Jackson: I went to one last year for the South Carolina game.

TR: How much of a factor did Quinn's decision play on you?

Jackson: That didn't play too much of a factor. I just made up my own mind, but his decision had a little impact on me.


TR: Is LSU looking at you more on the offensive side of the ball or on the defensive side?

Jackson: More as a defensive lineman.
