Charles In Charge

Klein (Texas) Collins cornerback Charles Jackson (5-10, 175) talks about his "great" visit to the University of Arkansas and how he has pushed the Razorbacks to the top of his list.

Klein (Texas) Collins cornerback Charles Jackson has been to many a football game, but nothing like what he saw on Saturday while on his official visit to the University of Arkansas.

That's when he took in the Razorbacks and Alabama in an SEC match-up of Top 10 nationally-ranked squads in a raucous and packed stadium.

"My visit to Arkansas was great," Jackson said. "What a big-time football game. What an atmosphere. It was certainly the biggest game I have ever been to. Arkansas should have won, but I couldn't have enjoyed myself anymore than I did. It really blew me away and makes me want to play in those type games even more."

Jackson (5-10, 175) had already taken an official visit to Oklahoma and has one set to Nebraska on Oct. 15-17.

The Razorbacks are now the leader in the clubhouse.

"This visit put Arkansas at the top," Jackson said. "I am going to take my visit to Nebraska and then come back and I'll probably have a decision just a few days after that."

The Razorback coaching staff has made it clear how much it wants Jackson to join the 2011 recruiting class.

"They have made it clear from day one how much they want me and how much they need me," Jackson said. "They were the first one to offer me, the first one that thought I was good enough to play on the college level. That means a lot to me and a big consideration in my decision."

Klein Collins is off to a 4-0 start with Jackson having put points on the board on offense, defense and special teams.

He's scored via the rush, took an interception back to the end zone and also showed off his punt and kick return ability.

"I'm having a lot of fun getting to play a little offense this season, too," Jackson said. "I'm helping our team out in a lot of ways this season and I'm enjoying that a lot."

Offense is fun, but Jackson has made his name as a lock down corner.

"My strength is my coverage ability," Jackson said. "I love to go out there and try to take a guy completely out of the game. But I am also getting to play a little safety this season as well and I love to come up in run support and shake them uo a bit. But coverage is my thing."
