Recruiting: Jackson Wraps Up Camps At OSU

One of the two standout players from Fort Bend (Hightower), Texas attending Sunday's Oklahoma State half-day high school camp was safety Harvey Jackson. The 6-2 1/2, 190-pound Jackson helped Hightower to a 13-1 record last season and is bigger, stronger, and faster for this season's run toward a state championship. Jackson picked up offers this week after being at both the OU and OSU camps.

The Oklahoma State coaches and witnesses in Boone Pickens Stadium saw plenty out of Jackson on Sunday.

"It (camp) went good," answered Jackson. "The coaches like me and I like the school. It (stadium) was good, one of the best ones that I have seen. Those facilities are as good as I've seen out there."

Asked about his school choices, Jackson didn't beat around the bush, he was completely open. "I really haven't made a lot of decisions yet, but I do have a list of schools," he said.

We asked if he would let us know his list of schools. "Nebraska, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma. Northwestern, Vanderbilt, Baylor, and U-of-H," said Jackson of his choices.

He has also been offered by Utah, SMU, Duke, and Stanford. There are some really good schools mixed in there.

"Northwestern and Vanderbilt are really known for the quality of education that you get," said Jackson. "That matters, but it's not all that matters. I am thinking about majoring in Engineering and if not, maybe in some form of Business."

As for the timing of his decision, the physical tackler with good cover skills with his 4.6 speed says it will come a little further into the season.

"It really doesn't matter," said the physical playing defender. "I'll commit sometime early in the season."
