The Tampa (Fla.) Jesuit linebacker/defensive end is as versatile as it gets in the Sunshine State, and he is expecting quite a lot once he arrives in Tuscaloosa to check out spring practice.
"They are very interested, me and coaches speak daily," said Jackson. "They're on the verge of offering."
A scholarship from the Crimson Tide would go a long way for the three-star, who says the staff has flat-out let him know the extension may be coming while he's on campus.
"Coach [Chris] Rumph, who's in my region, told me they are going to offer, no doubt," he added. "They like me at any linebacker position."
Should Nick Saban follow up with Rumph's message to the 6-foot-2, 220-pounder with an offer, it may create a quick turnaround considering Jackson's interest in the defending champs.
"They're my number one," he admitted.
And if he earns the offer, it not only could lead to big news for him, but for four-star offensive tackle Isaiah Wynn, who is taking the visit with him.
"I'll more than likely commit, me and Isaiah," Jackson predicted. "I'm not sure if same day, but sometime..."
Jackson, currently ranked the No. 51 OLB in the country on FOX Sports NEXT/Scout.com, and Wynn will each visit on the weekend of April 12. Wynn has yet to received an offer from Alabama as well.
