Offers rolling in for Jackson

Schools in the South have taken notice of Tadric Jackson. He already has high major offers and has taken a handful of unofficial visits.

The high major scholarship offers are rolling in for Tifton (Ga.) Tift County standout Tadric Jackson.

"It's going big," Jackson said of his college recruitment. "I have some big offers like Alabama, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, NC State and some other offers."

"It's a lot of excitement right now and a lot of attention," he added about his recruitment. "Coaches are calling me every day and coming to practice."

Jackson has already taken a handful of unofficial visits.

"I went to Alabama," he said. "Went to a game and a practice. Then I went to Georgia Tech, Georgia and then Florida."

Although he noted that he hasn't "narrowed it down yet," Jackson did single out Alabama as the schools standing out the most right now.

"They are calling every day," Jackson said. "Mostly every night. Coach [Anthony] Grant has been coming to games and come to see me practice. Coach [John] Brannen has come to see me practice."

Through three games at the City of Palms Classic, Jackson, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound guard, averaged 16.3 points per game.

"I've been playing good so far," he said of his junior season. "The competition is straight. I have to keep playing and keep playing hard. That's what I do best."

Jackson said he's at his best when he's in attack mode.

"Going to the basket," he said when asked what he does the best. "If they can't stop me going to the basket, then when they collapse I just dish it out to my open shooters."

Jackson, a three-star recruit, is currently ranked as the No. 16 shooting guard in the 2014 class.
