DT Rashaad Jackson
6-2, 270, 4.9
Union High School
Union, South Carolina
CUTigers.com first reported back on July 14th that Jackson was seeking acceptance into Clemson through the NCAA clearinghouse involving a certain stipulation involving learning difficulties.
CUTigers.com has now confirmed that that indeed Jackson has been accepted.
Jackson was headed to Southwest Mississippi JC, but now he will enroll and report to school next Thursday, August 5th. The Tigers' first official practice of the 2004 season is scheduled for the following day.
Jackson, who was selected to play in the 2003 Shrine Bowl last December after recording over 130 tackles and 12 sacks during his senior year, was one of the top defensive linemen for either team.
The former Union standout was an All-State performer as a senior and a All-Conference selection in each of the past 3 seasons.
Jackson was unavailable for comment as of Thursday afternoon.
Jackson's arrival on campus is critical considering that two other defensive linemen from the 2004 class unexpectedly fell short of qualifying. New York native Elsmore Gabriel and Alabama native Jacquez McKissic both narrowly missed getting into school this fall.
