Jackson came down to Pitt for an unofficial visit on Sunday, where he worked out once again for the Pitt coaching staff. Unofficially, he ran a 4.46, good enough to earn the offer.
He is coming off a productive 2013 season, where he burst on the scene with over 2,000 yards of total offense, playing as a dual-threat quarterback. He will come to Pitt on defense, as a cornerback.
This could be the first good news of the day for Pitt, as Timber Creek (NJ) standout Neal Nelson is announcing his college decision at 2:30 this afternoon. He is expected to decide between Pitt and Central Florida.
Stay tuned for more on Jackson's commitment to Pitt.
