"I am looking at most of the teams, Clemson, NC State, Georgia, South Carolina. Mostly all of the ACC teams, and most of the SEC teams," says the 6-foot, 210 pounder. "Preferably, I would like to stay close by to home, but it might be best to go farther."
Distance will play a big factor, but it is not the biggest factor is Jackson's decision.
B "Probably playing time. My best chance for that is between South Carolina and Clemson. I feel like I can play with either one of those judging by their classes they are recruiting this year."
Those two teams are a common occurance for Jackson, as the Tigers and Gamecocks are in the lead.
"That's kinda hard to say, but if I really had to say, it would be Clemson and South Carolina. I might commit early, but it depends on other colleges that haven't offered me. I might just commit early so I can get it over with and not have to worry about colleges during the season. Most of the schools wanting me to commit early I have the best chance of playing early.
"Some schools want me at running back, some of them at linebacker, but hopefully I will play linebacker. I feel like I would be able to make it better at that, and my whole goal is to make it to the pros.
"Basically my playing style is I like to hit. I like to be a run stopper because I like to stick my nose in other teams' business."
