Evaluation & Analysis
Jaylin Petty (24′) | 6-2 / 215 | LB | Connally
Jaylin has the next-level size and talent to be a recruit every coach should know. He doesn’t have much film as of yet, but we feel in the film we have seen that Jaylin will have a breakout season for his senior year. He shows he can cover sideline-to-sideline and cover against the pass very well. Against the run, lined up at the middle linebacker position, Jaylin can shut down the run, and sniff out ball carriers for tackles for losses in the backfield. Petty has the speed and agility to explode into the backfield. Jaylin features long arms, and a lengthy frame, he can be a defender who can stand up or put his hand on the ground and get after the quarterback. He is an all-around linebacker that is versatile that can rush off the edge or play middle linebacker and shut down offenses. An FBS, to FCS caliber recruit coaches, needs to know about.
