One of the finest defensive players in Georgia is drawing attention from top
programs across the southeast.
Jarvis Jackson, a 6-foot-2, 205-pound linebacker from Atlanta's Booker
T. Washington High School, has garnered offers from Ole Miss, Clemson, Virginia,
Georgia Tech, North Carolina and Tennessee. He's also expecting an offer from
home state Georgia in the near future.
"We think he's going to be able to pick wherever he wants to go," said BTW
assistant coach Kevin Weaver. "Everybody has been up here to see him, and
they've all come away impressed.
"He's got everything you look for in an outside linebacker or maybe a strong
safety depending on the system. He's a sideline-to-sideline guy. He can really
run, and that helps him make a lot of plays. And when he gets to the ball, he
makes a big impact, leaves an impression on the back."
Jackson (4.6 forty, 285 bench) earned second-team all-state honors as a
junior after chalking up 156 tackles, nine sacks and two interceptions. He's
also a strong student, carrying a GPA over 3.0.
