"I have talked with (wide receivers) Coach (Terry) Samuel," Jackson said. "He gave me his number that day so I could stay in touch with him. Since that day I have been liking it and wanting to go there."
"The campus was nice. We got to walk around and all the facilities were very nice. It was a nice experience for me."
The 2015 Romulus wide receiver will be back on campus for Michigan State's one-day camp on June 1, where he is hoping to prove himself worthy of playing at a school of such a high caliber.
"I want to show them that I'm qualified to play for their school," he said. "I gotta make sure everything is right. That's the school I would like to go to."
"It's a big football school and they just won championships, too. I wanna be on that big stage and show everybody I can be that player that can be great."
Jackson, who described himself as a possession receiver, will be hitting a lot of 7 on 7 camps this summer.
"I play for the Michigan Elite 7 on 7," he said. "We've got a tournament coming up in Florida and I just got invited to a combine in Chicago."
He also will be taking visits in the coming months in hopes of landing offers.
