Four-star DE likes Clemson

College coaches love to speak about the "look test" when describing players, and Miami Gulliver Prep's Joseph Jackson certainly passes it with ease.

Joseph Jackson Profile

The sophomore defensive end is one to watch in Florida for the class of 2016.

Jackson is quite a physical specimen at 6-foot-6, 240-pounds, and the Miami Gulliver Prep athlete is off to a great start to his career.

"Things are going great for me right now, and my sophomore season was really good," Jackson stated. "I played very physical and tried to do everything my coaches asked me to do. I try to make big plays for my team, mostly rushing the quarterback off the edge."

"I try to use my speed and my height to disrupt things for the quarterback," he added. "I'm looking to get stronger and faster over the off-season to make myself a better player for next year."

College recruiting has blown up for Jackson, and he holds several BCS offers, including Alabama, Clemson and South Carolina.

"I have a lot of great offers, but I know I have to keep performing and getting better, or they might not be there," he explained. "I would say Alabama is sticking out right now, and I love the program. They like my size on the defensive line, and say they really think I would fit in well."

"I like Clemson a lot too, and want to see them this summer. I really like their style of play a lot," he continued. "When it comes time to pick a college, distance from home won't matter to me at all. I would love to hear from schools like Texas, Michigan and USC for some schools out of Florida."

"For the in-state schools, I really like Florida State the most," Jackson stated. "I also like Miami a lot. The school I rooted for growing up was Michigan, and I've always liked the way they play. I haven't heard anything from them yet, but I would love to be recruited by them."

Jackson is one of several Gulliver Prep underclassmen holding offers under head coach Jorge Baez. Top Stories
