The Opening: Previewing SoSo Jamabo is profiling each member from the Midlands Region heading to The Opening next week at Nike's headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, and in this installment we look at uncommitted four-star running back SoSo Jamabo.

Sotonye Jamabo

7v7 Team: Landsharks
Position: RB
HT: 6'2 | WT: 207
Plano West (Texas)

Recruiting: Jamabo is still considering schools such as UCLA, Notre Dame, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Ohio State and Baylor.

Scouting Report: Playing against top Class 5A competition he helped to lead his Wolves to the Quarterfinals with tough wins down the stretch. He has that special ability with the ball in his hands to be able to make the spectacular play, either by running around or through tackles and then showing the speed and open field vision to take it to the house. He is a big back, who will draw comparisons Eddie George, because of his 6'3 size and his style of play.

At Stake: Also an accomplished hoops player, Jamabo could show that he is 100 percent focused on his football game at this time. When he is in the zone he is one of the top players on any field. Recommended Stories
