Palm Beach (Fla.) Gardens defensive end Jarrett Jackson committed to Louisville Monday night. The three-star prospect chose the Cardinals over Florida State and a host of others.
He announced his commitment via a video on Twitter.

At 6’5, 260 pounds, Jackson racked up 20 tackles and six sacks as a junior in 2016 despite playing in only just five games because of a season-ending wrist injury. He also doubles as a tight end.
He told the Palm Beach Post in April that U of L quarterback Lamar Jackson was the player at the college or pro level who he most admired. The two met at the Palm Beach Player of the Year Banquet following Jackson’s senior year of high school.
Shout out to Cort Dennison (and Lamar Jackson) for another huge land out of the Sunshine State.
