Texas Tech received their 10th commitment of the 2021 class in offensive tackle Jacoby Jackson.

RedRaiderSports’ Ben Golan had a bit on Jackson, who was originally a TCU commit, his father played running back at TCU back in the day, and I think he decommitted in June.
Jackson’s commitment is huge for the Red Raiders in many ways. Tech beat out several conference opponents for him, and he becomes the second offensive lineman of the 2021 class in need of linemen. Jackson joins Argyle’s Jack Tucker on the commitment list.
Jackson, listed at 6-foot-6, 315 pounds, is built like a prototypical left tackle but he can play anywhere on the line.
If you’ve been saying that Texas Tech needs a big ol’ offensive tackle then you’ get your wish. Jacoby Jackson is a huge offensive tackle, already has the size. Jackson looks really raw, but when you have the frame, that much may not matter. The rest can be molded. Jackson is already at the size a typical college offensive lineman. I think Jackson needs to work on his footwork and striking defenders, but at this point of his high school career, he’s dominating most, if not all defensive linemen. And the offer list is incredibly impressive and these are always a bit deceiving, but I do think that Jackson was down to some Big 12 opponents, so it should feel good to get a commitment from conference foes.
