"We have a scrimmage game coming up this weekend," Jackson informed.


Is the stud back ready for it?


"Am I ready? I've been waiting for this game as well as this season to start. I can't wait to get out there."


How has the recruiting scene been going for Jackson?


"Actually I just sent coach Mallory from LSU an email. He had sent me one explaining to me the LSU football schedule and some of their games coming up. I told him I'd like to make it to the Florida game."


Why did he pick that game?


"I want to go for the atmosphere. It is going to be crazy in Baton Rouge for that game and I want to be there to experience it."


Any other official visits set up?


"The LSU vs. Florida game isn't definite yet because I am waiting to hear from Coach Mallory. So the only visit that is set in stone is a visit to Clemson. I am pretty sure I'll be checking out LSU though."


What is it about LSU that sparks such an interest in the talented back?


"Baton Rouge is a great place. LSU is a good school and their football team is always going to be at the top of college football. If they are not in the running for the national title then you know they are always at least in the running for the SEC Championship."


Is there anything Jackson is going to try to accomplish over the next few months?


"I think I'll have all of my official visits out of the way by October and that is also the time I expect to make my decision on where I plan to attend college. Other than that, I am going to continue to work hard everyday and try to be the best running back out there. I always try to make good decisions and try to do everything right."
