In-State Big Cat Weekend Visitor High on the Auburn Football Program

Shedrick Jackson talks about Big Cat Weekend and recruiting.

Hoover, Ala.--Wide receiver prospect Shedrick Jackson said on Saturday he is seriously considering the Auburn Tigers

Auburn Tigers, but the rising senior at Hoover High isn’t ready to end recruiting just yet.

“Maybe in two weeks,” he said when asked about a commitment time. “I want to take more visits--maybe to Missouri, I haven’t been there. I?may take an official in the fall--we’ll see.

“I talked to Coach (Gus Malzahn) about it and where I stand with him and Auburn,” the football prospect said. “I am taking it day by day.”

Jackson, who noted he is still growing, said he has passed six-foot-two and has hit the 200-pound mark.

On Saturday he was one of several dozen prospects on the Auburn campus for Big Cat Weekend.

“I had a lot of fun,” he said. “It was kind of like the junior days I have been to, but there was a lot more interaction with the coaches and there were a bunch of other guys there. I?had a great time.”

Asked what will be the biggest factor in his college choice the receiver said, “Probably the bond I?have with the coaches and academics are important, too. What type of place it is big, too.”
