The first wide receiver in the class of 2019 committed to Georgia Southern Friday morning over several big name schools. Milton Jackson from Coffee County High School in Douglas, Georgia had offers from Georgia Tech, Mississippi State and Purdue, among others, but chose to stay closer to home.

The three star receiver is the 133rd best player in Georgia according to 247Sports and his power and competitiveness gives him that ranking. At 5’11” and 185 pounds, Jackson’s best attribute is his footwork. The receiver is easily able to create space and use the space to its fullest potential by making plays on the sideline.
