Jackson Goes With UNC

Tim Jackson announced at a Friday afternoon press conference at his school that he will sign with North Carolina.

"It comes down to which school is the best decision for me - a school where I feel most comfortable, is a great fit, has strong academics and is nationally known," Jackson said.

"Without further ado I'd like to announce that I'll be attending the University of North Carolina."

The 6-5, 220-pound defensive end from St. Petersburg (Fla.) Gibbs also considered offers from Stanford, Wake Forest, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt and South Florida.

Jackson recorded 42 tackles and eight sacks as a junior and raised his sack total to 12 as a senior.
