"I have a lot of offers, but I don't have any favorites," said Jackson. "A lot of schools are recruiting me hard, like Nebraska, West Virginia, USF, UCF, Florida State and a few more.

"I plan to go see some schools this summer, but so far I haven't been many places."

Auburn, Mississippi State, South Carolina and Tennessee of the SEC have extended offers with talk of Florida following suit.

Jackson reports that he has had some recent contact with a pair of those schools.

"I have been hearing from Auburn and I am supposed to call the head coach (Gus Malzhan)," explained Jackson. "I have been hearing from Mississippi State and I like their offense.

"They have a quarterback that has the same skills that I do."
