West Virginia picked up a big commitment from three-star athlete Jordan Jackson, the brother of fellow Mountaineers commit Josiah Jackson on Thursday afternoon.
Jackson, a native of Fairfield, Ohio, is listed as the No. 18 player in the state of Ohio and is the No. 47 athlete in the 2023 class.
Jackson chose the Mountaineers over a host of other offers, including Purdue, Duke, Minnesota, Maryland, and Toledo among others.
Listed a 5-11, 175 pounds, Jackson played running back and defensive back in at Fairfield High School.
In his commitment post, Jackson thanked his coaches, teammates, and mentors for helping him get to this point in his life.
“First, I would like to thank God for giving me the talents and abilities to play the sport that I love most and allowing me to showcase my talents at the next level. Secondly, I would like to thank my family especially my parents, for guiding, supporting, and believing me through every step of the way. I would also like to thank my coaches, teammates, mentors, and trainer for helping me become the best player and man I am today, without y’all I would not be in this position.”
With Jackson’s commitment, the Mountaineers 2023 recruiting class is ranked 16th nationally and third in the Big 12.
