Jack Adds Mountain West Offer

Pearl River CB Tyler Jack (5-10, 170) has added an offer from a Mountain West school...


"I just got offered by New Mexico," Jack told JCFootball.com.

The offer from the Lobos is Jack's fourth, joining the ones he already had from SMUMemphis and Troy.

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 back in June. "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.
