Jackson Has Eyes on Kentucky - Still

When the University of Kentucky signed Jamaal Jackson in the spring of 2005, the bluegrass state salivated at the thought of the top flight linebacker and defensive end sporting the blue and white.

"I wanted to go there from the start," Jamaal Jackson said. "They have always been my favorite school. They were on me when nobody else was and they really have tried."

After signing with Kentucky in 2005 & 2006 and never making the grades to enroll in school, Georgia Military JC defensive end Jamaal Jackson hopes the University of Kentucky will offer him another chance.

"Nothing much is really changed, I may not play for GMC this year," Jackson said. "But I'm a lock to go back to Kentucky, if they will have me."

The 6-foot-4, 235 pounder was a standout at Crisp County HS in Cordele (Ga.) where he starred as a headhunting linebacker and part time defensive end. He spent this past year at Georgia Military College.

"It was a good experience for me and it helped me get my act together a little bit," Jackson said. "School just never came easy for me, but I'm trying."

Kentucky, who allowed Jackson to sign twice, is hoping that the talented linebacker can make it to campus just as much. He was by far, the most impressive player on tape.

"I'm a skilled athlete," Jackson said. "I can fly to the ball and I can hit like a train."
