Wide Receiver/Defensive Back | 6'0 | 160
Walker HS | Jasper, Ala.
Walker Head Coach John Holladay
"Jacquese has a lot of potential on either side of the line of scrimmage. He has great work ethic and a lot of personal integrity. He's also blessed with what I'd call very good competitive drive.
"Jacquese is a dynamic athlete, a guy that really reacts due to his quick feet and explosiveness. He's got great cover corner abilities.
"For the last three years, he's been a very special player here, especially as a defensive back. After his sophomore year, nobody threw the ball in his direction."
