Virginia Tech is continuing their spring evaluations with plenty of 2023 recruits that they are starting to show interest in including 2023 three-star CB Jordan Jackson out of Fairfield, OH. Jackson told us that he spoke recently with OL coach Joe Rudolph who is leading Tech's recruiting in Rust Belt states like Ohio.
"I just talked to coach (Joe) Rudolph on Friday and he said he’ll be in touch with me soon and hopefully get me up to Virginia Tech," Jackson said.
His conversation with Joe Rudolph last week went well as a whole as he shared with us.
"Conversation went great especially for it being my first time talking to him. It felt I had already talked to him before," Jackson said.
Tech's interest in Jackson comes as he's built up a strong offer list that includes the following schools.
- ACC: Duke
- Big 10: Maryland, Minnesota, Purdue
- Big 12: West Virginia
- MAC: Akron, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Kent State, Miami (OH), Ohio, Toledo, Western Michigan
- FBS Independents: UCONN, UMass
Jackson that in addition to the Hokies, he is receiving interest from Northwestern and Louisville currently. That shouldn't come as a surprise given the athletic traits he's showing playing both cornerback and running back in high school though Tech is recruiting him at CB.
Of course, time is of the essence in the recruitment of Jackson for those who haven't offered as he has two official visits coming up. The first one is to West Virginia with his brother Josiah Jackson who is currently committed to the Mountaineers on the first weekend of June. He plans to follow that trip with an official visit to Purdue.
Jackson also told us that he is looking at making a decision either "during the season" or in "mid June" making it important for Tech to not only get Jackson on campus, but also decide whether to pursue him or not.
Keep an eye on Jordan Jackson as Virginia Tech looks to get him on campus and decide whether to extend an offer or not.
