When will Jackson get to Lincoln?

One of the more interesting pieces of the 2012 class is actually a 2011 recruiting class member. Charles Jackson failed to qualify last year and has worked hard to get a passing test score to get to Lincoln. What is his current status and will he sign again tomorrow?

Say the words Charles Jackson to a Nebraska fan and they will ask you what the latest status is for Jackson. Jackson was a key piece to the 2011 recruiting class for Nebraska and failed to qualify out of high school.

Like Braylon Heard before him, Jackson has decided to grind out taking the test again and again in an effort to gain his eligibility. Jackson said that he recently took the SAT and is set to take the ACT in the coming weeks.

"I just took the SAT a weekend ago," Jackson said. "I will be taking the ACT in a couple of weeks. I should know the test results from the SAT in a couple of weeks and I should have the ACT score by the end of February."

There won't be any paperwork in front of Jackson to sign tomorrow to re-commit/re-sign with Nebraska, but that doesn't mean he's not coming. He said that if he got the test score he needed right now he would be on a redeye to Lincoln tonight.

"I won't be signing with Nebraska tomorrow, but I know Nebraska is where I am going. I just have to get a passing test score. I feel very good about the SAT test I just took and I feel very good about the ACT test coming up."

The status on Jackson is something that is asked about a lot on the Internet message boards. Jackson says that it's the interest by Nebraska fans in his current situation and their support that is motivating him to get to Lincoln as soon as he can.

"It's motivation for me. It's 100% motivation for me. I think that it's because of the fans why I still want to get to Nebraska. They come on my Twitter page and ask me how I am doing. I am always reaching out to the fans giving them a little update."
