The Bearcats went on to capture their tenth state championship in school history with the win, which is more than any school in Texas history.
Former BYU wide receiver and Earle’s trainer, Margin Hooks told Touchdown Alabama Earle is an artist when it comes to playing the wide receiver position.
“He has grasped an understanding of the craft, not just going out and running routes but understanding how to set routes up, how to make moves at the top of the route, and how to create separation,” Hooks added. “JoJo is also very deceptive. When you see him live, you notice how smooth he is. I compare him to a luxury vehicle. It does not look like he is moving, but in reality, he is flying. He makes everything look easy with his vision and with his ability to make lateral adjustments in mid-stride. There are some things that we have worked on, but a lot of it is just a gift that he has.”
Alabama is expected to get Earle on campus in the summer.
