"[Those three schools] look like they're going in the right direction and I enjoyed myself when I visited," Jackson said.
Although the announcement is days away, Jackson claims he hasn't made his final decision yet.
"Everybody in my family is going to help me out," Jackson said. "But, I'm looking for where I feel best at."
Jackson has taken only one official visit – to UNC in mid-September with teammates Ryne Giddens and Angelo Hadley.
"When I went to North Carolina, it seemed like they had a good family atmosphere," Jackson said. "And they're having a good recruiting class now."
Jackson has made unofficial trips to both Louisville and Michigan.
Less than a month ago, Hadley, who Jackson has known since the seventh grade, verbally committed to UNC.
"I don't really know; [Hadley's commitment] is going to have a little affect I guess," Jackson said.
"We've talked about [playing together in college], but we're not a package deal or anything."
Recently, Jackson spoke to Everett Withers, who serves as his primary recruiter and coaches UNC's defensive backs.
"He asked me how I feel about them and what're going to be the factors for me," Jackson said. "And I told him. He just said he'll be waiting on my decision."
