Much like the old Rock ‘n Roll stations used to bellow, “the hits keep coming…”

The Tulane Green Wave continue to roll with the flow in recruiting.

Despite losing three players who decommitted this week, the staff is rebounding by adding talent.

Wide receivers Korey King (Missouri City, Texas) and Dante Wright (Navarre, Florida) backed off of their verbals on December 4th, a day after athlete Freddie Mango from Ferriday, La. changed his mind.

Now wideout Jha’ Quan Jackson, a 5-foot-10, 175 pounder from Hahnville, has given his verbal pledge to Tulane, representing the 10th commitment for the ’19 class.

Originally committed to SMU, Jackson backed away from the pledge in mid-November. He considered offers from Tulane, Houston, Toledo, ULL, LA Tech, Navy, Ball State, West Va., Memphis, ULM, McNeese, Kentucky, UAB, New Mexico, Nicholls, North Texas, New Mexico State, South Alabama and Western Kentucky

Jackson played quarterback at Hahnville, helping the Tigers reach the Class 5A sate championship game as a junior.

As a receiver, he is very fluid and explosive out of cuts. Jackson will go get the ball in the air, makes people miss in space and gains separation. He has very good hands.
