I don’t know if Jaylon Peoples was the first of the three Cedar Hill commits, but he’ll be first today and first in your hearts. Peoples has 30+ offers and could have basically gone anywhere.

RedRaiderSports’ Ben Golan spoke with Peoples who basically just wanted to play for Joey McGuire:

“Me playing for coach McGuire has always been a dream of mine. Growing up and watching him coach my older brothers, all three of my brothers came through his program, and me just watching him as a young kid coach his team and take them to multiple championships means a lot to me.

When I was younger I’d always tell him ‘coach, I’m gonna play for you, I promise I am’. He went off to Baylor and that’s where I wanted to go but something in my mind, my gut and my heart told me to wait a little minute. So I waited and boom, he got a head coaching job.

He told me he wanted to be a head coach again so I trusted him and God is on my side. I’m glad that I get to say that I’m finally a Red Raider.”

You love to see it.

Peoples is a bigger cornerback that seemingly makes a ton of plays. Would love to see him just flat out run, but not a ton of video of that. Regardless, he’s got nice anticipation and instincts. He has length. Not afraid to stick his nose in to make a play on a run play and he’s really opportunistic. I’d love to know what People’s 40-time actually is. My guess is that he relies on athleticism mor than speed at this point, not that he’s not fast, but that may not be his best trait now.

One down and as of right now, four more player profiles to go.
