2015 QB Tyree Jackson is 6'3", 187 lbs. and claims a 4.8 40. With very limited film out there on him it's hard to verify that speed, but 4.8 isn't exactly unrealistic. He's listed as a pro-style quarterback but has enough athleticism to move the chains with his legs.
Per Steve Lorenz, Jackson will be in attendance for the Indiana game this weekend and I was able to chat with him tonight about his recruitment and his weekend expectations.
Jackson doesn't hold any offers at this time but he told me he is hearing from quite a few schools including Michigan, Oregon, Missouri, Bowling Green, Toledo, Western Michigan, Nebraska, and Cincinnati.
He's been getting a lot of mail from Michigan lately and Coach Ferrigno visited Jackson at Mona Shores High School in Muskegon two weeks ago to setup a game visit. Jackson decided to take Coach Ferrigno up on that offer this weekend to watch his first game at The Big House against the Hoosiers.
Jackson will attend the game Saturday with his coach and a running back teammate, with no set plans other than to take the experience in and enjoy the game. Afterwards he does plan to meet up with Coach Ferrigno and Coach Borges to talk about his future recruitment.
Being an in-state kid, Jackson admitted to growing up a Michigan fan but he kept everything very PC when I asked him if he had any favorites or desirable offers, saying at this point he'd be blessed by any offer he received.
