Jackson seeing the big picture

Michael Jackson made it to Clemson for this month's edition of the annual camp... again.

As a matter of fact, Jackson has been to the camp in Clemson for three-straight summers.

"I'm kind of used to it now," he told CUTigers in a recent interview.

This Jackson is a 6-foot, 180-pound cornerback from Spain Park High School in Hoover, Ala. His father, who goes by the same name, played football at Florida in the 90s.

In addition to Clemson's camp, Jackson has also been to Middle Tennessee, Ole Miss and UAB for camp. South Carolina and Auburn will host him for camp visits in July. Louisville could be another destination.

But Jackson can't help himself. He keeps coming back to camp at Clemson.

"I like the flow of it," he said.


Michael Jackson's dad played his college ball at Florida.
Jackson sees Clemson as a school that offers the best of both worlds -- top notch football and a quality degree.

"It's a good school. It's not like an SEC school where it's all about football. It's an academic school, too," Jackson said.

Charlie Harbison worked with Jackson during his first two camp visits to Clemson. Mike Reed was hired in place of Harbison, who is now at Auburn.

"I like [Reed] a lot. He's like a younger coach Cheese," Jackson said.

As a sophomore, Jackson had 30 tackles, two interceptions and blocked four field goals.
