West Virginia will have no shortage of Jacksons in its football recruiting class of 2023.
Defensive back \ running back Jordan Jackson, twin brother of current Class of 2023 commit Josiah Jackson, committed to the Mountaineer program on Thursday afternoon. Joining South Carolina defensive lineman Cam Jackson (no relation), the trio makes up one fourth of WVU’s current recruiting class.

Jordan Jackson has primarily played on defense during his career, but moved to running back during the second half of the 2021 campaign. His speed and elusiveness made him a natural at that position, but he’ll begin his West Virginna career at cornerback, where he can employ his good reaction skills and quick responses in defending Big 12 receivers.
Jordan had offers from most of the MAC, including Akron, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Eastern Michigan, Central Michigan, Western Michigan, Ohio and Toledo. Power 5 offers came from Maryland, Minnesota, Purdue and WVU.
At cornerback, Jordan displays a very smooth backpedal, and does a good job in transitioning into a sprint against deep routes. His field vision is also sound, and he gets good jumps on the ball by keeping more than his man in his sights as plays develop.
Jordan is the 12th member of WVU’s football class of 2023.
