After taking a visit to the Forty Acres this weekend for Junior Day, Richmond Foster wide receiver Cody Jackson left Austin with a scholarship offer from the University of Texas.

Jackson is currently listed at 6’0, 170-pounds and has a wingspan of 75.00 inches, per 247Sports. With this offer, Jackson is now up to 14 total collegiate offers — Texas, Michigan, Oklahoma, LSU, TCU, and Oregon are among the top programs to offer Jackson.

Jackson began his high school career as a quarterback last season for Richmond Foster’s freshman team. The transition over to wide receiver was “tough and an adjustment,” Jackson said.

Nevertheless, he’s transitioned impressively. As a sophomore on varsity, Jackson totaled 1,053 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns on 57 receptions. He also rushed for 122 yards on 13 carries. After looking at Jackson’s tape, he possesses similarities to Devin Duvernay with his size and as a speedy deep threat.

Jackson also plays defensive back and runs track for his high school. Current Oklahoma junior wide receiver CeeDee Lamb played his high school football at Richmond Foster. Lincoln Riley and the Sooners offered Jackson back in November, and are currently considered to be the frontrunner in his recruitment.

Jackson is unranked at this time, per the 247Sports Composite.
