On June 20, Pike County sophomore receiver Braylin Jackson received a college scholarship offer from Alabama State University.

The 5-foot-8-inch, 150-pound speedster’s offer from ASU was his second total college offer and his first Division I offer. As a freshman, Jackson hauled in 16 catches for 272 yards and one touchdown to go along with 53 tackles, 3.5 tackles-for-loss and five pass breakups on defense.

Jackson made some waves during the spring when he took state runner-up in the Class 3A 100-meter dash as a freshman. Then, Jackson exploded during Pike County’s spring football win over Class 6A Sidney Lanier, when he caught four passes for 113 yards and the game-winning fourth-quarter touchdown.
