On Saturday, Tennessee garnered a commitment from tailback Ebony Jackson. He’s a standout from Marietta, GA who committed to the Vols while on UT’s campus for a visit.

All of the stargazers may shrug their shoulders when initially looking at his profile. He is a middle of the road three-star prospect, but it’s important to point out that we are still early in the process for the 2020 class and the current ratings are far from final. Some of the recruiting services are still in the earlier stages of evaluations for a number of prospects and Jackson is one of those guys.

In addition to Tennessee, Jackeon holds offers from Ole Miss and East Carolina. He has solid size for a tailback who still has a year of high school remaining. He is around 6-foot-1 and weighs in at about 205 pounds. It is possible he could still pack on some extra weight and maintain his speed.

And Jackson definitely possesses quickness and agility. He is a champion runner in the 5A Georgia 100-meter and 200-meter events. He has been clocked at 10.57 seconds in the 100 meters. Keep an eye out because going forward, you may see Jackson’s stock go way up.
