Always in the market for players who can get pressure on the quarterback, the Cougs have officially added defensive end Brennan Jackson. The WSU defense was led by the front seven in 2017 and the Temecula, Calif. native could be a key cog in that unit for years to come.
WSU was the first program to offer Jackson, and he repaid the favor by wrapping up his recruitment in the early signing period. He was also offered by Arizona, Cal, Iowa State, and others but only took an official visit to Pullman.
A consensus three star prospect, Jackson is ranked as the no. 109 overall prospect in California by 247 sports. He’s the no. 86 defensive end in the country according to ESPN.
At 6 foot 4, 238 pounds Jackson has positional options at WSU. He’s undersized to play nose tackle but could play at the two other spots on the defensive line, depending on his development.
As a senior for Great Oak High School, Jackson recorded 78 tackles, two sacks, and 13.5 tackles for loss. He also played on offense as a tight end, catching 12 passes for 193 yards and a touchdown.
