Jackson chose Washington over offers from Utah, Cal and UCLA, among many others. He is one of four DBs expected to sign with the Huskies today, including his high school teammate Makell Esteen.
The Californian DB is ranked as a three star prospect in the 247Sports Composite rankings and is also listed as the 41st best cornerback in the country.
