Richard Jackson, a 5-foot-11, 180 pound kicker from Riverside High School, is still working on a decision between three schools: Clemson, LSU and Georgia.
"I haven't made up my mind just yet," Jackson told CUTigers.com Monday evening. "But it should be soon. It will be some time this week."
The star kicker spent the holiday weekend on the lake where he focused on spending more time with his friends, as opposed to worrying about where he'll play college football. "I didn't think much about it this weekend. I just went on vacation to the lake with some friends. I just tried to take some time off from everything," he said.
Jackson plans to talk with his family about the decision, but he also said that he will make the decision on his own. "I will talk with my family a little bit about it. I just need to sit down by myself and decide where I want to go."
Is there a chance that the Palmetto standout will decide to hold off on a commitment this week? "No, it will almost certainly be this week," stated the prize recruit.
Jackson converted 8-of-11 field goals as a junior with a long of 50 yards. He also attended the Tigers' one-day kicking camp just a week ago.
Clemson is expected to take one kicker in the 2006 recruiting class. Jackson appears to be near the top of the board because of his leg strength, and also because of his ability to both kick field goals and punt.
