Watch: What Jackson Muschamp learned from Corbett Glick
South Carolina football coach Will Muschamp got his full-time coaching start in the FCS ranks.
His son Jackson Muschamp will at least have the chance to play for one of the top teams at that level.
Jackson Muschamp, a quarterback at Hammond High School, tweeted Friday he’d picked up an offer from Jacksonville State, a team that went 9-4 last season with an appearance in the FCS playoffs.
He also took a pair of visits to two of the best schools in the country in Harvard and Yale.
Muschamp also has offers from Wofford and Western Carolina.
Jacksonville State is notable because of the history of success it has. Before last season, it had a run of five consecutive 10-win seasons and top-10 finishes. The school has often had talent transfer down from higher levels, including the likes of Shaq Davidson from South Carolina.
Led by former Clemson QB Zerrick Cooper, Jacksonville State (also the Gamecocks) threw for 3,864 yards this season.
Jackson Muschamp led Hammond to another state title this season, throwing for 3,062 yards, 34 touchdowns and six interceptions. He completed 67.4 percent of his passes and ran for 262 yards.
It was his first season as starting quarterback after playing safety.
