Early in his high school career Class of 2015 Tucker (Ga.) defensive back Dre Jackson netted an offer from Georgia Tech, but after transferring schools twice, the 5-foot-10, 168-pound prospect slipped off the radar. Now he's hoping a solid senior year can put him back on the map.
"The recruiting process has been pretty slow after I transferred schools," Jackson said. "But now that I'm here at Tucker it's starting to pick back up and coaches are coming by to see me again."
Tucker is one of the top programs in the state of Georgia and college coaches often make their way through during the spring evaluation period. Jackson said several coaches have let him know that they're watching him closely.
"Iowa, Notre Dame and Marshall have all come by recently," he said. "I talked a lot with Notre Dame and Iowa and they said they're be watching me closely."
Marshall already has one commit on the Tucker roster in running back Delvin Weems and Jackson said the Herd are showing a lot of interest in him as well.
"We've been talking a lot," he said. "They came by the school and they were out for my spring game. They want to keep in touch with me and keep talking."
While he waits for his next offer, Jackson said he's planning on hitting the camp circuit hard.
"I want to go to a lot of camps," he said. "I know I'm going to camp at Georgia's Dawg Night for sure and I'll probably go back to Ohio State for Friday Night Lights."
