Jordan Jackson joins his brother Josiah in WVU’s Class of 2023

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — West Virginia’s recruiting Class of 2023 now stands at twelve players after Thursday’s verbal commitment from running back/defensive back Jordan Jackson. He hails from Fairfield High School in southwest Ohio. Jordan is the brother of defensive back Josiah Jackson, who committed to join the Mountaineers in March.

Jordan Jackson is a 3-star, 6-foot, 177-pound athlete. He holds nearly twenty Division I scholarship offers. Most of the schools in the Mid-American Conference were first to offer Jackson. Kent State, Akron, Bowling Green, Western Michigan, Toledo, Eastern Michigan, Miami (OH), Central Michigan, Ohio and Buffalo all offered.

Power five conference offers followed from Maryland, Minnesota, Purdue and Duke. UConn and UMass also presented offers. Jackson received an offer from West Virginia on March 5, six days before Josiah Jackson announced he would become a Mountaineer.

Jordan rushed for 270 yards on 15 carries and scored three touchdowns in Fairfield’s opening-round playoff win over Mason in October.
