Hometown: College Park, Georgia
High School: North Clayton High School
Notes: College Park (GA) North Clayton standout Clarence Jackson had a monster junior season. A two-way standout for North Clayton High, he rushed for 1,800 yards and 32 touchdowns as a tailback. For his efforts he was named the Clayton County Player of the Year and earning Honorable Mention All-State honors. Defensively, he totaled 15 sacks from his outside linebacker position.
While he has a preference on where he plays, Jackson admits that schools are recruiting him to play on both side of the football.
"I'm a running back," he stated. "That's what I want to play. The colleges say they can see me as a linebacker but after they see the tape they want me as a running back.
"I have some recruiting me to play linebacker... Ole Miss, NC State, and Kentucky like me at running back."
Jackson claims offers from Ole Miss, Kentucky, East Carolina, and NC State and is hearing from several other programs. He already has an early favorite.
"I believe my top five would be Ole Miss, Auburn, Kentucky, NC State, and probably Georgia Tech," said Jackson. "Ole Miss... I'm kind of leaning that way. They are together down there. They are a real family and everything.
"I don't know when I'm going to make a decision. I haven't thought about that yet."
