Desmond Jackson, CB, 6-1, 196, 4.5 SEGUIN, TEXAS:
JH: How did you summer go?
DJ: "My summer went real well. I stayed in the weight room and got a little bigger and stronger. I also played a little 7-on-7 and went to the UTEP, Texas, and Oklahoma State camp down in Houston."
JH: So how big and strong are you now?
DJ: "I weigh 196 and I am now 6-foot-1. I can bench 305 and my squat went up to 450."
JH: Where are you guys at as far as practice goes?
DJ: "We have a scrimmage at Georgetown coming up on Friday. I will play both cornerback and wide receiver, and I am the punt and kick returner. I am going to be on the field all the time."
JH: Are you still committed to OU?
DJ: "Yes sir, I am."
JH: Since your commitment to OU, has your life changed at all?
DJ: "My life hasn't really changed at all. When I get on the field it makes me work harder. Not only do I have my high school to play hard for, but I know now that I have something to look forward to following high school that will give me a chance to be a success in life. I am working really hard to make sure all my dreams come true."
JH: Do you match-up against the other team's best receiver all the time?
DJ: "If they have a great receiver then I am going to be matched-up with him all night. But other than that I go where our coverage is called."
JH: Do you plan on just taking an official visit to OU?
DJ: "At least two."
JH: Are you still hearing from other schools despite your commitment to OU?
DJ: "I still get letters from other schools. I still get letters from Arizona and Arkansas, and I guess most of the schools that have offered me. But I only talk to Oklahoma."
JH: So you might take more than just the official visit to OU?
DJ: "I am still thinking right now, but my prime choice is Oklahoma. I am considering visiting Arkansas or Iowa to see what they have, but right now my eyes are all on Oklahoma. That would be just to compare Oklahoma to another school."
JH: So are you a solid commitment to OU?
DJ: "Yes sir."
