2003 Profile: WR Jordan Jackson

How would you feel about a 6'6 receiver roaming 30-yards down field for the Clemson Tigers? WR Jordan Jackson, an all-state performer out of Bunkie, Louisiana, has the ultra-unique combination of speed and height.

Jordan Jackson is one incredible athlete from Bunkie, Louisiana, and he's already been receiving steady mail from schools all over the country, including Clemson.

Jackson has good quickness with long strides, and plays both ways for his team. The 6-6 junior registered 64 tackles, 11 interceptions, 17 pass breakups and three fumble recoveries this past year playing free safety. Offensively, he registered 20 catches for 404 yards and six touchdowns as a starting wide receiver.

He also plays center for the Panther basketball team and runs track.

Jackson has already been hearing from schools like South Carolina, Penn State, Illinois, LSU, and Clemson. The 6-foot-6, 195-pounder was a key reason the Panthers went 11-1 during the season and won their first playoff game since 1988. He also represents the first true Division I-A prospect to come out of Bunkie High School.

"He was selected as the State Defensive MVP for class 3A as a free safety for this past football season. However, Jordan will probably be a wide receiver at the next level," says Bunkie defensive coordinator Luke Welch.

"He is an outstanding person with a super attitude. His most recent time in the 40 is 4.6. He isn't as quick as some of the smaller guys, but with his long strides, he makes up a lot of ground in a hurry."

We'll keep you updated on this fine athlete as the football season draws closer.
