Jackson Commits To Wyoming Cowboys

Oklahoma State has not been in the picture for awhile but the home state Cowboys did take a long look at Kingfisher All-State standout offensive guard and defensive tackle Kaden Jackson. Jackson, also a two-time state champion in the shot out in Class 3A, helped the Yellow Jackets to the Class 3A state championship in football last season.

The 6-3, 270-pound Jackson had offers from a number of schools but he looked hard at Ohio and visited there. He took an official visit to Wyoming recently and last weekend was at North Texas's resounding win over Nicholls State. On Sunday night he announced he is heading to Wyoming.

"I feel really good about it," Jackson said of his decision.

He actually made his mind up on the way home for the North Texas game.

"I went to that game and it was great," he said. "They were my number one for awhile, but I realized my heart was with Wyoming and that I wanted to be there."

"I went on the official visit to Wyoming and I had a blast," Jackson continued. "I love the coaches and how they do things, and I love everything they are doing in the program (facilities improvements). It is all awesome and they are having a great season with the only loss to Oregon. I love it all up at Wyoming. It is truly the place for me."

New Wyoming head coach Craig Bohls, who orchestrated the run of FCS powerhouse and two-time NCAA champion North Dakota State, will be getting a lineman that could easily play on either side, guard on offense and defensive tackle on the other side. Jackson last season had 53 tackles including 14 tackles for loss.
