QUOTABLE Brady Hoke's Comments: "Jabrill is very active, very athletic. He's a guy who is a big, instinctive, physical corner." Tom Lemming of Prep Football Report: "He could be All-American at run- ning back or DB, whatever he wants. I went to the Penn Relays last year, and he ran a 10.5 100 meters there. He's a 205-pounder. He's not built slim like a sprinter, but he runs like one. He's a legit difference-maker, the centerpiece of the class and a remarkable story. I think he's the guy that could be a pied piper for Michigan recruiting because kids gravitate toward him." Why Peppers Chose Michigan: "The official was great, and everything felt right. It felt like the perfect fit. They are going to mold me into the man I know I need to be. With all the discipline and everyone I'm going to be bumping elbows with, it'll be great." Head Coach's Comments: "Jabrill is an ultimate competitor," said Paramus Catholic head coach Chris Partridge. "He's really, really good on the field as a football player, but he's really going to be a good influence off the field, too, in the locker room and with everything he does. He's a guy who takes pride in his schoolwork and his classes, takes pride in his teammates. They're just getting an overall fantastic young man who is going to want to reach for the stars."
