Jalen is the son of former Texas Tech star and eight-year NFL veteran Montae Reagor. His father was a stud defensive lineman but the younger Reagor is an electric receiver. The four-star recruit from Waxahachie, Texas, announced himself as a playmaker in 2017, winning Big 12 Co-Offensive Freshman of the Year and leading the Horned Frogs with 33 receptions, 576 receiving yards (17.5 per), and eight touchdowns in 14 games (two starts). He also earned some carries (eight rushes, 65 yards, 8.1 ypc) and returned kicks (four returns, 122 yards, 30.5 average). Reagor was a second-team All-Big 12 selection and TCU's MVP in 2018, starting 11 of 13 games played and leading his squad in receiving (72 receptions, 1,061 yards, 14.7 average, nine touchdowns) while contributing as a rusher (13 carries, 170 yards, 13.1 ypc, two touchdowns) and returner (12 kick returns, 312 yards, 26.0 average; eight punt returns, 97 yards, 12.1 average). He was a second-team all-conference selection as a receiver (led team with 43 receptions, 611 yards, 14.2 average, five touchdowns in 12 starts) and return specialist (five kick returns, 72 yards, 14.4 average; 15 punt returns, 312 yards, 20.8 average, two touchdowns) in 2019.

Overview
Spotty quarterback play helped cause a production drop, but his focus and competitiveness also seemed spotty at times. Reagor is a smooth athlete with blazing speed who has more playmaking talent than receiver skill and play-callers need to account for that when determining how to utilize him. He's electric with the ball in his hands so getting it to him quickly rather than asking him to consistently make plays for himself as a ball-winner could be crucial. When 2019 is balanced against his 2018, the grade and projection begin to climb with a versatile receiver who's able to spice the offensive gumbo.
