Tim Jackson had an impressive off-season, attracting the attention of college coaches with standout performances on camp circuit this season. The result has him sitting on 18 offers, with more likely coming following his first three games of his senior season.
The Wolverines are beginning to get seriously involved, and according to Jackson, an offer could be forth coming.
"Michigan's been on me for awhile now. I just talked to coach Frey two weeks ago. He said Michigan needs my film, so they can offer me a scholarship. I sent it to them, so they should have it now. I guess the coaches will be looking at it soon."
At 6-5, 220 pounds, Jackson appears to be a fit at the spinner position, which is currently low in numbers. While Jackson doesn't know much about the aforementioned spinner position, he does know quite a bit about the Michigan program.
"It's big time football! Michigan has top notch facilities, and a winning tradition."
Jackson doesn't claim any favorites or a list of top schools, but admits the Wolverines would shake his recruitment up a bit.
"If they offer, I'll have to consider them. They would definitely be in my top five."
Jackson states that distance is not a factor, that he has no problem leaving the state of Florida. However, two in-state programs could alter his thinking if they up their level of interest.
"Florida and Florida State are still recruiting me. I've been to six home games at Florida, and was there for an unofficial visit during the spring. Florida State wants to see a couple of my games before offering."
Only one school seems to have separated itself from the pack at this time.
"I'm going to Wake Forest September 18, for an official visit."
Jackson has already qualified, boasting a 3.7 gpa, and a 1120 SAT score. Playing time is not an important priority, but he's looking for tradition, and a chance to win.
