Darreon Jackson Begins Visit To Boise State

When looking at the final four schools for Derby High School (Derby, Kan.) safety prospect Darreon Jackson, the lone geographical outlier is Boise State. With local universities Kansas and Kansas State plus Texas Tech among his top choices, the Broncos are an interesting prospect for the 6-foot-1, 185-pound standout.

"Boise is in the western part of the United States," Jackson said. "I want to see what they have to offer."

Jackson will be in Boise this weekend on an official visit and is looking forward to seeing the City of Trees.

"I want to see how Boise is, first of all," he said. "I have never been in that area of the country."

Jackson was "born and raised" in Cleveland, but moved to the Dallas, Texas area as an eighth grader. His family relocated to Derby during his junior year of high school. Even with questions of distance from home weighing on his mind, the one thing about the Broncos that stands out to him is how consistent and successful the program is.

"I love the coaching staff and the team," Jackson said. "They never have a losing season.

"The coaches told me how they like my character, how physical I am and that I get to the ball."

Jackson has already made unofficial visits to Kansas and Kansas State and has an official to Texas Tech scheduled for January 16. His plan is to make a commitment after his trip to Lubbock.

"I want to see all my options and talk to my dad," Jackson said. "I am probably going to commit after that last official."
