Football Recruiting is reporting that the Jackets have landed their first recruit from the class of 2008 - Wide Receiver Chris Jackson, from Henry County. He's a 6'1" 190lb junior with offers from Florida, Florida State, Notre Dame, South Carolina, Tennessee and Mississippi among others. He has speed in the 4.4 - 4.5 range, is a very good student and known as a high character kid. He started on his high school since his freshman year and played both sides of the ball as well as returning kicks and punts. For the season, he caught about 45 passes in 9 games, and had 7 INT's on defense. He's a hoops player as well by the way................... By the way, in case you are curious, he knows Kyle Jackson - as does everyone it seems. That guy is a maven.

One of his teammates, 6'5" sophomore QB Drew Little, is also interested in Tech, and is gaining interest in the south from some big name schools as well. He threw for about 1900 yards, setting a new Henry County mark - and he's only a sophomore. Keep that name in the back of your mind in future years.

Welcome aboard Chris!!!!
