Miami’s Satterwhite commits to KU football
Jackson Satterwhite made the announcement via Twitter Thursday.
MIAMI, Okla. – Miami High School senior Jackson Satterwhite is headed to Lawrence, Kansas next season to continue his football career with the Kansas Jayhawks.
Satterwhite made the announcement via Twitter on Thursday afternoon.
“What I have been looking for throughout my recruitment process is for coaches who want me and believe in me,” Satterwhite says, “Coach Meadows (KU offensive line coach) showed me all of that. After the conversation with coach Miles and some of the other offensive staff, I just knew it was right.”
Satterwhite had received the offer to play for Kansas on Wednesday. It took him less than 24 hours to make the decision to join the KU program.
“I have been in communication with them for a couple weeks,” he adds, “We felt it was a great fit before they even offered. I knew that if they pulled the trigger on me that I would go ahead and commit pretty quick.”
Satterwhite is expected to play on the offensive line for the Jayhawks. He’s currently listed at 6-5, 285 pounds.
“I’m willing to play wherever they want me,” Satterwhite says, “I do expect to play offensive tackle or guard, but wherever they put me, I’ll work to be the best I can be at that spot. Whatever is best for me to help the team.”
His official visit is scheduled for the end of January.
While making the jump from high school to NCAA Division I football can be intimidating, Satterwhite says he’s ready to take advantage of the opportunity.
“To be honest, I’m more excited for the opportunity than I am nervous,” he adds, “I’m looking forward to being a Jayhawk. I just want to learn the system, learn my role on the team and do whatever I can to help make the team better. I want to develop into the best offensive lineman I can be.”
