Better Know A Dude 2015: #3 Wide Receiver Harrison Jackson

Is the injured wide receiver the x-factor for the Eagles?

Name: Harrison Jackson

Position: Wide Receiver

Year: Senior

Height: 6-foot-2

Weight: 204 lbs.

Hometown: Round Hill, VA

High School: Loudoun Valley

2014: Did not play due to injury

2013 Stats: Jackson didn't see a ton of balls as Chase Rettig's third option, but then again, nobody really saw a ton of passes besides Alex Amidon. He did elevate to the second option in the passing game for a couple of games after Spiffy Evans went down, but he still didn't catch many footballs. In total, he grabbed five balls for under 50 yards, including one touchdown against New Mexico State (thank God for hucka chucka football, right?). During that Aggie game, though, he was drilled and collapsed on the sideline, eventually hospitalized with lung injuries.

2015 Projections: This year could be a big year for Harrison. In 2013 he started to show that he could be an ACC receiver, but the injury happened. Along with Bobby Swigert he is the most experienced wide receiver on the team. If he gels well with Darius Wade and Todd Fitch's offense he could easily be WR1 or WR2 on the depth chart.

2015 Over/Under: 25 catches

What The Recruiters Say: Jackson got three stars from but was just a two-star recruit out of Loudoun Valley High School, per Yahoo Sports.  Recruited by Mike Siravo.
