Jim Wildman, his coach at Sharon (Pa.) High School, told the Oakland Press that Jackson wants to finish his career strong and get his degree. Jackson has been hampered by injuries during his career.
"There are two big reasons," Wildman said. "He wants to get his degree. Though theoretically they always say you can go back and get it, in reality most athletes won't. He also feels he has some unfinished business he'd like to accomplish both for himself and for the team."
Jackson has previously said that if he did return he would return to cornerback, the position he played until this season when he was moved to safety.
