Excited that signing day is over, Jackson says he is relvied to be signed and that the pressure is now off of him.

Taking classes this semester at Fort Scott, Jackson says he has one lab in the first short semester of summer left to take and then he will be done with classes at Fort Scott.

"I have everything pretty much taken care of with the classes I am taking right now. All I have left is one lab that goes over with one of the classes I am taking right now for that first mini-semester in the summer and then I am done. That's it.

Bringing blazing speed to the table, Jackson says he will be working out and hitting the weights heavily to get ready to put himself into a position to vie for immediate playing time.

I am going to be working out a lot this summer and keeping size but they told me they want my speed out there and I am going to try and get in there faster then what I was before. They told me they want me ready to go and that is what I am going to do – but I am going to come in faster and stronger."

With three years to play two, Jackson says the clock is ticking and he is ready for duty.
