  • "There was a lot of great talent at the camp," said Jackson. "There are a lot of things that I need to improve on. Coming off a hip injury, I think I did pretty good."

    He got a chance to work with his position coach, Billy Gonzales, at the camp and came away very impressed.

    "Coach Gonzales is a great guy," said Jackson. "He reminds me of my high school coach, Coach P. He likes physical wide receivers who use their hands a lot and have good footwork."

    Mississippi State is one of six schools that have offered the talented wide out.

    "Right now, I have six school recruiting me; Missouri. Auburn, Alabama, and the three in-state schools - Southern Miss, Ole Miss and Mississippi State.," said Jackson. "I have offers from those six. I think, after I had a really big spring, everybody offered about the same time."

    As of now, he doesn't have the six ranked from one to six. He wants to visit all six before making that decision.

    "I really can't say how they are ranked right now," said Jackson. "I really haven't visited many schools. I'm just enjoying it."

    He plans on visiting two of the six soon.

    "I'm camping at Ole Miss (Friday)," said Jackson. "Later when the coaches get back - most of them are going on vacation - and my parents can go with me I want to visit Auburn."

    As for Mississippi State, they seem to have formed a strong impression with the youngster.

    "There are big things going on at Mississippi State," he said. "They are headed in the right direction.

    "I know that they are going to be in my top 3. I just love the school. Everytime I come up here I get the same feeling. I just love being around the coaches. I don't feel like I have to impress them.

    "It just feels like family here."
