Clermont, Florida

Four-star wide receiver prospect Richard Jackson is a hot commodity among several schools in the southeast.

Entering his senior season, he's declining to list any favorites in the recruiting process, but he is working on setting up a handful of unofficial visits this fall.

"I don't have any favorites right now," said Jackson in an interview with CUTigers.com. "They are all the same, but I'm in the process of working on my visits. I know I am going to see Miami. They are the closest. I need to talk to my parents to decide about the other trips."

Are the Tigers still one of the teams that Jackson is considering? "Yeah, I am still looking at Clemson," he said. "They are telling me they really want me to come there. They say I can help them win. They tell me all kinds of motivational stuff."

Jackson plans to select his top five schools over the next few weeks.

"I am starting to narrow things down now. So you could say that I am in the process of doing it. I am looking at all of the aspects (of each school). Hopefully in the next few weeks I will have my top five. It will definitely be in the next three weeks."

Jackson has already started working towrads the first game of his senior year. "Yeah, we started practice at the beginning of August," he said. "Then next week we have our Jamboree. Then we have our first game the following week. I'm playing on both sides of the ball this year. I will move to corner on defense, wide receiver on offense. Last year I played some safety."

How will the prize recruit select a top five over the next few weeks? "I will look a the depth chart. I will also consider if they have what I want to study. I want to major in History or Sports Management," he added.
