"Oh yea," Elijah Jett said with a smile.
As Scout.com asked him if he's often underestimated and overlooked because of his 5-foot-3, 185-pound frame, the junior was ready to answer questions he often has to either on or off the field. He knows about the stigma against him before anyone sees him perform, so he's often armed with numbers and qualities that make him standout regardless of his size.
"I run a 4.5 forty (yard dash)," he said. "I'm quick, I can shed off of linebackers, I can block and I can finish the long plays."
It was evident last weekend at the Charlotte Nike Football Training Camp, as it was Jett who took home positional MVP honors despite top prospects at the position like Bryce Love, Nyheim Hines and William Cameron at the event as well.
"I just did everything 110 percent, every route, every rep," he said. "Whether it was blocking, running, even taking mental reps. I went all in.
"The one-on-ones really clinched it, when I had to make moves past a player. I ran my routes at full speed and then went the other direction, at full speed."
Jett is used to people taking a certain approach with him before seeing him play, but it all helps him to prove doubters wrong when he gets to work or in preparation for doing so.
"My dad motivates me all the time, so I have to be stronger and quicker than most regular people because they're taller," he said. "So there's a mental thing you have to keep in the back of your mind.
"Most people aren't going to give you a chance, and will say ‘he's too small.' So you've got to keep working and use that as your motivation."
The motivation, a good junior season at Mint Hill (N.C.) Rocky River High School and strong camp showings has a few schools on the radar for the back.
"It's kind of slow right now, I'm getting some letters" Jett said. "UNC-C (North Carolina Central), Princeton and Stanford sent me one the other day.
