Oklahoma high school football: Choctaw wide receiver, TCU commit Chase Jackson out for season with fractured patella

One of the state’s top high school wide receivers will miss the remainder of the season.

Choctaw senior Chase Jackson, a TCU commit, sustained a fractured patella (kneecap) in the Yellowjackets' 46-18 season-opening loss Friday at Springdale High in Arkansas.

Jackson suffered the injury in the first quarter after catching his first pass of the season. He was tackled out of bounds and slammed his knee into a hard surface on the sideline.

“He’s going to have to have surgery and will be out for the season,” Choctaw coach Jake Corbin told The Oklahoman.

The 6-foot-2, 170-pound Jackson committed to TCU in May and was No. 13 in The Oklahoman's preseason Super 30 rankings of the state’s top 2021 recruits.

He is a three-star prospect and the nation’s 54th-ranked wide receiver in his class, according to 247Sports.

Jackson transferred from Harrah to Choctaw before his junior season. He finished with 56 catches for 1,342 yards and 15 touchdowns last year.
