Just two days before the 2014 season opener, Bobby Petrino and the Louisville football program picked up a commitment from one of the top dual threat quarterbacks in the class of 2015.
On Saturday morning, Boynton Beach, FL., native Lamar Jackson made his verbal commitment public via his Twitter account.
The 6-foot-3, 185-pound, dual threat QB is rated as a four star prospect by Rivals.com.
Jackson is Louisville’s 15th commitment from the 2015 class and the second from the state of Florida.
He’s not the highest ranked prospect to commit to Louisville, but Jackson’s scholarship offer list is impressive to say the least.
Jackson has offers from Auburn, Nebraska, Cincinnati, Ohio State, Mississippi State, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, South Carolina and West Virgnia.
As a junior, Jackson ran for over 1,400 yards and threw for over 1,700 yards.
