Jackson gets good news

Nick Saban publicly admitted that at least one class of 2014 Alabama signee wasn't in the clear for beginning practice at Alabama this summer, and after Saturday it's clear that Dominick Jackson is not in that group.

6-foot-7, 315 pounds and Tuscaloosa bound.


That's the latest on five-star class of 2014 Alabama signee Dominick Jackson, after the standout offensive line prospect learned of his final grade postings at the College of San Mateo (Calif.) on Saturday, he says.

"I'm good to go," he said.

Coming down the stretch at his final semester at the school, he reported being in good academic standing with BamaMag.com, but needing to "maintain" where he was at in order to finish the way he needed to before beginning his career in Tuscaloosa.

Grades were initially set to post on June 3, but the early start of Alabama's summer program in which Jackson could begin as early as Monday, sped up the process for both sides and the news came through in the afternoon.

With his Associate of Arts degree clinched, Jackson is set to partake in classes at Alabama this summer and participate in workouts and fall camp soon after. The top ranked junior college prospect in America regardless of position, he is expected to compete for early playing time once on campus as part of a Scout record seven five-star commitments for one school in the Crimson Tide's top-ranked class of 2014. The rising-junior has three seasons to play two going forward.
