USC Trojans redshirt freshman receiver Adoree’ Jackson has yet to play a game for the team, but he has already received a solid endorsement from wide receivers coach Tee Martin. Speaking to Lindsey Thiry of the Los Angeles Times, Martin compared Jackson to NFL wide receivers Randall Cobb and, oddly enough, former Trojan Marqise Lee, who was drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars last year.
“He’s like a Marqise Lee, where ‘Wow,’ whatever this guy can do with the ball in his hands, he can do it and you want the ball in his hands,” Martin said.
“Randall was extremely intelligent and from that standpoint, they are very, very similar,” Martin said.
That’s quite lofty praise for Jackson, a former five-star recruit out of Californa’s Juniperro Serra High School, near Los Angeles. He has a slim and speedy build at 5-foot-11, 185 pounds and the fact that he drew a comparison to two fine players is testament to how talented he really is, especially considering that Cobb is a Pro Bowler.
Once USC kicks off its season at home against Arkansas State on September 5, fans will finally get a chance to see how Jackson’s talent in practice translates to actual games.
