Hahnville standout is Tulane-bound

Jha’Quan Jackson is headed to Tulane.

Hahnville wide receiver Jha’Quan Jackson is set to become a member of the Tulane Green Wave.

The senior made that intention known last week when he announced he officially had verbally committed to the school, quickly cementing his next stop after decommitting from SMU in November.

Announcing his commitment via Twitter, Jackson called it the hardest decision he’s made in his life, and thanked all who had recruited him.

“I want to thank the man above for blessing me with my talent because without him none of this would be possible,” Jackson wrote among his comments. “Through the process I have learned a lot. With all that being said, I would like to announce that I will be committing to Tulane University. #Rollwave.”

Jackson has been a jack of all trades for the Tigers. He started his career at Hahnville at his natural position of wide receiver, but was called on to play quarterback for his junior year. There, he helped lead Hahnville to its first state championship game appearance since 2003 and rushed for 1,033 yards and 17 touchdowns while accounting for 23 scores total.

He moved back to wide receiver for his senior season in 2018, though he also saw time at quarterback after transfer starting quarterback Andrew Robison was ruled ineligible. Upon Robison’s reinstatement to the lineup late in the season, Jackson resumed taking the majority of his snaps at receiver, where he developed a strong chemistry with Robison.

Jackson helped Hahnville right the ship after a 1-4 start to the season, as the Tigers won four of their last five regular season matchups and reached round two of the Class 5A playoffs, defeating Walker on the road in round one.
