Mickey Jackson Has Offers

Louisiana Tech's search for talented defensive tackles has reached the State of Alabama.

Mickey Jackson, one of the top defensive tackles in Alabama, has received multiple offers this summer. Several of the region's top schools outside of the SEC have offered the standout defender.

"I have offers from Louisiana tech, USM, UAB, Memphis, and Jackson State," said Jackson. "Out of the schools that have offered, I like Louisiana Tech and probably Southern Miss."

So what stands out about Louisiana Tech? "I'm hearing from Louisiana Tech the most," explained Jackson. "Coach Spangler visited my school. I call Coach Eggen quite a bit."

Some of the schools that have offered Jackson are a little closer to Jackson's home in Piedmont, AL. "Distance isn't a factor," offered the 6'1" 300 pound tackle. "My mom wants me to get away from home a little so I can experience college life and not come home too much."

Piedmont gets an early test this season. They open with a rival from just 20 minutes up the road in Cherokee. "They are 4A and we both won State Championships," added Jackson. "They're a big rival and they have a really good center." Sounds like a great game and a great way for Mickey Jackson to start the season in a big way.
