Jackson had a good spring and summer on the camp and 7-on-7 circuit, and felt this was the right program for him to develop as a player, student and person.
"The main reason I chose Buffalo was because of my relationship with the coaches and some of the commits," he said. "Once I got on campus, it was an easy decision.
"They led the MAC in attendance and GPA this year, so the people around campus also had a lot to do with it. Coach Quinn has one goal: degrees and championships."
Jackson will enroll at Buffalo with three years of varsity starting experience, experience that may allow him to compete for the job early in his career.
"Joe Licata will be a senior when arrive on campus, but Coach Quinn made it clear he doesn't redshirt freshmen until after the season. Playing time will really depend on me learning the offense and making plays."
This commitment is significant for, not only Jackson, but also the Mona Shores football program which has risen fast the last few years and has put several players into the college ranks while improving on the field.
"I'm very proud going from the laughing stock in Muskegon to one of the top schools on this side of the state. It's a blessing and I couldn't have done it without Coach Koziak and our athletic director Mr. Portenga. Coach Aaron James also has had the same amount of impact on turning the program also."
Jackson is the fourth known commitment for Buffalo in the 2015 class. He is also their third from the state of Michigan.
