Long before Jim Mora became a college football coach, he wanted to recruit Myles Jack.
Mora first met Jack in Seattle when his son Ryder was playing youth football with Jack's younger brother Jahlen. Mora knew he had a player on his hands.
"I remember when they showed up from Georgia and Myles showed up to practice up at this place called Wilburton, he had on his shower shoes, white sock, gray sweats, t-shirt," Mora said. "I said, 'How old is that kid?' And they said he was only like 12 and he was already just jacked up."
Fast-forward six years, and Jack is playing both inside and outside linebacker for Mora's Bruins. They're also throwing around the idea of letting Jack run the ball, as he was primarily a running back in high school.
The 6-foot-1, 225-pound Jack is exactly the type of versatile player that any coach would want on the team, so it's no surprise that Mora coveted Jack for years.
But what he didn't know six years ago was that Jack already wanted to play for him....
