Kentucky added a surprised defensive back this past week on signing day. St. John’s College-High (DC) defensive back Will Jackson signed with Kentucky after visiting the weekend before signing day.

Kentucky missed out on one defensive back from our nation’s capital, but landed another one who has all the physical attributes you’d want as an incoming freshman.

“I would say my strengths are my footwork, size, ball skills, lateral movement, length and being able to play corner, safety, nickel or receiver. I think I have a good football IQ also,” Jackson said.

Kentucky was able to bring Jackson in on and official visit just on the 30th, just before sealing the deal on Wednesday morning.

“I visited this past weekend for my official visit. I like how all the players are down to Earth, humble and hungry. I like the slow environment. There’s a lot of southern hospitality,” he continued.

Jackson also believed what the coaches had to tell him in regard to developing as a player.

“I mixed in well with the players and the coaches. It felt comfortable. The coaches made me feel like they could take me to the next level and that Kentucky was headed to the next level,” he finished.

All Wildcats and Scout will keep you updated on Will Jackson.
