The Bears recruiting storm continued Sunday morning, after the commitments of tight end/defensive end Rob Saulin, and the commitment of offensive linemen Khalil Keith, Baylor continued to stock its front seven with the commitment of 3-star outside linebacker Bryson Jackson.
Jackson, the 12th rated outside linebacker in Texas, committed to Minnesota on December 13th over offers from Boise State, Houston, and Tulane. The Bears offered last week, prompting an official visit this weekend. At 6-foot-2, Jackson has good height for the linebacker position. Jackson was named to the first team defense of 10-5A during Lake Ridge's 8-5 campaign. Last year, he was awarded second team 14-5A during their run to the 5A championship game.
This year for the Lake Ridge Eagles, he 60 tackles, 7 sacks, and 1 fumble caused. Jackson is the Bears second linebacker commit, joining Terrel Bernard from La Porte, TX. Safety Ashton Logan could also slide down and play linebacker as well.
He is the 17th commitment for the 2017 class, and the 8th defender.
Stay tuned for more on Jackson and the rest of the recruits expected to pledge to Baylor before February 1st.
