"Yes sir, I am going to Arizona on Friday," said Jackson when asked if he was in deed making the trek south. "I am looking forward to my trip. I visited Arizona State my senior year in high school but now I am looking forward to visiting the University of Arizona."
Jackson has already taken an official visit to Oregon State and according Ruben, it went well.
"My trip to Oregon State was a real nice trip," he said. "It was a nice little visit. On a scale of one to ten I would probably give it a nine or so. It was a good visit."
Jackson played his high school days at Edison High School in Stockton, California and that may play in to the Wildcats favor.
"I know Chris Henry real well," said Jackson. "I talked to him the other day and he was telling me how much he likes it up there and where the program is going and everything. I played with Chris in high school."
In addition to Henry, the Cats may have yet another card up their sleeve in former CCSF Ram linebacker Randy Sims.
"I played with Randy Sims last year here too," said Jackson. "I talked to him at the same time I talked to Chris. He was telling me all the same stuff about how much he likes it down there and everything."
"Coach Williams is a cool coach," he said. "I like him. I talked to coach Stoops and the new tight ends coach, Heupel, too and they both seem like really good guys. Coach Stoops is an outspoken guy and a real decent guy."
When it comes down to decision time Jackson says that the main thing he wants is a quality education in what he wants his degree in.
"I am going to major in Sociology and Criminal Justice," he said. "So whichever school has the better program in my area of study and wherever I feel like I can play and live is where I will go. I want to play and win but my education is important."
