Jequez Ezzard is a speedster who maybe a little small at 5’9, but this kid will make you miss and is not afraid of contact. The Hapeville Charter High School grad from College Park, Georgia has had a pretty amazing career.
In his true freshman year he played in four games, recorded 2 receptions for 27 yards and added help on special teams adding 13 kick returns for 272 yards.

In 2017, Ezzard was named to the All-Conference first team after dominating the MEAC all 11 games he played in. He racked up 895 yards on 34 receptions with six touchdowns. He finished with six 100 yard games finishing third in the country with 26.3 yards per reception.
Jequez won almost every award known to man in 2018. He finished on the Walter Payton Offensive Player of the Year Award Watch List, and finished with 40 receptions and 12 touchdowns. He racked up 1,064 yards receiving. He finished with five 100 yard games and a pair of 200 yard games.
In 2020, Ezzard will have a new home. Former Howard wide receiver Jequez Ezzard will be transferring to Sam Houston State. He will have one season of eligibility remaining after missing all the 2019 season with an injury.
Sam Houston is getting a playmaker, so it will be interesting to see how it plays out in 2020!
NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes:
Jequez Ezzard will go to a much better football program. Leaving from the MEAC to a Sam Houston State team will help his draft stock especially if he can return to 2018 form. The prior injuries will hurt a bit, but if he can be productive in the Southland Conference, I would expect NFL scouts to be paying closer attention. Ezzard will definitely have more NFL eyes on him at SHSU than he would have at Howard. – Damond Talbot, NFL Draft Diamonds Owner
