Baldwin Park defensive back and (who knows what on offense) Demetrius Jackson has received an offer from UTEP.
Jackson sat out last season after being ruled ineligible by CIF following his transfer from Duarte. He’ll play defensive back and a myriad of skill positions on offense for the Braves this season.
Earlier this summer, Jackson’s BP teammate Wardell Crutchfield III, aka WC3, committed to UTEP where he’ll play either linebacker or safety. Jackson also has offers from New Mexico St. and Stonybrook.
Aram’s take: Jackson and WC3 could room together at UTEP … that’s probably the Miners’ best selling point. Jackson is expected to wait for bigger and better offers once the season starts. No bad for somebody who didn’t play his all-important junior season.
