Houston Offers Jefferson’s T.Q. Jackson
One of the top playmakers in all of East Texas has added a new Division I FBS scholarship offer.
Jefferson 2019 wide receiver T.Q. Jackson reported an offer from Houston via Twitter on Wednesday morning.
In addition to the Cougars, Jackson (6-2, 175) also holds offers from Arkansas, SMU, Southern Miss, Texas Tech, and Tulsa.
Jackson is the fifth prospect in East Texas' 2019 recruiting class to be targeted by Houston, joining Newton RB Darwin Barlow, John Tyler WR Ke'Andre Street, Lufkin DT Carl Williams, and Longview OT Marcus Williams.
Last season, Jackson finished with 938 yards and 11 touchdowns. This came after a 1,099-yard effort his sophomore year. He helped the Bulldogs to a 10-2 record in 2017.
Houston just wrapped up its first season under head coach Major Applewhite. The Cougars were 7-5 overall and 5-3 in American Athletic Conference play.
Several players with East Texas roots have chosen Houston as their college destination in recent years. The Cougars signed John Tyler OLB Dekalen Goodson in December of 2017, and have inked six players from the region since 2013.
Jackson, like all juniors, will first be eligible to sign with any team that offers him in December 2018.
