Jackson sees MSU as the school for him

2015 Romulus (Mich) wide receiver hopes to wind up in East Lansing, will camp on June 1. He talks other camp plans and summer visits.

It took only a winter visit for a basketball game, but Darius Jackson knew Michigan State was the school where he would like to play football.

"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.

"I'm going to visit a few MAC schools like Ball State, Central Michigan, Bowling Green, Eastern Michigan and Western Michigan and a few Division 2 schools like Grand Valley," he said.
