Tre Jackson Spends Weekend On Campus

Tre Jackson's a 6-5, 300 pound two-way performer from Wayne County (GA) High School in Jesup, GA. He committed to Tech during the Miami-Tech game a few weeks ago. Jackson made the trip back to Atlanta this past weekend and then had two visitors when he returned to Jesup.

Tre Jackson was one of four Georgia Tech commits that took their official visits to Georgia Tech. Tallahassee Leon offensive lineman Trey Braun, Jacksonville, NC White Oak linebacker Tremayne McNair, and North Cobb, GA safety Darren Waller were also on campus for their official visits.

Two things played a major role in Jackson deciding to choose Georgia Tech to play his college ball. "When I was there I just love the atmosphere of Georgia Tech and my mom lives five to ten minutes away from the campus."

Tre spent the weekend hanging out with his fellow recruits, touring the academic and athletic facilities and meeting with the coaches. Upon his return to Jesup, Jackson had two visitors at his school on Monday. "Coach (Paul) Johnson and Coach (Mike) Sewak were at my school." Johnson and Sewak talked to Tre's coaches and teachers and toured the school.

Jackson played on both sides of the ball his senior season. The question many have asked is which side of the ball will Tre play at Georgia Tech? "They talked about my playing the defensive line and maybe some offense too."

Now that the season is over, Tre has been working out on his own. "Saturday the weight trainer at Tech is going to be sending me a workout book that they want me to follow."

After Jackson signs his letter of intent, he will be arriving at Tech in June to begin getting ready for the 2011 season. He is undecided on a major at this time. "I have about an 86 average right now."

One of the first things recruits think about after choosing there college is the jersey number that they'll be wearing. Tre is no different. "I've picked number 54," said Jackson. "A redshirt freshman has it but I think he's going to switch." Top Stories
