    The 2022 four-star defensive end has been 50-50 on deciding between Oklahoma and Ohio State since July, according to his father, Kenyatta Jackson Sr. Jackson Sr. also said back in July a commitment could come “between tomorrow and the end of the year.”

    On Friday, Jackson Sr. told Eleven Warriors his son could be committed to one of those two schools before November, a timeline that’s contingent on the family getting a chance to attend an Oklahoma game before the month concludes. Whenever Jackson Jr. makes it to Norman to attend a Sooner game, Jackson Sr. estimates he’ll announce a verbal commitment shortly afterward once the family returns home.

    Jackson Jr. had a visit to Oklahoma penciled in for Sept. 11, but the family wasn’t able to make it. The duo are making it a priority to visit Oklahoma a second time before deciding between the Buckeyes and the Sooners.

    The younger Jackson took official visits to both Oklahoma and Ohio State over the summer, but also visited OSU a separate time in an unofficial capacity.

    “I’m trying to make it my business to make (a visit to Oklahoma) happen as soon as possible,” Jackson Sr. said. “We’ve been to Ohio State twice now, so the focus is on trying to catch a game at Oklahoma as soon as possible. Whatever happens after that, happens. Everything is still 50-50.”

    Oklahoma plays at home twice in October: Oct. 16 against TCU and Oct. 30 against Texas Tech. While Oklahoma will likely get the final visit before Jackson Jr. makes a decision, Jackson Sr. emphasized the Sooners are not ahead of the Buckeyes and everything is still at a dead heat.

    If Jackson does in fact commit to Ohio State, it would give the Buckeyes’ their first defensive line commit in the 2022 class as the 15th member overall. Jackson would also become the seventh top-100 player in the group and the third player from the Sunshine State — joining Kye Stokes and Ryan Turner as a trio of Florida natives. It has been a bit odd for Larry Johnson to not yet have a player locked in among his position group this late in a cycle, but getting things rolling with Jackson would be a great step in the right direction.

    Ranked as the 78th best player in the country and the seventh best edge rusher for his class, Jackson would be a huge addition as well as a much needed player to get the ball rolling again for the 2022 class as this staff looks to close out another top caliber cycle. All signs right now look to be very pro-Buckeyes, and that’s just what this class needs.

    With his current ranking and the 247Sports class calculator, a commitment from Jackson would move Ohio State’s current seventh-ranked class up into the No. 5 spot overall, just passing Oregon and Notre Dame. More importantly, this would only be commitment 15. The sole reason the Buckeyes would be sitting at fifth and not higher is just due to quantity of committed players. Ohio State would have the highest per player ranking, and in the end that’s probably the most important aspect to consider when talking national class standings.

    The wait for the next BOOOOM looks to be coming near an end.

    Looking forward to seeing him play in scarlet and gray! Maybe a Jaylen Holmes type of player?
