Miami Hurricanes: Transfer DL Darrell Jackson visiting this weekend

The Miami Hurricanes are set to get a visit from transfer defensive lineman Darrell Jackson this weekend. This was first reported by Gaby Urrutia of InsideTheU.

Jackson played at Maryland in 2021. He appeared in 13 games, recording 22 total tackles. He had two stand out games in the 2021 season. The first one came against Illinois. In that contest, he recorded six tackles. His second big game came against Virginia Tech. He also recorded six tackles in that contest.

As of this moment, Jackson appears to be leaning towards Florida. Nevertheless, he is going to take a visit to Miami as he tours several schools.

What could he bring to Miami Hurricanes?

Jackson is a space-filler, something that could help Miami in terms of stopping the run. He measures in at six-foot-six, 274 pounds, making him an ideal size to fill gaps. Jackson’s athleticism could help Miami as they look to keep pace with the top teams in the ACC defensively.  In addition, he would give Hurricanes another speed piece on the defensive line.

Miami does have some talent on the defensive line. There are young faces such as Leonard Taylor and Nyjalik Kelly. There are also veterans at the position such as Jacob Lichtenstein and Jared Harrison-Hunte. The latter should be a key piece of the Miami Hurricanes defensive line for this year.

Miami has a nice mix of veteran pieces and young talent right now at the position. Bringing in a player like Jackson could give them a nice bridge piece as the upperclassman exit and the younger players develop.

Although it sounds like Miami is not the favorite in this scenario, it’s a positive development that Jackson is at least taking a visit to Coral Gables. We have all heard about head coach Mario Cristobal’s recruiting pitches. It sounds like he will have to make a strong one here.
