The Southeast's Top Quarterback is UA Bound

Star Jackson, a four-star quarterback from Lake Worth, (Fla.), announced his college decision Wednesday afternoon choosing the University of Alabama over West Virginia.


Star Jackson entered the recruiting scene during the spring, but saw his stock drastically increase during the summer. The 6-foot-3, 185-pound prospect is the top ranked quarterback in the state of Florida.

The Lake Worth standout passed for over 1,900 yards and rushed for over 750 yards during his junior season.

Scout.com analysis of the Tide's newest commitment: Jackson is a quarterback with a great feel for the game. He is very good at sensing the rush and adjusts quickly to either bail or use his quick release to get rid of the ball. Very good at locating open receivers on the run outside the pocket and has great touch on the ball inside 25 yards. Stands tall in the pocket and reads quickly. Tendency to hop forward when throwing to get more velocity on the ball and could have a higher release.

Jackson was holding numerous scholarship offers including West Virginia, Auburn, Florida State, Central Florida and South Florida.
