Northwestern has landed another safety for its Class of 2017 recruiting class, adding safety Bryce Jackson out of Denton, TX (Guyer HS). Jackson tweeted out his commitment on Wednesday afternoon.
Jackson is a three-star prospect, and he received a composite score of .8166 from 247 Sports. (NOTE: He was initially unrated when he signed with Northwestern.) He's rated as the 88th-best safety nationwide and 173rd-best player in Texas in the class of 2017.
Jackson boasted offers from Nevada and Wake Forest according to 247, and he tweeted out on March 31 that he had received an offer from Navy. Duke had expressed interest in the 6-foot-1, 179-pound safety, according to 247.
Jackson joins a strong 2017 class that includes six defensive players and now two safeties. Austin Hiller, also out of Texas, committed on March 24. Northwestern's class now includes five players from The Lone Star State.
Jackson's junior year highlights are above.
