Leading up to today, it was unknown whether one of the top prospects in Washington State’s recruiting class would sign during the early period, but Drue Jackson made it official Wednesday when he faxed in his national letter of intent.
The Saches, Texas product originally committed to WSU back in September over Utah and Texas Tech, in addition to offers from Boise State, Colorado, Houston, Iowa, Iowa State, Louisville, Oregon State, Wisconsin and many others. That’s a loaded offer sheet.
The 24/7 Sports Composite ranks Jackson as a three-star prospect, though ESPN and Rivals give him a four-star rating. He’s the No. 85 overall receiver in this class and the No. 66 player in the state of Texas, according to the 24/7 Sports Composite.
“It is really just the offense,” the 6-foot-1, 186-pounder explained following his commitment. “Coach (Mike) Leach is really just like everybody thinks — he throws the ball every play. It was fourth and one on the goal line. Most people are going to run the ball. They were throwing the ball, so they throw the ball all the time.”
As a senior, Jackson hauled in 41 catches for 600 yards and 7 touchdowns. He’ll likely play on the outside for WSU, most likely at the Z-position.
