Carlton Jackson's much-awaited debut showed glimpses of stardom, and a little more consistency than Sean Hakes the day before.
Jackson made several crisp passes, particularly to Jermaine Lindsey (whom I will discuss later). It seemed he was an eyeblink slow on reading some receivers' routes, which should be expected, I suppose.
The Florida native certainly is a capable scrambler. The scary part is, it doesn't seem like Jackson is running at full speed. He may be a bit sheepish without pads. Regardless, early returns say he deserves the No. 1 status J.D. Broohart conferred to him.
