recruit757 Fab 30: Jackson Morgan – Cox HS #25
by Andy Hilton, recruit757
I’ve had the pleasure of watching this kid grow up.
As the son of a coach and former player, it was natural for our #25 athlete to play football. He’s seen his share of struggles, put in a ton of work, and now he’s finally seeing that hard work pay off.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in the 757. We’ve scoured the region for talent for almost ten years now, keeping an eye on the best of the best, but also looking for opportunities to connect athlete and high school programs with college coaches. Coming in as the 25th best senior prospect region-wide is Cox High School fullback and defensive lineman Jackson Morgan.

Jackson Morgan puts weight room work in at his Dad’s gym, Chix Beach Gym in Virginia Beach. He proved his strength at the Ultimate Recruit Clash of the Titans this April when he won the Strongest Man competition by pumping out 22 bench press reps at 225 pounds. He also took home the hardware as the TE/FB MVP at the camp.
In his junior season, Jackson averaged 4.9 yards per carry and rushed for nearly 500 yards as a fullback in the triple option offense at Cox. In addition to his prowess on the offensive side of the ball, in 2016, Morgan was selected as a Second Team All-District defensive lineman for his play at defensive tackle, a position where he’s undersized but can beat offensive linemen with his speed, strength and football smarts.
Morgan has college coaches ready to pull the trigger on scholarship offers. It may simply take one to come off the fence for others to follow suit. Jackson has camped at Cornell, Princeton, Yale, William and Mary, and Davidson this summer. He took a spring visit to the Air Force Academy and is fielding interest there as well.
