Big Time DE Visiting Austin

One of the top defensive end prospects in the class of 2016 checks in from Cibolo (TX) Steele High School. Mark Jackson is a four-star defensive end at 6-foot-4, 220-pounds. Jackson will visit Austin this weekend as Texas takes on Baylor.

Mark Jackson is one of the most heavily recruited players in the state of Texas regardless of position. The No 20 ranked defensive end prospect will be in Austin this weekend with his mom, dad and brother as Texas takes on Baylor.

"We are 4-1, and I have been doing pretty good, I have six sacks," Jackson said. "I have been doing well with my edge rushing and pursuit tackling. I feel like I need to work on taking on multiple blocks a little better."

Baylor, UCLA, Oklahoma and Oregon are showing him the most love along with Texas and Alabama. Jackson has already visited Alabama, Texas and Baylor and will be back in Austin this weekend.

What does Jackson think about Charlie Strong and his strong stance on rules?

"I think that coach Strong is a great coach," Jackson said. "I feel that rules are rules and you must abide by them."
