Late 2014 Commit Picks Aggies

The Aggies received their 3rd commit in as many days this morning. Darrell Jackson out of Blinn College committed and is eligible for this upcoming season. Jackson is a 6’5” 225lbs defensive end that redshirted last season. As a result, his enrollment will count against the 2014 recruiting year and he will have four years to play four.

ImageAt Houston Madison high school and during his redshirt year, Jackson played safety. But during his redshirt year at Blinn Jackson, he went from 195lbs. to 225lbs. That kind of weight puts him in the ideal starting range for a weakside defensive end. And with Larry Jackson’s strength and conditioning program, he could most likely get that up another 20lbs-30lbs. Defensive coordinator Mark Snyder has to be thrilled with the prospect of grooming a former safety with a 4.58 second 40-yard dash and a 38” vertical into a pass rusher. If the experiment pays off, it could be a steal for the coaching staff.
