Jackson is a blue-chip, can't miss, prospect that many schools have at the top of their wish list for the class of 2003. As a junior, Lawrence established himself as the top pass rusher in California after recording 134 tackles and 20 quarterback sacks. He earned 1st team All-State Underclass in addition to Junior All-American honors by Student Sports.
On the recruiting front, Jackson has asserted that he plans to play his college football outside of California. This could be great news for Duck fans, since he recently told SuperPrep that Oregon currently holds a slight lead for his services and that he plans to attend their summer football camp. Jackson also indicated that he admires Oregon's intensity on the field, how united the team is and even enjoys cooler weather. Other favorites that he has mentioned include Miami, Colorado, BYU, Northwestern and Arizona. The rumor is that Oregon has already offered Lawrence Jackson a scholarship.
