Tre Jackson Pulls the Trigger

Wayne County defensive lineman Tre Jackson made the trip to Atlanta to watch the Georgia Tech-Virginia game. He had other plans for making the trip as well. He was going to talk with Coach Johnson and hoping to get the written offer to go with the verbal offer he received form Coach Owens this past week.

Tre was happy with his meeting and happy with the outcome of the game for his future teammates. "It went very well and I enjoyed the fan base and seeing all the happenings around the football program."

Jackson also spent some time with Georgia Tech Coach Paul Johnson. "He told me there were four spots left on the offensive and defensive lines and that I impressed him with my ability to play both side of the ball equally well," said Jackson. "He told me I had great footwork and then gave me a written offer."

Jackson came to the game knowing that if he did get a written offer, he would commit. "I did commit as it was the offer I wanted and was waiting for." Tre told Johnson that he made him very happy by offering him a scholarship. "I was more than happy to commit and to be ready to play for Georgia Tech."

Tre had plans to visit Georgia and Georgia Southern but he'll no longer be taking those trips. "I am through with my recruitment," said Tre. "I have an offer from the team I wanted to play for from the start and there is no reason to go to any other school."

Once he made his commitment, Jackson was able to relax and enjoy Tech's win over Virginia. "It was great and the fans were really into the game and both Anthony Allen and Joshua Nesbitt had great games." Tre liked the way the defense rose to the occasion when it mattered the most and he really enjoyed the outcome of the game.

While Coach Johnson mentioned that he was impressed with Jackson's play on both sides of the ball, it is still not clear where he'll play. "He just told me that he was happy to have me at Georgia Tech and the position I'd play would take care of itself."

Tre also spoke with Coach Spencer while at the game. "Coach Spencer told me that he was very glad I was coming to Georgia Tech that my film impressed all the coaches on the staff."

Jackson doesn't have a preference as to which side of the ball he plays." Either side is fine with me as I play both sides for Wayne County and rarely, if ever, come out of the game except for special teams play."
