The Opening Preview: Sotonye Jamabo

Soso Jamabo

Sotonye "Soso" Jamabo, the elite running back prospect from Texas, is built more like a receiver, and should be interesting to watch at the Opening...

Sotonye Jamabo



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

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.
