Giles Jackson is a bad man and he knows it.
The 4-star recruit absolutely destroyed the competition during his junior season at Freedom High School in Oakley, California. In fact, he put up 2,247 all-purpose yards and scored 28 touchdowns.
On September 10, Jackson revealed that he was committing to the University of Michigan, where he plans to dominate.
In a recent interview, with The Wolverine Lounge, Jackson talked about why he chose Michigan, who was his biggest influence, and at the end, he called his shot.
Q: What gave Michigan the edge over other schools when you decided it was time to commit?
A: “I felt like it was home, and I felt like I would be more successful outside of football if I went to Michigan.”
Q: What (or who) was the biggest influence throughout your recruiting process and decision?
A: “I would probably say Cade (McNamara, Michigan QB commit), who is my 7on7 quarterback. We have a great relationship and he’s always been in my ear about Michigan.”
Q: What excites you most about becoming part of the Michigan football family?
A: “One major factor for me is that the level of competition excites me a lot. I’ll be playing against some of the top schools in the country.”
Q: What position do you feel will suit you best in college?
A: “I would say wide receiver fits me best because of my route running and ability to catch the football.”
Q: What are your thoughts on the Dax Hill signing?
A: “I was extremely excited when Dax announced his decision. We talked a lot at the Opening and we both liked Michigan.”
Oh yeah, and Jackson had one other thing to say, Wolverine fans.
“I will be a playmaker in Ann Arbor. You can bet on that.”
