TCU makes the cut for Texas prep ATH Vernon Jackson

TCU made the top five for Boiling high school (Texas) four-star athlete prospect Vernon Jackson.

Boiling high school (Texas) four-star athlete prospect Vernon Jackson dropped a top five on Saturday - listing TCU as a school that made the cut.

"Jackson is an interesting specimen," said national recruiting analyst Greg Powers. "The jumbo-framed athlete plays quarterback and linebacker for his high school team and could do a number of different things on the next level. Most have him pegged for the defensive side of he football, where he can use his football instincts and surprising agility to secure tackles. He could also get some looks on offense as a running back as well, and of course as a QB he helped his team to the state championship game s a junior, so he has some definite skill with the football in his hands."

Also making the cut was Oklahoma, Baylor, Alabama and Texas A&M. 

"I really like Coach Fitch and Coach P," said Jackson, when asked the reason TCU made the cut. "It's a big family at TCU."
