BYU Football Recruiting: 2017 RB Jackson McChesney signs with the Cougars

Student Sports

Jackson McChesney, a 6-foot, 190-pound RB prospect out of Lone Peak High School in Alpine, UT has signed a National Letter of Intent to play football for BYU.

McChesney was offered a scholarship in late summer of 2015 by Bronco Mendenhall and committed at that time. Schools stopped seriously recruiting him due to his early commitment, but at the time of his commitment he was also being recruited by Utah and Utah State.

McChesney is a three-star prospect with a composite rating of 85.38 according to the 247Sports Composite. That rating makes him the 13th-ranked recruit in the state overall.

Jackson McChesney is listed as a running back, but his highlight reel shows some serious versatility on the offensive side of the ball. He has good hands coming out of the backfield, and even lines up as a slot receiver on some plays. He also returned kickoffs for Lone Peak very successfully. His speed stands out on film and on the track, as he ran a sub 4.46 40 at the Sparq combine. McChesney will serve an LDS mission before enrolling at BYU for the 2019 season.

Here are McChesney’s highlights from the 2016 season:
