2018 three-star wide receiver Shedrick Jackson commits to Auburn

If the last name sounds familiar... it should.

More than 20 years after Bo Jackson made spectators’ jaws drop at Auburn, another Jackson will be dressing up for the Tigers in 2018.

Bo’s nephew, Shedrick Jackson, announced his commitment via YouTube Monday.


The 6-foot-2, 200 pound 3-star wide receiver hails from Hoover, Alabama. Last season, the class of 2018 receiver led Hoover to the 7A State Championship and he is a main factor in why the Bucs are heavy favorites this year once again.

Although Jackson isn’t the type of athlete that his uncle is, he is still a good addition to the Tigers’ 2018 class.

During his junior year of high school, Jackson caught 43 passes for 664 yards and three touchdowns. Jackson chose Auburn, which offered him earlier this spring, over Mississippi State, Missouri, Memphis and Georgia Tech.

Jackson is the seventh commitment for the Tigers.
