Yesterday, we told you heralded Gibbs DE Tim Jackson, who lists North Carolina and Wake Forest as his favorites, would make his commitment Friday.
Now we know the time and place -- 2 p.m. at the Gibbs High library.
Stay tuned; we’ll be blogging live from Jackson’s announcement. And who knows, perhaps we can even get Jackson to answer a few questions from you all.
To recap what we wrote Tuesday:
“Wake and UNC are tied right now,” Jackson said. “They’ve been recruiting me for awhile. Wake has a family atmosphere. They treat people well. UNC has been doing some good things. Defensively (the Tar Heels) are very good and they’re going to be better next year.”
The 6-foot-5, 220-pound standout also is considering Mississippi State (he visited the Bulldogs last weekend), but that program is a longshot, he said.
At one time, Stanford also was in the mix.
But Jackson dropped the Cardinal earlier this month after assistant D.J. Durkin, his primary recruiter, bolted for Florida.
