Jackson gets a visit from Chavis

Janzen Jackson was one of LSU early commitments for 2009 as the 4-star cornerback committed to the Tigers back in February when he attended junior day. Even though he made his decision many months ago schools never backed off of the country's No. 12 ranked corner and with signing day a little more than four weeks away he is preparing for that final stretch run.

The next month is going to be hectic for Jackson (6-1, 185, 4.44) as his phone will be blowing up and coaches will be making their rounds trying to convince him that their school is the best fit.

 

In fact, several coaches made their way to Lake Charles-Barbe earlier today (Monday) with a couple of them headed back for an in-home visit later tonight.

“I actually had coach (Nick) Saban here earlier today (noon) for an in-home visit at my house and then coach (John) Chavis and coach (Larry) Porter were at school earlier today talking to my coach. I’m waiting on coach Chavis and coach Porter to come over to the house right now,” Jackson said at 7:25 p.m.

 

Despite making an early pledge to the Tigers, Saban has stayed on Jackson with the hopes of being able to flip him to the Crimson Tide.

 

Alabama has its successful season to turn to, but Jackson sees more than that when he looks at the Crimson Tide.

 

“The program and what they’re doing with the program right now is a big selling point,” Jackson said. “I don’t want to say that it’s just this season, but they’ve turned it around pretty quickly.”

 

Alabama is recruiting Jackson to play safety, which is the position he has played for most of high school career, while LSU is recruiting him for cornerback.

 

Is that another selling point for the Crimson Tide?

 

“It kind of is but like I tell everybody, I’m a DB (defensive back),” said Jackson. “If it was between me playing safety or wide receiver then it would be a big factor. But, it’s out of me playing corner or safety and I like to play both. At safety, I’m more comfortable and I know I’m good at safety. But I played corner at the LSU camps and they seem to think I can play corner. It doesn’t matter to me though.”

 

After Saban left, Jackson got his first opportunity to meet with LSU’s new defensive coordinator and the meeting went well according to the standout corner.

 

“I liked him (Chavis) a lot,” said Jackson. “He’s a real straightforward guy and he doesn’t blow smoke.”

 

Chavis went into detail about the type of defense he’s going to run at LSU and it seems to be a little different than the one the Tigers ran this past season.

 

“He (Chavis) talked about the different coverages he’s going to run and they’re going to play a lot of Cover four,” said Jackson. “They’re going to put their corners on an island and let them handle their own more so than bringing the safeties up to help.

 

“The safeties are going to help on the posts and towards the middle of the field, but he says he needs corners that are physical enough to be out there and not need a lot of help. He said they’re going to play more bump and run with the corners where they press more.”

 

Jackson is expecting another visit from college coaches on Wednesday as Tennessee defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin and defensive line coach Ed Orgeron will be making an in-home visit.

 

Tennessee will actually be his first official visit that is slated for this weekend and he’s eager to see what the surroundings are like in Knoxville.

 

“I’ve talked to coach (Raasaan) Haralson (graduate assistant) and I really liked him,” said Jackson. “He coaches the DB’s and he came up to the school and presented what they had to offer. I think he did a really good job and I liked him a lot.

 

“Then I talked to coach (Lane) Kiffin and he told me he wanted me to play safety. Coach Kiffin’s dad (Monte) is coming by on Wednesday with coach Orgeron so I’m anxious to hear what they have to say and see what they’re like.”

 

After Jackson takes his trip to Knoxville he will stay closer to home the following weekend to visit McNeese State where his father, Lance Guidry, serves as secondary coach.

 

The last two weekends in January will be Jackson’s final two official visits as he goes to LSU on Jan. 23 followed by Alabama on Jan. 30.

 

There has been a lot of talk of this being a battle between the Tigers and the Crimson Tide so those two weeks will cause some anxiousness for both fan bases.

 

There has also been some talk of late as to where Jackson stood with his commitment to LSU and he laid that out for Tiger fans.

 

“I’m pretty solid on LSU,” he said. “I’m just trying to make sure that’s the place I want to go, but I’m pretty solid on LSU.”

 

Is there anything in particular that could change his mind?

 

“I just want to be sure and see what other schools have to offer me and kind of weigh my options from there,” said Jackson. “I want to take all of my visits and make sure that LSU is the right place for me. Right now I feel that it is the right place but I just want to make sure.”

 

Aside from focusing on recruiting, Jackson is spending his time rehabilitating his knee. He tore his meniscus late in his senior season, but says that everything is going well at this stage of his rehab.

 

“It’s going good and everything feels good,” said Jackson, who picked off six passes, blocked five field goals and recorded over 85 tackles as a senior.
