2016 Florida Commit Tre Jackson Tweets Support For Chris Leak: "Man Knows What He's Doing"

The abrupt resignation from Florida wide receivers coach Joker Phillips came as a shock to the college football world, but not everyone associated with the Gators program is totally concerned about things. Wide receiver/cornerback Tre Jackson is still a few years away from heading to Gainesville, he's a member of the class of 2016, but he has a lot of confidence in the coaching ability of Chris Leak, who will be taking over for Phillips.

The bigger question may be how Leak will adjust to the recruiting trail, but if he was able to connect well with a player like Jackson, odds are he'll do well in living rooms too. Not every coach is able to say he's won a national championship as a player at the school he coaches.
