One Offer So Far for Lipscomb
The Adidas Texas 7v7 Championships gave several Scout.com analysts and writers the opportunity to see not only some of the state's most easily recognizable high-major talent, but plenty of under-the-radar prospects. One who played particularly well this past weekend at the event was Navasota 2015 receiver/cornerback Jerbrell Lipscomb. The 5-foot-9, 186-pound Lipscomb reported an FBS offer from North Texas and an FCS offer from McNeese State. He also said two more FBS programs could be close to offers. "Working on New Mexico and Houston," Lipscomb said. "Couple of them (like him) at inside receiver, a couple of them cornerback." Lipscomb played both during Navasota's run to the small-school championship bracket's round of 16, where the Rattlers fell 46-40 to eventual champ Graham, which won its second state 7v7 small-school crown. Lipscomb has very good bulk and strength, even if his frame potential is a bit limited. He was a capable difference-maker on both sides of the ball, though he looked better at cornerback, which is where Scout projects him. Cornerback is where North Texas wants Lipscomb, who said Mean Green safeties coach Perry Carter is his primary recruiter. Carter spent the past four seasons as an assistant defensive backs coach for the Houston Texans. "North Texas, when they offered me they said they wanted me to come in and actually play (early)," Lipscomb said. "They want me to get on the field and make plays. They were telling me about the school and stuff." Lipscomb said he has already been to Baylor and Texas for camps, but hopes to get to the FBS school that has offered. "I think I'm gonna visit North Texas," Lipscomb said. "I think I"m gonna visit North Texas and probably Houston." Navasota, which won a state title in 2012, has gone 26-2 during the past two seasons. Lipscomb had a strong junior seasons, catching 40 passes for 704 yards and six touchdowns, while recording 32 tackles, three interceptions, and eight pass breakups defensively. Lipscomb joins 2015 athlete Davon Jernigan, 2015 running back Derrion Randle, and 2016 receiver Tren'Davion Dickson to give the Rattlers a very talented core that gives Navasota high expectations once again in 2014.
