    2015 Gator Commitment #5:
    WR TE Kalif Jackson 6-5 197 of Duncan U. Fletcher High School, Neptune Beach FL.
    ***

    7.29.2014 Commitment.

    *********

    Finally some good news. He's a WR but Muschamp said he will play the TE position.

    BRADENTON, Fla. | Neptune Beach (Fla.) Fletcher wide receiver Kalif Jackson was a stud at the IMG 7v7 National Championship tournament over the weekend. The 6-foot-4, 195-pound three-star has all of the physical tools in the world to be a solid contributor as a big bodied receiver at the next level.

    Video Highlights:

    @DerekTysonESPN: Jackson was impressive at FNL's. Great size. He certainly looks the part of a big-time WR

    @AndrewSpiveyGC: New #Florida commit @Jackson_Kalif84 said Will Muschamp was happy when he committed and Jackson says he's a solid commit to the #Gators

    Gators up to 8 commits again in 2015. The class now ranks No. 41 in the nation.

    He has good route running skills and nice timing when he leaves the ground. Great hands as far as I can tell, but those were not hard balls to catch. Works very well in traffic. A couple of concerns. He starts looking for the ball very early, telegraphing to defenders that the ball is on its way. The other one falls into that thing that my mother used to say. "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." I'm sorry, but we've got linemen that can run this guy down. Offensive linemen. The only time he beat one-one-one coverage, he took off before the ball was snapped. Admire his ability to go up and get the ball, but he is easy to cover, easy to catch up with and easy to bring down. He might be good at moving the chains and has some great potential inside the red zone, but he is not a home run threat. I don't know if he's even an extra bases threat. Looks like an anorexic tight end, and not a very athletic one.

    Strange, I am so happy you were not the talent evaluator for the gators when they decided to offer Chris Doering and Willie Jackson!

    Well, he has a 4.6 40 time & a 4.4 shuttle time. That doesn't stack up too badly vs. 2014 NFL combine results for tight ends. http://espn.go.com/nfl/draft/combine/_/id/7

    Ignore Strange; he's probably drunk. This kid is 6-5, 200 lbs, and runs a 4.6. He has excellent hands and makes MANY difficult catches. He's a miss match waiting to happen and will be a beast in the redzone. Very intelligent kid and a great pickup!

    Welcome to Gator Nation!

    I was hoping he would be playing WR and not TE at that size. Gator's need a jump ball reciever... a kid like this could be that guy!

    For someone who linemen can run down, those safeties and CB's in the clip sure couldn't catch him when we was running free.

    I think he is one of those "looks slow" kind of kids because he is so tall. His legs may not be moving fast but he is covering a lot of ground.

    I don't think he is Percy Harvin, but he kind of reminds me of Dallas Baker, the Touchdown Maker.

    I agree. If he turns out to be as productive as Chris Doering, I will be pleasantly surprised.

    Yet we were giving FSU hell when Jeff Bowden and Jimbo ran the "jump ball offense"

    They were one dimensional with it. That was all they had.

    Doesn't mean we can't add it as a dimension to our O.

    Whoever the talent evaluators were back then chose not to offer Chris Doering. He was a walk-on. His father was a prof, so he might not have been paying tuition at all. Willie Jackson was a lot quicker and a lot faster but mainly he was a big time legacy, the son of the first African American player at UF. He was a good enough athlete to play basketball for UF his freshman year.
