BREAKING: Penn State secures commitment from LB Kari Jackson

On Tuesday, Penn State received a verbal message from linebacker West Bloomfield (MI). Carey Jackson.

Jackson selects the Nittany Lions from a previously named top seven from UCF, Cincinnati, Missouri, Maryland, Wisconsin and Stanford.

At 6ft 2in and 215lbs prospect, Jackson. the junior had 103 tackles (65 solo, 26 for a loss) and three sacks in just seven games.

“I feel like the culture is really different there,” he said. “Coaches have a special relationship with the players and all the players treat each other like family and like brothers.”

Jackson had some early experience with Penn State that helped him get a feel for them when his recruitment was just beginning. He then attended a White Out game during the season and then returned for the January junior day which really helped them establish themselves as the top pick.

“I liked everything,” he said. “Everything was top notch. All the new renovations they’ve done have made everything better at Penn State. All the staff there are wonderful. My family and I were able to speak with the head coach and defense coordinator. sit down with them and my family, talk, talk and keep deepening our relationship.”

The Nittany Lion staff also attended a West Bloomfield game in the fall and watched him play live.

Jackson now becomes the third commitment in the class of 2024 for Penn State.

He is the second linebacker to join the state’s rookie. Anthony Speca.

He is also Michigan’s first allegiance, in which the Nittany Lions have had good recruiting success traditionally and certainly under James Franklin.

Jackson is ranked as one of the top 40 linebackers in the country by 247Sports and a top 10 prospect in the state by the 247Sports Composite.

He played varsity as a freshman at West Bloomfield, then spent his second season at the IMG Academy before returning to West Bloomfield as a junior and receiving state honors.
