Notre Dame has made the final five for Omaha (Neb.) Burke linebacker Devon Jackson. The Fighting Irish made his top group along with Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Miami and Arizona State.
Jackson is a former teammate of current Notre Dame freshman wide receiver Xavier Watts. The former teammates have certainly talked about the Fighting Irish program.
“They’re high on my list,” Jackson said back in the fall. “My former teammate, [freshman wide receiver] Xavier Watts, tells me good stuff about the coaches and how much they want me to come to campus. It will be one of my first trips after the dead period.”
Jackson is ranked as the nation's No. 51 overall player in the country according to ESPN. He ranks No. 137 overall in the 247Sports composite rankings, and is the No. 11 outside linebacker in the country.
More of an edge rusher for Burke, Jackson projects as more of an off-ball linebacker at the next level. The 6-2, 200-pound linebacker also has offers from Michigan, Auburn, Nebraska, Missouri, Iowa, Iowa State, Michigan State, Kansas State, Minnesota, Arizona State, Indiana and Illinois.
