"I suffered a concussion in the second quarter," Jackson said. "I wanted to come back in and finish the game but my trainers wouldn't let me. I knew what was going on but they asked me what quarter the game was in and I couldn't tell them. They didn't want me to risk any further injury. It was rough though watching us lose and not being able to do anything about it."
Richard Jackson, 6-2 and 195, finished his senior season with 550 yards and five touchdowns. Now he's into basketball.
"I haven't been practicing yet because they want me to rest a little more," he said. "We're gonna be good though. It should be a good year for us. After basketball, I'm gonna work with my receivers coach during the spring and prepare myself for college."
Speaking of college, Jackson has made his decision. He will announce it later this week.
"I commit this Thursday," he said. "I already told the coaches. Everyone will find out Thursday. It's between Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, and Miami."
The talented receiver has visited both Notre Dame and Georgia Tech but hasn't yet seen Miami.
"I know enough about all three of them," he said. "I feel like I made the best decision for me. I'm very excited about it."
