One of Texas A&M's highest-rated commitments made the short 25-mile drive to from Navasota on Saturday to take in the game day festivities at Kyle Field as the Aggies defeated the Colorado Buffaloes 24-17. Brandal Jackson, the Scout.com four-star wide receiver, liked what he saw from the team, and especially liked what he saw from the passing game.
"The team is coming around and they are getting better," Jackson said. "You can see that they are getting into the spread and throwing the ball all over the field. I really liked Jeff Fuller's long touchdown catch. He's smooth."
The Navasota prospect talked to Fuller after the game along with several others on the team and he seems more comfortable with his future teammates and the direction of the A&M program than he was just a couple of weeks ago.
"I'm really trying to get to know them, and I'm starting to feel like part of the team," Jackson said. "I talked to Jeff Fuller after the game and he really likes it at A&M and he seemed to be happy with how the team is coming together."
The 6-foot-2, 180-pound playmaker is having an excellent senior season which is contributing to a special season for the state-ranked and undefeated Rattlers of Navasota. Jackson has caught 28 passes for 728 yards and 12 touchdowns, and he feels he's taken his game to another level this fall.
"I worked hard in the offseason to get faster and it's paid off. It's added to my confidence that I can beat anybody at anytime," Jackson said. "I also feel my hands have gotten better and if a ball is in the air, I'll find a way to catch it. It's mine."
Jackson indicated that a couple of schools have inquired about his status, but he said that he's satisfied with his choice to play for Coach Sherman and the staff at Texas A&M.
"I'm a solid commit to A&M," Jackson said. "I'm comfortable with the offense and I think they spread it around pretty good to the receivers. I'm ready to get there and compete for a job."
Navasota concludes the regular season this weekend at home when they battle region rival Madisonville, a team that features one of the state's top running backs and Texas commit Chris Whaley. The Rattlers are expecting a bye next weekend before entering the state playoffs as a contender for the state 3A crown.
