Woodford County offensive lineman Drake Jackson earned a scholarship offer from Alabama during a campus visit over the weekend.
Jackson — a 6-foot-2, 290-pound prospect — is a top UK target and widely considered to be the No. 1 in-state player in the class of 2016. 247Sports ranks him as the No. 1 offensive center in the class and the No. 57 overall prospect for 2016. ESPN also has Jackson as the top 2016 center in the country.
He’s already visited UK several times in the past few months, and the Wildcats have been viewed as the early favorite in his recruitment.
