In immediately’s Reality or Fiction nationwide columnist Mike Farrell seems to be at three large current subjects in school soccer and decides whether or not every assertion is certainly FACT or if it’s FICTION.
1. Emory Jones will land at Arizona State.
Farrell’s Take: FACT. The frenzy of Solar Devils coaches to comply with Emory Jones on social media following his announcement and entrance into the switch portal was quick — and there have been lots of them. And with Arizona State having restricted QB depth with Jayden Daniels off to LSU, the Solar Devils provide him one of the best Energy 5 alternative to win on the market.
Keep in mind that Jones, who hails from Georgia, dedicated to Ohio State out of highschool earlier than touchdown at Florida so distance isn’t an element. Cal, UCLA and Duke are others to return to thoughts however primarily based on his return curiosity in Arizona State (he has adopted 5 ASU coaches) watch this one come collectively rapidly.
2. David Ojabo will nonetheless be a first-rounder.
FICTION. David Ojabo sadly blew out his Achilles at his Professional Day at Michigan and the projected top-15 prospect will doubtless fall out of spherical one in my view. Why? This can be a deep draft for rush ends and whereas his athleticism amongst them is uncommon and Cam Akers got here again from such an harm in six months, some NFL groups had him as a challenge choose who wanted to study the sport in his first 12 months.
However now as a possible challenge and coming off harm it will likely be laborious to discover a staff that may wish to give him a spherical one contract. The highest of the second the place Jaylon Smith landed so a few years in the past after his harm in his bowl recreation is extra doubtless.
3. Jaxon Smith-Njigba is palms down one of the best receiver to return to school soccer.
Farrell’s Take: FACT. Arms down is the important thing phrase right here and I’m often hesitant to label anybody palms down higher than others. And it’s a deep receiver group returning to school soccer. However the extra I watch movie the extra I really feel that Jaxon Smith-Njigba is one of the best match within the nation at extensive receiver in school. That doesn’t imply he’s WR1 for the NFL Draft, nevertheless it means he’ll dwarf different numbers subsequent season together with the likes of Jordan Addison (Pitt), Kayshon Boutte (LSU) and Xavier Worthy (Texas).
