2024 FIVE-STAR EDGE JAMONTA WALLER FLIPS COMMITMENT TO AUBURN



WHO IS JAMONTA WALLER?


Jamonta Waller is a five-star EDGE from Picayune Memorial High School in Picayune, MS. The 6-foot-2, 235-pound EDGE originally verbally committed to Florida on June 19, 2023. However, on November 11, 2023, Waller decommitted from Florida and gave his verbal commitment to Hugh Freeze and the Auburn Tigers. Waller also ran track his sophomore year at Picayune Memorial and was clocked at 22.27 seconds in the 200-meter dash and had a 36-11 triple jump. Waller is listed as a five-star EDGE by ESPN while On3 Sports, 247Sports, and Rivals all have him listed as a four-star prospect.


WHAT IS THE IMPACT OF THE COMMITMENT FOR AUBURN


The commitment of Waller gives Auburn their 17th commitment for the 2024 class, which is ranked ninth in the SEC and 16th overall. Howard is the only EDGE committed to the Tigers.


HOW QUICKLY CAN JAMONTA WALLER CONTRIBUTE AT AUBURN?


The depth chart for EDGE rushers at Auburn has two juniors and one senior. Waller is considered a bit undersized for an EDGE in the SEC so the 2024 season should be one where he is able to bulk up and develop his frame more to handle the sizable offensive tackles he will be up against in the SEC.



SCOUTING JAMONTA WALLER


Jamonta Waller is speedy and slippery for an EDGE rusher. He uses an explosive first step on speed rushes and has the strength and length to maneuver past bigger tackles. However, he will need to bulk up some to do the same against the SEC tackles he will be facing. Waller can play on either side of the defensive line. He has good speed in pursuit and uses his speed well to get to outside runs or in the backfield to shut down slow-developing runs. Waller is good at using his hands to get off blocks. His speed allows him to make plays on the opposite side of the line of scrimmage. Waller’s long arms allow him to disrupt passing lanes. He gets his arms up when he is getting ready to make a sack which takes away the quarterback’s ability to get rid of the ball. In his junior year, Waller had 106 tackles, 11.5 sacks, and 24 tackles for loss. So far this year he has 60 tackles, nine sacks, and 20 tackles for loss.
