Shedrick Jackson, a 3-star wide receiver from Hoover High School in Alabama and the nephew of former professional football and baseball star Bo Jackson, committed to Auburn on Monday. He ultimately chose the school over Mississippi State, Missouri, Georgia Tech and Memphis. Jackson, who stands 6'2" and weighs 198 pounds, is Scout's No. 129 wide receiver in the Class of 2018. The scouting site's John Garcia Jr. broke down Jackson's game: "Jackson is among the more complete wide receiver prospects in the South. He is well put together at about 6-2, 200 pounds, with long arms and broad shoulders. When coupled with his strong hands, he becomes a weapon even without separation from a defender. Jackson has also improved his speed as much as any prospect in the state of Alabama over the last year or so, even clocking sub 4.4 seconds in the 40-yard dash in 2017. He not only runs well, but runs efficiently, with minimal wasted movement while getting to top speed quickly. He has room to refine his short to intermediate route-running, with more precise cuts while breaking the leverage of the defender. Jackson, who is more of a deep threat than a run-after-catch threat, can use his size and strength to play more elusive in space."
