Georgia Tech commit JaQuez Jackson withdraws pledge

Less than a week after becoming Georgia Tech’s first openly known committed player, Peach County High linebacker JaQuez Jackson withdrew his commitment.

Jackson posted a statement on his Twitter account Saturday evening saying that he had come to believe that he had made his decision too early in the recruiting process and wanted to re-open his recruitment. Jackson, rated a 3-star prospect by 247 Sports, said that Tech remained a top school.

“I may have let a lot of people down and to those people I am sorry,” he wrote.

Jackson committed to Tech last Sunday. He also holds offers from the likes of Iowa, West Virginia, Wake Forest, Maryland and Rutgers.

Since his commitment, two other prospects (Thomasville High linebacker Charlie Thomas and Prince Avenue Christian lineman Harrison Jump) committed and the January commitment of another player, wide receiver P.J. Harris of Newnan High, became publicly known.
