SAN ANTONIO — Long Beach, Calif., wide receiver DeSean Jackson talks about his commitment status and his thoughts on Oklahoma during an exclusive OUInsider.com interview.
OUInsider.com: What is your commitment status?
Jackson: "I really don't have one."
OUInsider.com: What schools are you still considering?
Jackson: "Right now, it's out of USC and California. I'm at a point right now you know where I like both schools a lot. I just don't know right now where I'm going. So I'm just going to wait it out for a minute and see what's the best place that fits me."
OUInsider.com: What happened to Oklahoma?
Jackson: "I had a good time out there on my visit, but it just don't really seem like the place for me. Being from L.A. and being used to that excitement of the city, transforming to Oklahoma would have been a big difference. I wasn't really willing to make that kind of a difference, but at the same time I don't have no problem with leaving California."
OUInsider.com: How much did your official visit to Norman in December affect your decision to eliminate Oklahoma?
Jackson: "A lot. There were a couple of nights during my trip where there wasn't too much to do. When you go to college you know you want to have fun and a lot of excitement. We had to go to Oklahoma City to have fun. It was a good place and a little different. I just didn't want to have to adjust to that."
OUInsider.com: Are any of the OU coaches aware that you are down to USC and California?
Jackson: "No, because I haven't really talked to them."
OUInsider.com: Is there any chance that you might reconsider Oklahoma?
Jackson: "Not really. I'm in a situation where I've just got California and USC on mind. I'm just trying to focus on them two schools. I'm not really trying to make my college decision (this week). I just want to have fun in the game and make my decision later."
