Kentucky had nearly 50 prospects on campus Saturday for the Blue-White game. One of them was J-Town running back DeMichael Jackson. Jackson came away from his visit to Lexington very impressed.

Last season Jackson rushed for nearly 1400 yards and caught passes for over 300 more yards totaling 25 touchdowns. The 5-foot-11, 190-pound junior visited Kentucky late last month for spring practice and made it back for the spring finale.

"The Kentucky visit, overall, was a ten. It was excellent. I liked how the coaches showed a lot of interest into all the recruits that were there," said Jackson. "They didn't make anyone feel left out. We were treated as family and not just normal recruits," he continued.

Jackson also liked the format of the game and being able to see the scrimmage up close and personal.

"I enjoyed everything. I liked how it was set up and how we had a chance to stand on the field during the whole scrimmage to get a look on how the SEC really is, up close," Jackson said.

Jackson got a chance to interact with members of the Kentucky coaching staff as well.

"I had a chance to talk to Coach Phillips, Coach Turner, Coach Nord and Coach Smith," he said. "The way the coaches showed us attention and welcomed us into the Wildcat nation stood out to me the most. You usually don't get that home welcoming from other schools. You just feel like you are there just to be there, but at Kentucky I felt like I was there as a recruit and as family. It was a very exciting and excellent experience," Jackson finished.

Aside from Kentucky, Jackson is hearing a lot from Illinois, Tennessee, Western Kentucky and Indiana.
