2023 Safety prospect Kylin Jackson announces commitment date

·2 min read

Texas A&M is coming off by far its most important recruiting weekend, as the annual recruiting pool party took place Saturday afternoon. Out of the over 20 prospects in the 2023 class attending the party, was one of the top safety prospects in the class, Zachary, Louisiana native Kylin Jackson. Jackson recently announced he plans to announce his on August 8th, with his final 4 school list including Michigan, Oregon, LSU, and Texas A&M.

As the 11th-ranked safety prospect in the class and a current favorite to land with LSU according to On3, Jackson has taken visits to Baton Rouge and College Station including his time with the Aggies over the weekend.

In a scouting report conducted by On3, Jackson’s skills on the field are examined:

State champion defensive back as a junior for undefeated Zachary (LA) who can plant and drive downhill as well as cover tight ends and running backs in the slot. Stands over 6-foot-2, 195 pounds with room to grow and fill out naturally. Striker as a tackler who looks to make plays in the backfield. Comfortable in coverage but not necessarily his strong suit. Needs to quicken his feet and loosen his hips in order to excel in coverage against more dynamic slot options. Has the size and frame to excel working in the box and covering jumbo slots at the next level. If he can become more dynamic and explosive in college then he could see his name appear on more draft boards once the time comes.

Kylin Jackson would help solidify the back end of the defense in the 2023 class, joining current defensive back commits Bravion Rogers and Jayvon Thomas. Here’s to hoping the recruiting pool party works its magic!
