The first prospect to commit to the Class of 2024 from Georgia, Antione Jackson, has announced that he will reverse his commitment from the Bulldogs to the Miami Hurricanes.
The 6-foot-0, 180-pound defensive back is listed as a safety by 247Sports, but can also play cornerback. Jackson is a young and promising prospect. However, since it was still so early in the process for the 2024 prospect, the Hurricanes were able to use it to their advantage by returning an in-state rookie for them away from Georgia.
After enlisting in March, Jackson became Georgia’s only enlistment in the 2024 class and now becomes the first to leave that class.
Jackson teased the announcement earlier in the week with a series of tweets following an interview he did with SI’s All Hurricanes. Jackson told SI’s All Hurricanes what appeals to him about the University of Miami, also adding at the time that the Hurricanes were the biggest threat to Georgia when recruiting him.
“Just them being just down the street from my house and what they’re trying to build, what they’re trying to put together. Then the love they show on top of that. That’s a plus.
