Jackson Commits to Texas Tech

Amarillo DT Ivory Jackson committed to Texas Tech on Friday.

The Red Raiders picked up their 13th commitment of the 2016 class with the pledge of Amarillo defensive tackle Ivory Jackson.

"I love the program and the school, I think it's one of the best," said Jackson in a previous interview.

Texas Tech offered the 6-foot-3, 275-pound 2014 first-team All-District 2-6A performer back in Februaury. Coach Eric Morris led his recruitment.

"Coach Morris and I have built a great connection," Jackson said. "We talk like 1-2 times a week."

Jackson told RaiderPower.com the Tech coaching staff sees him playing a 3-technique, but also wants to move him around the defensive front to see where he best fits and to take advantage of his skills.

Jackson is the second defensive tackle commit of the 2016 class joining Mychealon Thomas, who committed on May 21.

The Amarillo defensive lineman picked Tech over offers from Kansas, Kansas State, North Texasm SMU and Texas State.
