Houston Christian offensive tackle Donovan Jackson is seeing his recruiting interest start the pop. The 2021 product has only received five offers at this point but they’re all pretty big offers. LSU, Memphis, Ohio State, Tennessee, and now Oklahoma have all jumped into the mix to try and persuade Jackson to make a commitment.
Memphis was the first team to make an offer, on July 24th, and Ohio State came through on the very next day. Tennessee’s offer came on September 2nd and LSU offered on the 23rd. Now Oklahoma is in on the 6-4/270 prospect and natural question is, what are the chances of the Sooners landing him?

Thought to be an initial lean towards LSU, it’s important to keep in mind that Oklahoma is going to sign three more classes before he’s even eligible to sign a Letter of Intent. Secondly, he’s only received five offers and, based on the magnitude of the programs that are interested in him, you can bet others will be coming in on him as well.
It’s thought that Texas A&M will be the next to offer which would mark the third SEC school. When the Aggies get involved it could be a game changer early on in his recruiting process because of the proximity to his hometown of Houston.
Obviously that doesn’t answer the question about Oklahoma, but the reality of the situation is that he’s just a freshman and there’s a lot of football to be played before this kid makes a decision.
