"The visit went well, but I did not commit" said Jackson in an interview early Sunday afternoon. "I was hosted by Kyle Browning. We mainly just chilled around. We had a good time."

Coach Bowden met with the talented defender before he left campus to see where he was with his commitment. "He wanted to know where I stand. He asked about my grades. They want me down there but I just need to make up my mind."

With the Tigers looking to stack up on the defensive line in the 2004 class, Jackson has taken notice.

"Right now, I like Clemson alot," said the Union Yellow Jacket star. "We had a good time up there and right now I'm just trying to figure out what I'm going to do."

Jackson currently has several options on the table. CUTigers.com has been told that he could possibly be a sign-and-place by the Clemson coaching staff, most likely at Southwest Mississippi JC, or he could choose to enroll at Winston-Salem State or N.C. A&T.

Jackson appears to be a vastly underrated prospect, as several coaches commented during the Shrine Bowl that he was one player on the defensive side of the ball for the Sandlappers that had a tremendous upside.
