GoCoogs Scoop: According to two sources, TCU transfer Bryson Jackson is expected to commit to the University of Houston football program in the coming days. Jackson is a 6′ wide receiver that suffered an unknown injury last year in fall camp. He had surgery in September and redshirted in his only season in Fort Worth.
Jackson was rated the #55 player in the state in the class of 2018 by ESPN. He had 20 P5 offers including Alabama, LSU, Nebraska, Notre Dame, OU, and Texas A&M.
UH offered Jackson a scholarship 3 days after signing day in 2017.
Bryson also plays baseball and intended to be a dual-sport athlete at TCU. But in late April, he announced his intention to transfer from TCU:

After his injury, he did not appear in a baseball game for TCU in 2019. On Twitter, Jackson is following UH baseball coach Todd Whitting and director of operations Cory Van Allen.
When asked in 2017 if he was a good enough athlete to play two sports in college, TCU baseball coach Jim Schlossnagle didn’t hesitate.
“Oh yeah,” Schlossnagle said to the Star-Telegram. “I’ve seen him play.” Schloss also called Jackson “very fast.” LSU also offered him a baseball scholarship.
Jackson started his high school career at Humble before being named first-team all-state at St. Pius X in his junior season. The Houston Chronicle reported that there were tuition problems and he transferred again to Kingwood Park where his younger brother Brenton went to school.
If Jackson does enroll at UH, he will bring a toughness to the outside that the Cougars value. Jackson’s speed allows him to create separation, but perhaps just as important, he’s good at making defenders miss and racking up yards after the catch. Jackson would be yet another coup for WR coach Tyron Carrier.
Unless he receives a waiver from the NCAA to play in 2019, Jackson would have to sit out 2019 and have three years to play. The speedster will give the 2020 team an immediate shot in the arm as the Coogs will lose Keith Corbin and Courtney Lark to graduation after 2019. Junior Marquez Stevenson could potentially test the draft market with another huge year.
Our sources believe Jackson has made it clear to UH coaches that he intends to enroll.
