Prospect Review: 2014 DB Adoree Jackson

In a game featuring close to double digit scholarship athletes, Gardena (Calif.) Serra defensive back Adoree Jackson was easily the best player on the field in the Cavs big win over Los Angeles (Calif.) Cathedral last Friday.

Adoree Jackson is the top rated defensive back out West in the 2014 class and one of the nation's top corner prospects. Playing against a Cathedral team that came in averaging 45 points a game and led by LSU quarterback Hayden Rettig, the Cavs completely shut down the Phantoms.

Rettig was just 15-41 for 138 yards and three interceptions and Jackson played a big role. He had one interception, completely locked up his side of the field and looked good in run support as well. He had three electric punt/kick returns that drew ooohs and aahs from the crowd and definitely lived up to the hype.

Physically, Jackson has everything you're looking for in a college corner. He's a well built 5-10, 175 pounds with very long arms. He doesn't look like he's done growing yet and if he pushes up in to that 6-0 range, he has a chance to be really special.

Jackson runs very well and anchored Serra's state ranked 4X100m relay team as a sophomore last year. He won a state title in the long jump and is just a very explosive, quick twitch athlete.

After the game, Jackson had some playful fun with Rettig.

"I need to get Hayden to get me that LSU offer," Jackson said with a big smile on his face. If LSU offers me, I'm committing on the spot. That's my dream school and I love it there. Hayden, you need to make that happen man, we need to be teammates in college."

It will be interesting to see if the Tigers do get involved with Jackson as there is never a shortage of elite DB talent in the South. Saying that, Jackson does have the talent to play for any program in the country and should be a 40+ offer recruit when the spring rolls around.
