Hutchinson Community College running back Dezmon Jackson reported an Oklahoma State offer this week and is planning an official visit this weekend to Stillwater.
Jackson, an unranked prospect from El Dorado, Ark., has flown under the radar to this point but has reported offers over the past month from Kansas State, OSU, Western Kentucky and Utah. Chattanooga, Grambling, Ohio and South Dakota have also offered.
“I came to Hutchinson straight out of high school,” Jackson told 247Sports this week. “It has been a great experience. I’m really looking forward to getting back to Oklahoma State and seeing all of it. I was there with my teammate on on unofficial visit for the Texas Tech game. I am very high on Oklahoma State.”
Running back has long been a need for OSU in the 2019 recruiting class, but the need has only been amplified with Justice Hill declaring for the NFL Draft and J.D. King opting to transfer to a run-heavy offense at Georgia Southern over the last month.
Jackson is one of several targets in the hopper for OSU in the cycle, and though he’s the most recent offer, he’s certainly not the only prospect OSU is eyeing as a potential take. The Cowboys coaching staff is also squarely in the mix for four-star Deondrick Glass, and they continue to work on flipping TCU pledge Darwin Barlow as the Dec. 19 early signing date nears.
Currently Kansas State leads for Jackson in the 247Sports crystal ball, but OSU’s late interest — coupled with Bill Snyder’s retirement — could tilt his recruitment on its head.
