Jackson is coached by former Florida Gators player Elijah Williams, who has kept up a relationship with Oklahoma State associate athletic director for strength and conditioning Rob Glass from the day when Glass was Williams' strength coach at Florida.
The 5-10, 165-pound Jackson reportedly at one time had offers from the likes of Tennessee, Central Florida, Temple, Kentucky, Marshall, and Memphis. On signing day he was supposed to have signed papers with Jacksonville, but did not fax them in hoping that something would develop with a Division I school.
His academic standing has reportedly improved off the last semester and he is set to qualify. He more than qualifies on the field with 4.43 speed, and as a senior earned All-Central Florida first-team honors at receiver finishing with 54 receptions for 1,161 yards and nine touchdowns. He also carried the ball 21 times for 187 yards rushing. As a junior he had 40 catches for 730 yards and 10 touchdowns.
