Penn State gets verbal commitment from 4-star LB

Penn State at one time was considered linebacker university and it seems they are working their way back towards that distinction.

On Tuesday, four-star linebacker Kari Jackson announced his verbal commitment to Penn State’s Class of 2024 via Twitter. Jackson is the third player to commit to the Nittany Lions in the 2024 recruiting cycle.

Jackson joins offensive lineman Cooper Cousins and linebacker Anthony Speca in the 2024 class. James Franklin’s 2024 class currently ranks 21st in 2024 with it being super early to where Penn State has a strong chance to enter the top ten as they usually do. Jackson did commit to Penn State over conference rivals Wisconsin and Maryland which is always a nice thing to see from a coaching staff and gives the fans a boost and reminder that these teams are always competing regardless of the month in the calendar year.

Jackson will be coming from West Bloomfield, Michigan which is also a nice get considering he took him out of the state that has two rival Big Ten teams. Despite the get of Jackson though, the Nittany Lions still are behind Michigan, Iowa, Ohio State, and Michigan State in the 2024 class rankings mentioned above.

He is the ninth-ranked player in the state of Michigan and ranks 30th overall as a linebacker across the country based on his 247 Sports recruiting profile.
