At 6-foot-2 and 195 pounds, Jackson began his football career in high school. "I started in ninth grade and I've been doing it ever since," Jackson said. "It just came natural to me I guess. I just really enjoy having fun out there on the field."
Jackson, a full academic qualifier thanks to a 980 SAT score, ripped opposing defenses throughout his junior season. That performance put him on the national map. He finished the year with 72 catches for over 1,200 yards and 11 touchdowns. Now college coaches everywhere are talking to him. "I have over 10 written offers already," he said. "All of my favorites have already sent me an offer. Miami, Notre Dame, and Florida State are my top three. I also like Clemson and Oklahoma and they both offered too."
Jackson said there's a lot to like about the Hurricanes. "I just like the swagger they play with," he said. "They're a cocky group and I really like that about them. Whenever they take the field, they know they're gonna win. It's why they've won so much over the years. That's how I like to play so I think I fit in well there."
Jackson, who had a 37-yard touchdown reception in his team's spring game, plans on attending one-day camps at both Florida and Miami.
