LSU picked up their fourth pledge in the 2019 class on Tuesday night when Kenyon Jackson committed to the Tigers.
"Truly blessed to say that I am verbally committed to Louisiana State University," Jackson tweeted.
He is a 6-foot-6, 195-pound receiver from Grayson High School in Loganville, Ga., the same school that produced Robert Nkemdiche and four-star 2017 prospects Jamyest Williams (South Carolina) and Chase Rice (Clemson). Jackson told Rivals three weeks ago that LSU, who was the first school to make an offer, was his early favorite.
"LSU has always been my dream school, and after constantly talking to the coaches I can tell they love me," Jackson told HERO Sports on Tuesday night.
Jackson visited Baton Rouge in March and picked the Tigers over offers from Florida, Florida State, Georgia and others. He cited strong relationships with head coach Ed Orgeron and receivers coach Mickey Joseph and the program's development of NFL prospects in his decision.
"LSU is known for putting receivers in the league . . . they told me I had a great chance at playing time."
Jackson is strongly committed to LSU but said he will leave his recruitment open.
