Before Nebraska (Central Dauphin East HS)
Carroll-Jackson was a versatile lineman for Central Dauphin East High School in Pennsylvania. He drew recruiting interest as both an offensive and defensive lineman despite playing only one season of high school football. Along with Husker teammate Rahmir Stewart, Carroll-Jackson was the first Pennsylvania native to sign with Nebraska out of high school since 1999.
Carroll-Jackson did not play football until his senior year of high school. As a senior, Carroll-Jackson had more than 50 tackles and 20 tackles for loss with eight sacks, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. He earned all-conference accolades in his lone season.
The highest rated recruit in Central Dauphin East history, Carroll-Jackson was regarded as a four-star recruit by On3, which ranked among the nation’s top 40 defensive linemen. Originally a Syracuse commit, he chose Nebraska over offers from Florida, Georgia, Pittsburgh and Rutgers, among others.
