Yours truly reached (Monday evening) running back/safety Jerome Jackson (Dec. 6 official visit, MSU Nike stats: 5-11 1/2, 193 lbs. ... 4.45 in the 40, 3.5 GPA/16 ACT) from Saginaw, Mich.
"I talked to my brother Terry (Minnesota running back) over the holidays. So now it's just a matter of sitting down with my parents and deciding what to do. I should have a decision in a week or so."
"Terry just told me things from his experience, gave me his advice. But it doesn't matter to Terry where I go. He's backing me up on whatever decision I make."
So how do things look to you right now?
"I don't want to give a leader right now -- just that I'm deciding between three schools, Michigan, Purdue, and Minnesota."
We asked him about Saginaw Coach Durrett's statement to us recently that he wants Jerome and Lamarr Woodley to announce on Signing Day.
"Yeah, I know. That's another dilemma I have. I want to put it out there and be done with it, so I'll have to talk to him about it."
"I don't want to give a leader right now"
