This has been the season of the transfer. Transferpocalypse as we termed it has been the biggest storyline of the season. Regardless of which side you are on one thing is clear; the teams loaded with transfers have reaped the benefits almost everywhere I look. I do not begrudge the boys who moved on and transferred a thing; that is there right and I am always for supporting them.
But I am not going to lie- I love the guys who have stayed even more.
Many of the most talented players in the NW are on teams who are struggling to put up the W's. The media does not cover these teams and their players much. Easy to celebrate winners; the real test is to appreciate those on the other side of the equation. That is why we have been featuring guys who are just as talented as their star counterparts in our Sleeper Recruit category.
Tonight I want to recognize 6'3"- 185 lb. WR/Safety Jaydin Proctor of David Douglas High School. This young man has been on the rise for 4 years. He has competed in many of the offseason 7 on 7 events and is always one of the best talents no matter where we go. The kid is so good that I can not even believe he is still without major offers; no sleeper recruit by talent, however.
His length and height are great. He has terrific hands and finishes runs like a big league talent. While his speed is in that 4.6 range he is no slower than great talents like Cooper Kupp. We love Jaydin Proctor and surely feel he is in the Big Sky caliber talent pool.
Coaches this is a fine young man who despite being offered many times to move has not. This loyalty and dedication is noteworthy and another reason, one of many, he is a top recruit to go after! Check out his film here.
