Fort Valley, Ga.--A top wide receiver prospect in the 2018 class, Peach County High standout Kearis Jackson, made a recent visit to Auburn to check out the Tigers and spend time with new offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey and the coaching staff.
“I enjoyed myself,” Jackson said. “I talked to all of the coaches and just bonded with everybody. I’m just getting to know a lot about Auburn and what they have coming in this year.”
One of the things coming for the Tigers is Lindsey and newcomer quarterback Jarrett Stidham. Known for throwing the ball, Lindsey’s reputation combined with a talented guy like Stidham has Jackson excited about what Auburn could look like moving forward.
“That’s very big,” Jackson said. “They have a quarterback coming from Baylor and he already has some experience under his belt. A guy that likes to throw the ball is something different for Auburn. I can’t wait to see what things are going to look like for Auburn.”
Planning to come back to Auburn for a spring practice with visits to other schools such as Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee, Jackson said at the moment he’s in no rush to make any decisions on narrowing down a list or to commit.
“I’m enjoying the process right now,” Jackson said. “I’m just talking to everybody and getting everybody’s input. I’m just having fun.”
With trips planned back to Auburn and wanting to see more from the Tigers, Jackson said there is plenty to like about the program right now.
“It was the coaches for me,” Jackson said of what stood out. “The coaches are very laid back, they are cool. I’m also looking at the depth chart, what I would be up against if I come in and how things are looking for 2018.”
