Giles Jackson, Wolverine

Oakley (CA) Freedom athlete Giles Jackson committed to Michigan on September 10. He picked the Wolverines over offers from Cal, Florida, Oregon, and USC, among others. I, however, was extremely busy when he committed and didn’t have time to put together a post until now (note: I’m writing this at 4:32 a.m. because I can’t sleep).

Jackson is listed at 5’8″ and 175 lbs., but he lists himself at 5’10” and 185 lbs. on his Hudl page. He ran a 4.43 forty and a 3.85 shuttle, along with doing a 38.5″ vertical, at The Opening Finals back in July. As a junior in 2017, he ran the ball 221 times for 1,586 yards and 22 touchdowns. He also caught 21 passes for 324 yards and 5 scores.

ESPN: 3-star, 79 grade, #42 ATH
Rivals: 3-star, 5.6 grade, #7 APB
247 Sports: 4-star, 91 grade, #31 WR, #216 overall

Hit the jump for more on Jackson’s commitment.

Oakland (CA) Freedom running back Giles Jackson was offered by Michigan. He’s a 5’8″, 175 lb. prospect with offers from Oregon, UCLA, and USC, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #8 all-purpose back, and #727 overall. He claims a 4.53 forty, a 4.01 shuttle, a 35″ vertical, and a 265 lb. bench press. He took an official visit to Michigan this past weekend, just a couple days after being offered by the Wolverines.

Dunlap (IL) Dunlap tight end Josiah Miamen was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’4″, 225-pounder with offers from Illinois, Iowa, Northwestern, Notre Dame, and Penn State, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #64 weakside end, and #912 overall, though the Wolverines are looking at him as a tight end. He earned his offer at Michigan’s camp a week ago, and then he took an unofficial visit this past weekend. Steve Wiltfong subsequently put in a crystal ball pick for Michigan.
