2019 Junior Highlights

In Meeks’ own opinion, the recruiting interest is a product of his catching ability. While he is confident in his route running and separation speed, he feels as though his consistency when the ball is the air is what will turn even more heads soon enough.
“I can run, but I feel like my best ability is being able to catch the ball,” Meeks said. “If it’s a 6-foot radius of me, I’m catching it.”
Meeks was an underclassman in an experienced Central receiving corps in 2018, but he remained involved in his sophomore year. Meeks reeled in four receptions for 53 yards as the Red Devils captured the 2018 Class 7A state championship.
“He’s a young kid with length,” DuBose said. “Jackson is a very athletic kid. He’s a kid who moves well and runs well. He’s got height. He plays basketball. He jumps and leaps well. Jackson is not an Eddie (Williams) and he’s not a Justyn Ross, but he’s in that category. He’s got (a scholarship offer) now, and there will be a lot to follow.”Opelika Auburn News
“Georgia is definitely my top offer right now,” Meeks said. “I love the fan base. They’re a real die hard fan base. I’m just focused on winning a ring right now, but Georgia is my top school as of now.”
Meeks is waiting for the opportunity to see the Bulldogs in person as soon as possible and get to learn more about their offerings.
“I do plan on taking an official to Georgia,” Meeks said. “I was surprised (by the offer). I don’t know too much about Georgia, but I like them a lot. I’ve been watching Georgia since the AJ Green days.”UGASports.com
