RAYSHAD JACKSON

SCHOOL: Norland High School

HOMETOWN: Miami, FL

HEIGHT: 6’1”

WEIGHT: 205

POSITION: Linebacker

RIVALS RANKING: 2 stars

RECRUITED BY: Randy Shannon

NOTABLE: Jackson was a carry over recruit from Shannon’s time at Arkansas. Though Florida and Arkansas were his only notable offers, Jackson’s tape still shows an explosive hybrid linebacker, the likes of which have become synonymous with Florida defense.

QUOTABLE: “Coach McElwain jumped up and gave me a hug and a high five,” Jackson said of his commitment. “He said welcome to the club and to the Florida community. He was so happy when I told him I was going to be a Gator…Coach Shannon said that he’s going to make me a better player at linebacker,” Jackson said. “He said he’s going to make me better by working on my fundamentals as a linebacker and helping me improve in drills. He says that I’m going to be a good outside linebacker at Florida.”
