"It was absolutely awesome," he said. "I didn't expect to enjoy it so much. I knew they had a great fan base, but not to the extreme I witnessed."
While watching practice, there were a few players who caught Jackson's eye.
"Jalen Hurd is a great athlete, and I can't wait to see what he can do in the SEC. The offensive line is a strong unit as well. I think Gilliam's story is impressive."
He plans to keep in contact with head coach Butch Jones and his staff.
"They want me to keep calling once a week. I really like Coach Mahoney a lot. He's a cool guy to talk to. Coach Jones told me they don't want me to rush into a commitment, but that they do want me to be a Vol at the end of the day.
"They asked me to come down for the Florida game."
Jackson's high school season starts in under two weeks, but he will continue to visit colleges and go through his recruiting process during the Fall as well.
"I'll be at Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio State, and hopefully Alabama [for games]."
