3-star OT Octavius Jackson choosing between 3

Octavius Jackson, a 3-star offensive lineman at Colquitt County's in Moultrie, GA is ready to announce his college choice. The 6-foot-4, 295 pound prospect said he will choose between Vanderbilt, USF and Florida and announce his choice tomorrow at his school.

With summer now over and fall camp ready to begin, Colquitt County offensive lineman Octavius Jackson,  is ready to put on the pads and make his college choice.

"I've been working hard and getting ready for fall camp," said Jackson. "We start tomorrow morning and I can't wait. I think we could go all the way."

The 3-star prospect rated the 73 best offensive tackle in the country had offers from South Florida, Kentucky, Vanderbilt, UCF, Middle Tennessee, and Temple, but a new SEC school has jumped into the picture.

"Things are going good," said Jackson. "I got an offer from Florida recently."

 The 6-foot-4, 295 pound prospect has recently said that USF and Vanderbilt were his top two schools, but the new offer has changed things up.

"It's still pretty much the same the same," said Jackson. "I have Vandy, USF and Florida as my top schools."

Jackson talks about each of his three favorites.

Vanderbilt "It's an up and rising early. I'll have a chance to play early if I go there," said Jackson. "It's a good school, has very nice campus, with great academics."

USF "They're an up and coming program too. They have a nice campus, great facilities, some of the nicest I've seen, and a good staff," said Jackson. "Our corner is committed there, so that is always nice.

Florida "They have a chance to compete every year, and they're Florida," said Jackson. "They have a great storied program, that's one of the top in the country."

With camp beginning tomorrow, Jackson said he plans on announcing his college choice tomorrow at his school.

 "I'll be announcing tomorrow and I'm choosing between Vandy, Florida, & USF," said Jackson. "I don't have my mind made up yet and will probably do so tomorrow at noon."

The Colquitt Standout does know some of the factors he's looking at in making his choice.

"A school has to have good academics, and that's very important to me. Then the tradition of the football team and the school has to be on point," said Jackson. I also like to be at a winning football program. I want to go where I have a chance to win and also a chance to start..
