The Pitt football team lost a member of their Class of 2019.
Florida safety Khadry Jackson announced this morning via Twitter that he was de-committing from the Panthers.
This news comes as a surprise as the Pitt coaches just visited Jackson last week on their tour of Florida commitments.
Immediately after the news, 247 Sports forecasts Jackson to sign with North Carolina and new head coach Mack Brown. Aside from Pitt, Jackson also holds offers from Iowa State, Maryland, Missouri, North Carolina State, Nebraska, North Carolina, Rutgers, Central Florida and South Florida.
With this news, Pitt now stands at 19 verbal commitments. It’ll be interesting to see where Narduzzi looks to use this scholarship and whether it’ll go to another linebacker/safety or towards a different position.
Jackson (6’2″, 190) plays safety in high school but was being projected to possibly play linebacker in Pitt’s defensive scheme.
Jackson joins tight end Travis Koontz as players that have de-committed from Pitt’s Class of 2019.
