The Boling product will likely stay in state after decommitting from the Crimson Tide on Tuesday evening.

In a matter of minutes, Boling athlete Vernon Jackson will sign with the school of his choice, but it won’t be the Alabama Crimson Tide, according to SEC Country.

A commitment watch on his 247Sports profile indicates that he will decide at 7 p.m. CT.

The 6’3, 240-pound high school quarterback committed to the Crimson Tide in the middle of September, but left his options open by declining to sign during the early period. In recent weeks, Jackson took official visits to TCU, Texas A&M, and Texas, the three schools that seemingly remain in the mix after Jackson declined to sign early on National Signing Day.

Though the Longhorns and the Horned Frogs are still in the mix, the Aggies received the last visit and a flurry of 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions in recent days. On Wednesday afternoon, however, Texas picked up a prediction.

Texas has five defensive line signees after adding another on Wednesday in Conroe Oak Ridge defensive end Joseph Ossai, so there’s not a pressing need for Jackson. Still, it seems as if there is room for the Boling product.

Jackson is a consensus four-star prospect ranked as the No. 358 prospect overall, the No. 21 athlete, and the No. 48 player in Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
