Jarvis Jackson (6'1, 205, 4.5) of Booker T. Washington High School in Atlanta is a speedy linebacker who has been well known for the making the big play throughout his high school career. The Tigers were the first school to offer Jackson, and reportedly Clemson likes him as an outside linebacker.
Jarvis has excellent speed and a great nose for the football. He has outstanding lateral movement and is excellent at sniffing out the play action pass. Most experts are saying that he'll play linebacker or strong safety at the collegiate level, but he looks most comfortable at linebacker. He's not afraid to deliver the big hit, and he's a natural leader on defense.
Jackson is one of those guys that never gives up on a play, watching him on film, he reminds me of former Tiger great Keith Adams. He's always running full speed, and he often is able to use quickness to compensate for mistakes in coverage. Fortunately, he has the potential to grow into a much bigger version of Adams, which could make him a hot commodity come February.
Here are some of the highlights we captured from Washington's 28-14 win over Mays High School last Friday. Jarvis is #9, and you might recognize two other Tiger recruits on the defensive side of the ball. Avery Roberson wears #4, and Jeramie Johnson wears #3. We'll have more video of those two prospects later in the week.
Jarvis Jackson Highlights
In this sequence, you'll see #9 Jarvis Jackson make several plays but the first thing you should notice is his pursuit to the football. Make no mistake about it, the kid has a motor and he likes to use it. The video clip ends with Jackson making a leaping interception to prevent Mays from scoring at the end of the 2nd quarter.
Jackson maintains that Clemson, Georgia Tech, West Virginia, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and Auburn are still his favorites. We will continue to keep you updated on Jarvis Jackson throughout the season.
