Notre Dame Football Recruiting
Notre Dame landed a commitment from Jalen Guyton on March 30, 2014. Guyton hails from Allen High School outside of Dallas, Texas. Allen High School has produced several college prospects and plays the top high schools in Texas. It is safe to say that Guyton will be well prepare when he heads to Notre Dame in 2015.
Guyton has been productive in career at Allen High School. He hauled in 42 passes for 1,028 yards and 13 touchdowns. He also earned district honorable mention honors.
He collected offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Baylor, Clemson, Colorado, Mississippi, Missouri, Illinois, Northwestern, Ohio State, Oklahoma, San Diego State, SMU, Stanford, Texas A&M, TCU, Texas Tech and Wake Forest. Aside from an offer from in-state Texas, Guyton nearly has a national offer list.
Greg Powers of Scout.com wrote of Guyton:
A proven commodity in the passing game, he is a big play maker who does his damage in the deep passing game by stretching the field. His home-run ability is evident by the fact that over 30% of his total touches went for scores. He gets good separation from the defensive backs which allow him to work the deep middle. With his size and ability to catch the ball he could also be a possession style option.
Most services have Guyton rated as a 3-star recruit. He is underrated. His offer list is national with Ohio State, Oklahoma and Stanford. He accumulated great stats against some of the best competition in that country.
As a player, Guyton has breakaway speed similar to Will Fuller or Chris Brown. He is much smoother as a passing catching and route runner then those two. He will be a 4-star recruit by the end of his high school career.
