Florida Edge Rusher Commits to Vols

Last weekend, the Vols picked up a commitment from defensive tackle Isaac Washington in the 2021 class while he was on a visit to Tennessee’s campus. This Saturday, another 2021 prospect committed to the Vols while in Knoxville for a Junior Day event.

Darrell Jackson, a defensive end/pass rusher who plays for Gadsden County in Quincy, Florida, tweeted out his commitment to Tennessee while on campus for a visit on Saturday afternoon.

Right now, Jackson isn’t rated by recruiting services, and he’s just started to get attention after playing football for the first time in high school this past season. Jackson measures in at 6-foot-6, 235 pounds and plays primarily as a defensive end, but he’s also lined up at defensive tackle in high school.

In the month of January, Jackson picked up offers from Bethune Cookman and Maryland, with the Terrapins giving him his first official Power Five offer. Tennessee invited him to a Junior Day event on January 22nd, and he attended this weekend. He’s also received interest from Virginia Tech and other schools.

Interestingly, Jackson’s high school teammate and 2021 Florida State commit Joshua Farmer and Jackson have referred to themselves as a “package deal” on social media several times, but Jackson elected to commit to Tennessee on Saturday. Farmer committed to the Seminoles on January 25th.

For this past year being his first season of high school football, Jackson shows off a lot of natural ability on his highlight film. He has some solid instincts and is good in stopping the run especially. He’s long, athletic, and has a lot of upside. He’s very raw, but there’s a lot of potential on his film.

Tennessee now has six commits in the 2021 class with Jackson’s pledge. He joins four-star wide receiver Jordan Mosley, three-star athlete Nate Evans, three-star cornerback Jay Jones, three-star defensive tackle Isaac Washington, and three-star running back/athlete Elijah Howard in UT’s 2021 class.
