Hey fellow 11wers, just spoke to Jalin's brother in law who I work with in Dayton, got lots of good info from him on how our favorite incoming freshman play maker is doing. Says Jalin intends to sit back and enjoy the rest of his senior year in high school. Basketball ended well for him even though he was at the UA game during the teams last tournament of the year.
The shoulder is doing fine, says it's not really hindering him from getting in workouts, but he is taking it slow to make sure it heals up right. Jalin has been working out with Braxton Miller to try and get that cohesiveness before the season starts. Turns out Marshall has a brother that lives in Columbus so he goes up there and stays and works out with BM5 independently when they have the chance.
Guys, the kid is insanely humble, and a player we should all be glad is in Columbus. I mentioned to his brother in-law "Jalin really could play in the NFL if he wanted too." And he told me Jalin isn't even worried about any of that. He said he wants to get a degree from Ohio State and let the rest work itself out. He went on to say that Jalin wants to try to break every major receiving record at Ohio State and he thinks he will be able too. The confidence and humility are both traits we need in our guys in Columbus.
That's all I have at the moment, hopefully the news on the injury helps put some of your minds at ease, because it indeed looks like he is doing just fine. Basketball season is over, and he is getting his mind and body right for his freshman year in Columbus.
