Coffeyville Community College freshman safety Darreon Jackson announced his commitment on Twitter to Kansas Monday on the heels of his weekend official visit to Lawrence.
Jackson finished the 2016 season third in tackles for Coffeyville with 94 total stops. He led the team with five interceptions, and added 4.5 TFL, six pass breakups and a forced fumble.
Jackson was a three-star prospect out of Derby (Kansas) High School who originally committed to Texas Tech, but then flipped to Boise State a couple weeks before National Signing Day 2015. He kept his decision silent until signing day, however, surprising many. He also had offers out of high school from both Kansas and Kansas State.
He was dismissed from Boise State during his redshirt freshman season, and will have three years of eligibility with the Jayhawks.
