Can't find much on him, but he has good size and seems to be a "sack master".

He had offers from Duke, Tulane, GA State, and JMU.

Right you are smurf. Not very good research on my part, but I did find out today that he did have a total of 17 offers, including 4 FBS and about half of the SoCon. One of his high school coaches tweeted that "Samford has hit the lottery in getting this guy." Looks like our coaches continue to do a super job of recruiting.

I only knew because I messaged Brian McLaughlin on Twitter and asked him about the kid's other offers.

Oh, forgot to mention that Harvard and some other Ivy League Teams also offered, so I would think that he is also excellent in the classroom. Also Brian McLaughlin of Hero Sports just said that(paraphrased), "Samford Football Staff must be very happy today in landing a commitment from Nick Jackson."
Sure hope nothing changes in the next couple of weeks, as more of the Big Boys sometimes come around sniffing.

Smurf, you are always one step ahead of me. 8-)
