"I'm extremely glad to have a scholarship offer from Duke," said Jackson this morning. "They have great academic and athletic programs. They also play in the ACC which is one of the best conferences in college football."
There are certain to be more offers in the rising senior's future. As recently as mid November both Vanderbilt and Alabama stopped by the Fletcher campus to visit with head coach Josh Corey about his talented underclassman. Jackson also holds offers from Florida Atlantic, Missouri and UCF. Georgia Tech has also expressed interest in the receiver but has yet to extend an offer.
The lanky and athletic pass catching target was also recently invited to participate in the U.S. Army All-American game in San Antonio, Texas in January. An honor that will only raise the visibility of his recruitment.
On his highlight tape Jackson shows good hands and speed. He made several difficult catches between two defenders showing great concentration. Obviously at 6-foot-4 plus, Jackson does a good job of high-pointing the ball and is very effective on corner and fade routes in the red zone. The lanky wide receiver also shows the ability to block effectively when the ball is not in his hands. Jackson does a good job of getting his hands inside and staying locked onto the defender.
