Mark Jackson Snapshot

The Texas Longhorns will have a premium on the defensive end position in 2016. One player Texas has targeted is Mark Jackson. The 6-foot-4, 220-pound edge rusher checks in from Cibolo (Texas) Steele.

Mark Jackson is one of the top defensive end prospects in the state of Texas. Jackson recently visited Texas for the first junior day of the season in Austin. The defensive staff did a wonderful job explaining the “Fox” position to Jackson and what his role will be with the team. Jackson also enjoyed spending time with new defensive line coach Brick Haley. Jackson had another good conversation with Vance Bedford and coach Haley earlier today. Texas will be in the mix until the end with Jackson and his family.

Jackson holds offers from Baylor, Missouri, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas and Texas Tech to name a few.

Jackson could turn into one of the top speed rushing defensive ends in the country before his senior season is finished. He has great lateral movement down the line, legit speed, athletic ability through the roof and uses his hands well.
