Tide Signee: Kareen Jackson

Scout.com three-star cornerback Kareem Jackson signs his letter of intent with the Crimson Tide. Jackson talks of his decision.

"Originally, I committed to Vanderbilt," Kareem Jackson said. "I decided to visit Alabama. I met the coaching staff, and they were really nice to me. There is a lot of tradition at Alabama. I wanted to be a part of it."

Jackson had a terrific season recording five interceptions from his cornerback position at Fort Union Military, (Va.).

"I am currently 6-0, 190-pounds," he said. "The coaches have said they want me as a cornerback and returning kicks."

"With there being a new coaching staff at Alabama the coaches told me that everyone starts with a clean slate. Coach Steele said if I do what I am suppose to do, then I will play this year."

Jackson explains his strengths and what he hopes to improve before fall camp.

"I think my coverage skills and return skills are my two biggest strengths," he said. "I am going to try to improve my 40-time. I want to get a little stronger as well."

Jackson is already enrolled for the spring semester at the University of Alabama.
