Frankfort High (Ky.) is home to a number of young talented players. But one of their upperclassmen has made quite a name for himself during his time as well. FOX Sports Next talks with Aaron Jackson.

Aaron Jackson has had a good season so far for Frankfort. On the season he's got over 400 yards receiver and six touchdowns. Defensively he's got two interceptions as well. Jackson is mostly pleased with his play.

"I think my play this year has been good overall. There are some things I want back," Jackson said. "I can't complain. I'm going to take it one game at a time and continue to play for my team and then worry about college. I don't want to get caught up in all of that."

While Jackson doesn't want be distracted or be a distraction based thinking about the future, he does have some nice opportunities in front of him.

"I'm talking to several schools at this point that haven't offered me," said Jackson. "Those are Louisville, which is at the top (of my list), then Kentucky, Cincinnati, North Carolina State, Western Kentucky and Army as of the start of this season," said Jackson.

But his list doesn't end there. He does have a few offers already in hand.

"I have talked to Navy, who offered me and said I can take my official visit either during or at the end of the season. I've gotten three offers right now from (them), Eastern Kentucky and Liberty," he said.

Jackson, as he mentioned before, is high on the Louisville Cardinals.

"I'm really interested in Louisville. I mean, I've always been a Louisville fan and I've always wanted to play there," he said. "I'm constantly in contact with Louisville, which may be one of (upcoming offers)," he said.

So what kind of player is the 6-foot-3, 185-pound Jackson to get all of this attention?

"I think my strength as a player is my physical ability. Being 6-3 and having a nice upside creates a problem for most undersized corners. I can stretch the field vertically and will fight for any ball," he said. "I can handle press and constant pressure offensively," he said.
