2017 Pearl River CB Tyler Jack has three offers and more could be on the way

2017 Pearl River CB Tyler Jack (5-10, 170) recently added an offer Troy...


"I just got an offer from Troy," Jack told JCFootball.com. "I already had offers from SMU and Memphis and Southern Mississippi is supposed to call me next week and I feel like they could be the next school to offer me.

"I'm actually planning to go up to see Troy this weekend to check things out and I want to get out and see Southern Miss this summer at some point too."

In addition to those schools, Jack said he's also been hearing from New Mexico and Cincinnati and that Minnesota and South Alabama have been talking his coaches.

As a freshman last season, Jack finished with 60 tackles and four interceptions from his right corner spot in the Pearl River secondary.

"I started on the right side all year," Jack said. "I'm better in press coverage because I like to get my hands on the receiver and not give him a free release.

"When you're in off coverage or in cover two, you give them that free release, but I like to get up and play physically and make it harder on the receiver."

This offseason, Jack has been hard at work perfecting his skills, hoping to become even better when the ball is in the air.

"I had four picks, but I want to get better ball skills, so I've been doing ball drills, tip drills, tracking the ball, getting my head around, stuff like that," Jack said. "I also am working really hard to get my speed even better than it already is, so I've been doing a lot of explosive work and footwork drills."

As a prep at George County (Lucedale, Ms.), Jack was unable to get qualified, so he started to look at going to JUCO route and Pearl River seemed like the best opportunity to get his academics in line while getting ready to play ball at a four-year school.

"The staff here is great and I liked them a lot," Jack said. "I also felt like I competition here was great and the campus and the dorms here were the best I saw."

Jack is on pace to finish up his academic work next May and he will have three years to play two following the 2016 football season.
