Interest In Jackson Heating Up

For east coast schools looking for a running back, Delaware prospect Jamaal Jackson may be the answer. Recruiting interest has been string through his junior year and offers are starting to come in for the First State prospect.

Delaware usually features a handful of college prospects every year and one of them for 2010 is Jamaal Jackson. Jackson rushed for 1577 yards and 20 touchdowns on 161 carries as a junior. He also received honors at the Army All-American Combine over the winter.

Recruiters are now beginning to pull the trigger on offers for Jamaal.

"I just got an offer from Louisville. I also have offers from Boston College and Rutgers. Joe Susan from Rutgers offered me. Coach Commisiong offered from BC. I may have mispronounced his name. I have trouble with his name for some reason. Coach Greg Nord from Louisville just sent me an offer. "

With interest picking up, Jamaal is just waiting to see who offers and how strong each program is interested in his services.

"Right now everyone is even. I like everyone that is talking to me and has offered. I mean, I just want to see who is serious before I start making comparisons."

Like most prospects, Jamaal's spring and summer will be busy with camps and combines. But, school comes first right now.

"I have not made plans for the summer just yet about who to visit. I'm getting my school work taken care of first and then will start setting up plans for the summer. I got to get ready for my tests too."

Even though he has yet to nail down his summer schedule, some things are planned for the spring.

"Right now I'm planning to hit the Elite Combine, the Nike Combine and one of the Scout combines. I think I'm going to the one in Baltimore. The Nike Combine is not scheduled yet, but it was in New Jersey last year. "

Jackson plans to wait until he gets offers from all the schools currently interested before beginning the process of narrowing things down. He expects to camp at some schools in the summer and then begin to narrow his list down for official visits.
