It's not 100 percent certain that Jackson will actually play college football. He is considered likely to go in the first ten picks of the first round of the major league baseball draft in June. Desean Jackson is a center fielder with tremendous range who is the prototypical leadoff hitter.
He has said that he wants to play both football and baseball when he goes to college, but he told Gator Country.com in San Antonio that if baseball came up with the right offer, he would have to consider making a baseball-only choice.
> GATOR COUNTRY TAKE: A close family member wouldn't come right out and say it, but the laughter made it pretty clear that when Desean puts on the baseball cap next Wednesday, it will have an SC on the front. The proximity, the stature of the baseball program and the fact that he has seven or eight former high school teammates on the Southern Cal roster make that the likely choice.
