Hardin County Baseball Star Signs with Union

Savannah, Tenn. - 5/29/2002 - Union University added on of the top high school baseball players in West Tennessee on Tuesday when they signed Brandon Jackson. Jackson becomes the third Hardin County player to join the Bulldogs in two years.

Union’s head coach Andy Rushing, declares the 5-foot-8 Jackson as “the best hitter out of West Tennessee since Jeff Wyatt”. Wyatt, as you know, set numerous records during his career as a Bulldog.

Jackson, a TPX All-America preseason pick, hit .477 with five homeruns and 24 RBI last year. His junior season was even better at Hardin County as he hit .533 with 16 homeruns and 52 RBI. Jackson has been an all-district, all-region, and all-state performer during his high school career. He played shortstop, second base, and pitched while at Hardin County, but Rushing plans to play him at second base.
