It's worth remembering, though, that there's functionally little difference between 2- and 3-star prospects at Iowa when it comes to predicting future success to begin with-and being that we're talking about a smallish guy with speed, he's even the type of 2-star recruit that typically goes far at Iowa. So don't get too bummed about Jinning's light offer sheet; he's a guy Iowa targeted early and got. If he works hard and stays out of trouble, he'll do fine.

COMPARABLE. Jinning will have to develop into a Big Ten linebacker and that could be a season or two. He's not tall or rangy to play outside and is perhaps better suited in the middle. He could be a career role player or could be the next Quinton Alston.
