Top 2014 CB Jalen Tabor Prospect Profile
Jalen Tabor is the sixth best cornerback prospect in the 2014 football recruiting class, according to Scout. Tabor, out of Edison-Friendship Charter (Washington, DC), is a cornerback who is always a threat to snag an interception and when he doesn’t he usually deflects the ball. He is disciplined in his approach to defense and has the size to not get out-muscled by other wide receivers.
He also knows how to time hitting the wide receiver so that they are getting hit just as they touch the ball. His pass deflection at the 2:03 mark of the video below is just an all-out effort play.
He also shows the ability to hit hard (2:43), and those are the type of hits that the offense will leave a lasting impression. Tabor is also a pretty serviceable punt returner, and though he probably won’t do that regularly at the college level, it also might be a possibility. Tabor’s approach to the game is passionate and you have to love that level of commitment from him.
He is one of the best players in the DC metro area, and the level of competition in DMV area football has not been this high in some time. We will see great things happen in Tabor’s future, and you can bet that he will be part of a top college football program soon.
