With signing three prospects in last year’s recruiting class from the Great Lake State, Minnesota is looking capitalize on that success and build off it. Tight ends coach Rob Reeves has been venturing around Michigan and extended an offer out to their top ranked signal caller in Saline (MI.) junior quarterback Josh Jackson.
“I called the coach today and we talked for a little and he offered,” Jackson told GopherDigest. “I’m very excited about the offer. I talked with Coach Reeves and that was mainly about it he told me.”
The three star 6-2, 215-pound Jackson holds several offers from Air Force, Boston College, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Eastern Michigan, Miami OH, Northwestern, Ohio, Syracuse, Toledo, Utah, West Virginia and now Minnesota. With this offer from the Gophers, it has definitely sparked his interest and could be a school he visits down the road.
“I like that they have a good coaching staff and always been a good school for football and academics,” said Jackson. “Yeah, definitely I could visit them in the future.”
Holding a handful of offers and hearing from a number of others, the No. 39 ranked quarterback in the nation by Scout is a top priority for many schools, but he is still taking his time and working to narrow down his list of suitors.
“No, I haven’t made a top list yet. I will in the next few weeks. Pretty good chances Minnesota makes the list I think.”
