TCU has officially secured a 3-star wide receiver commit out of Choctaw, Oklahoma.
Chase Jackson has been on the Frog’s radar for quite some time now considering he verbally committed back in May, but things were made official this Wednesday as he signed his National Letter of Intent at the earliest opportunity.
247sports gives Jackson a composite rating of 86.4, making him the 110th ranked wide receiver in the nation and the 12th highest rated recruit coming out of Oklahoma.
The 6’2, 170 pound receiver also had offers from Indiana, Minnesota, New Mexico, and others, but joining TCU’s young and talented receiver room was the obvious choice. Jackson received his offer from TCU on April 10th, marking his first offer from a power 5 school.
“It excited me more than anything because TCU has been one of my dream schools my whole life,” Jackson said in an interview with Horned Frog Blitz on April 11.
Unfortunately, Jackson had to miss his entire senior season and undergo surgery after fracturing his patella in Choctaw High School’s season opener, but we still have a glimpse of what he’ll bring to the Carter in 2021.
In his junior season, Jackson hauled in 56 receptions for 1,342 yards and 17 total touchdowns while helping his team to an 8-4 record and Class 6A semifinal appearance. Here are his highlights from that year:
It’s easy to see why Doug Meacham wanted to bring this guy on board, Jackson should fit in perfectly with TCU’s young receiving core. He will be playing alongside guys like Quentin Johnston, Blair Conwright, Derius Davis, and Taye Barber. Count this as yet another weapon in Max Duggan’s arsenal, Big 12 defenses should be scared.
Welcome to the Frog fam, Chase!
