ATH Jaylen Jackson will officially join the Georgia Tech Football program on Wednesday when he signs his letter of intent.
One of Georgia Tech’s latest commitments of the 2018 recruiting class will officially become a Jacket on Wednesday. That signee will be athlete Jaylen Jackson, a former commitment to the University of Cincinnati.
Jackson, a three-star composite recruit is an athlete for Brunswick High School football’s team, spending time at cornerback, free safety, and wide receiver. He is expected to play cornerback at the next level but nothing is official.
No matter where he plays for the Jackets going forward, Jackson’s stature of 6-foot-0 and 182-pounds is a great size for all three positions. He is considered the 171st best corner in the country according to 247Sports and a top 2,000 player in the nation.
According to his 247Sports program, Jackson received just three scholarship offers, those being from Cincinnati, Georgia Tech, and Wake Forest. Other schools that showed interest in the Brunswick native include Auburn, Clemson, and South Carolina.
Jackson’s primary recruiter was co-running backs coach Lamar Owens who also recruited Dontae Smith in this cycle. Prior to this past weekend, Jackson had a commitment to the University of Cincinnati since October 1st.
The Jackets kept interest in Jackson and came to The Flats this past weekend for an official visit. He ended up receiving an offer this past weekend on his visit and flipped his commitment to the Jackets.
DE Zakk McKeehan was a fellow visitor who ended up flipping his commitment to the Jackets from another program after his own official visit.
