Official Visit Primer: Terrell Jackson

With an official visit set for Iowa this weekend, Michigan State changed Ohio native Terrell Jackson's weekend plans with an offer on Thursday night. This weekend he'll be on the Michigan State campus.

The past week has been a roller coaster ride for this Ohio prospect. Having camped at Michigan State and loving it, this prospect stayed in contact with the Spartan coaching staff and kept from giving a program his solid verbal pledge. His reward, an official visit with the Spartans and offer prior to the visit.

Terrell Jackson – Defensive End / Tackle

School: Marion-Franklin (Columbus, Ohio)

Height: 6'3

Weight: 260 lbs. Position Rank: #66 Defensive Tackle (3-Star)

Schools under consideration: Michigan State, Pittsburgh, Iowa, Illinois

What this visit means: The Spartans held off to the very last minute for Jackson to make an official visit. There was talk of a visit last weekend but the Spartan were not in position to issue an offer to the Ohio native and instructed him to visit Pittsburgh. Now that has changed as Jackson received the offer many feel he wanted most from Mark Dantonio on Thursday night.

This visit is to show Jackson the inner workings of the Spartans program and to get his verbal pledge. Anything less will be a surprise to those who have spoken with Jackson over the past six months.
