Valdosta (GA) Lowndes linebacker Tre Jackson committed to Georgia Tech a while ago but was back on campus to see the Yellow Jackets defeat Syracuse.
Jackson has not wavered on his pledge to Georgia Tech and came away thrilled about his future at Georgia Tech.
"I had a good time on my visit," he said. "I got to shake one of the top people from Coca Cola's hand. He said that he appreciated me being there and wanted me to have a great time. I didn't know it was him but one of the players told me it was. I thought about that the whole time riding back from Georgia Tech."
Jackson was impressed with the performance of his future college.
"They did great," he told Scout.. "They executed well. Everything was going their way. They looked really good on defense. The coaches told me that they wished they could put me out there right now which was awesome to hear. I told them that I wish I could too."
The three-star linebacker will enroll early at Georgia Tech.
"I'm very excited," he commented. "I can't wait. I talked to my mom about it after my visit. It's only a month and a half away or so. It's going to be crazy to be on my own. My mom told me that I have people at Georgia Tech that will look out for me. I have family that will be there. I trust my coaches and teammates and I'm looking forward to it."
"Coach Johnson is great," he continued. "Coach Roof is great. Coach Sewak is great. Coach Sewak is actually one of the best coaches in the country. They treat me like family and like I'm apart of the team already."
Jackson shed some light on the appearance from top target Jamiyus Pittman.
"Jamiyus (Pittman) was there," he confirmed. "I took him up there with me. He wasn't sure about going because he is injured and he didn't want the coaches think he is worthless. I told him they wouldn't think that way because the coaches there aren't like that. He had a lot of fun and really enjoyed himself. We talked about the trip the whole way home."
