More on receivers

Resource has gone receiver-happy lately.  Here's one more entry.

Another wide receiver we really like and look forward to watching this year is Cal's other athletic marvel not named Marshawn Lynch: DeSean Jackson.

Jackson blew us away at the Army AA high school all star game.  In fact, he won the MVP award, making plays all over the field, lapping the best high school competition around (still nothing compared to college football at its lowest levels, mind you), and showing great ability to makes plays on the ground (two touchdowns, one where he just blew past a defensive back, another where he wove through the defense, effortlessly) and in the air.  He's a bit smallish, at around 6-0, 170, but with those skills you don't need to be big, just keep what you're doing.

I don't know how long it will take him to acclimate to the Cal offense, but given his skills one has to believe both parties will try and expedite things if at all possible.

And as follow-up to our thoughts about Patrick Turner.  We reviewed his Rivals.com tape again, and talked to some people---this guy really might be the best receiver to ever come to USC when his playing days are done there.  Now if only he can get past two All-American candidates in Dwayne Jarrett, a sophomore, and Steve Smith, a junior.  Must be nice to be Matt Leinart right about now.

Us Cal fans hope that he will adjust quickly to the speed of the game. Marshawn and the offensive line will only be able to do so much unless he and the newcomers fit in, and the others step it up. Lynch may suffer some from the absence of Macarthur and Makonnen - both very good downfield blockers - on his long runs.

Many of us SC fans wish DeSean the best, even though he lied to Coach Carroll.

I'm glad he has your Trojan blessing.
