Florida's Richard Jackson Chimes In On Huskers

If there's one thing that Head Coach Bill Callahan of Nebraska likes, it's big name wide receivers that can make life easy on his quarterbacks. Securing the commitment of Florida's Richard Jackson would go a long way towards doing just that. Jackson spoke with us about official visits on his mind and how he feels about all of the schools that have offered him.

Richard Jackson helps provide an excellent mix of blocking, receiving ability and quickness which will prove invaluable to whatever school manages to secure his services.  The four-star wide receiver out of Clermont, Florida has already hauled in enough offers to assure him of a quality education and a shot at playing big time college football on some of its grandest stages. 

Jackson recalls his total offer amount to be somewhere in the mid twenties with names like Florida State, Notre Dame, Miami, Clemson, South Carolina, Nebraska, Kansas State, Louisville, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Auburn and South Florida all in the mix for the athlete.  Finished with the grueling summer roads of unofficial visits, combines and camps, he looks towards the meat of the recruiting season when official visits are taken.

Currently, Jackson has two schools in mind for an official visit.  "I'll probably take one to Miami and Notre Dame.  Those are the only two locks right now," said Jackson.  He claims no favorites but says that Miami, Florida State, Notre Dame, Clemson, South Carolina, Georgia Tech and Nebraska are starting to separate themselves from the pack.

In terms of how he feels regarding his Cornhusker recruitment, Jackson is merely feeling things out and taking his time so that he can make a proper decision.  "Right now, I haven't really talked to Coach Jordan much because I've been doing things with my family but nothing's changed. Nebraska's still on my list.  I'm just still doing my research," he said.
