Jon Jennings, UMGoBlog.com: “Simply a special player. You won’t find a more physical corner back prospect in the last 10 years. It would be hard to find any defensive back with his abilities with a ball in his hand as well. Peppers has the speed, athletic ability and strength to play man coverage or bump and run coverage against any wide receiver in the country. Peppers does a great job breaking on the ball, has great hands and is very good against the run. He is a team player, a great leader and has a contagious personality. Jabrill is also a top notch student. There is not much negative about him or his game. However he does seem more fast then quick. He is a phenomenal athlete, but does appear to be a little stiff in the hips. Being so physically mature at his age, does he outgrow the corner back position? Time will tell, but he’s obviously a home run recruit who is deserving of his consensus 5 star rating and #2 overall ranking by ESPN and Rivals.”
Sean O’Connell, UMGoBlog.com: “A flat out stud. Jon did an awesome job with his analysis and I echo all of it. One thing that I will add is that Peppers is a great competitor and wants to be the best. I absolutely love this quote: "He compared me to (Woodson) a lot actually, but my goal is that I want to be better than Charles Woodson.” Jabrill is a “Michigan Man” on and off the field and at minimum should be an All-B1G type player.
ESPN Insider: “Whether deployed as an offensive or defensive skill position or as a returner, Peppers is a playmaker with explosive speed, smooth movements and excellent athleticism. He’s very confident in his skills and he should be. This young man is a game changer and could project at a few different positions at the next level but DB, likely corner, might be the spot.”
