Day 1.”
Drake made his presence felt on the field, sliding in at #9 on the Top Ten list. He was described as a bulldog center and a relentless blocker. It’s not a surprise to us, but it’s nice to see he’s already surprising people.
