5-11, 180 pound kicking prospect Richard Jackson, out of Riverside High School in Greer, SC camped at Clemson this weekend. "I went to the kickers camp at Clemson today," Jackson told CUTigers.com Sunday afternoon. "I enjoyed it. It was a good camp. It was very well run."
What did the South Carolina standout enjoy the most about his visit? "I just liked being around the campus. I also enjoyed working with the coaches," he said.
When asked if he has a leader, Jackson responded, "I am still undecided at this point. There are a few schools I am looking at though. I like Clemson, LSU and Georgia."
Although the upstate standout did not commit during his visit, a commitment appears to be just days away. "It won't be too long," said Jackson. "I will probably commit within the week. Possibly the week after. I want to get this decision behind me."
The commitment of teammate Michael Wade to the Tigers will not be a major factor when Jackson decides where he will play his college football. "It weighed on me a little bit early, but we always said we are going to do what's best for each of us," added Jackson.
Jackson does not plan to visit any other schools before making his decision. "I do not plan any more trips right now. I am pretty much done until late July."
We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding kicker from South Carolina, right up through signing day.
