If you don’t know the name Jabrill Peppers by now, you certainly will by the end of the 2014 season. The high school senior and Michigan Wolverines commit is one of the top players in the nation and the five-star cornerback has already been turning heads early in his final high school football season.
The Paramus Catholic star showcased his talent in a recent prep scrimmage that will surely make Michigan head coach Brady Hoke crack a smile. Peppers is a cornerback, but most top high school athletes can play both sides of the ball and that’s exactly what the kid did during the scrimmage.
Watch Peppers take a handoff and make one of the most amazing runs you will see in a while:
As you can see, he broke about eight or nine tackles on the way to a score. Sure it was only a 30-yard run, but it was more impressive run than any I’ve seen in recent memory — and the kid isn’t even getting recruited as a running back.
It’s rare that you see one of these awesome videos. It takes you back to the days of Reggie Bush at USC and in high school and who could forget Noel Devine‘s amazing high school footage.
Peppers has the ability to play both sides of the ball and be a top recruit at either — or so it seems — which makes Brady Hoke’s job just that much easier. Should he ever have an overload of cornerback, not that he wouldn’t start the best cornerback in the nation, he can just simply put him on offense and watch him work his magic.
Amazing stuff, Jabrill.
