Jackson back at MSU, talks spring visits

Mona Shores (Mich.) junior quarterback enjoys East Lansing and is lining up more junior days in the coming weeks to check out more schools.

Mona Shores made the playoffs for the first time in school history this past season and quarterback Tyree Jackson was a big part of the reason.

The junior was in East Lansing on Saturday taking part in a junior day at Michigan State.

"Everything was great," he said. "I loved the environment and the atmosphere. The best part of the day was talking to the coaches and watching Michigan State play, even though they lost."

Jackson talked with Michigan State quarterbacks coach Brad Salem throughout halftime and was invited back to campus soon.

"He invited me to spring practice and talked about how many quarterbacks they might take," he said. "He wants me to camp this summer."

The 6-foot-4, 196-pound quarterback also is gearing up for some other spring visits.

"Minnesota, Buffalo, Central Michigan and some other schools have me to junior days," he said, "but I have to sit down with my coach at school and decide where to go."

Once the spring evaluation period, a couple school are expected to stop by Mona Shores – and maybe more.

"Buffalo and Toledo are for some but some others probably will want to," Jackson said.
