So There is No Confusion

The Oregon Ducks added another verbal commitment to the 2009 football recruiting class. This time corner back Brian Jackson, 5-10, 184, Hoover (Ala.) Hoover HS, told Oregon Defensive Back Coach John Neal that he was going to head to Oregon for his college playing career.

Brian Jackson had considered holding off until National Letter of Intent day before announcing where he was going but there was some things that influenced him to go ahead and pull the trigger.

"People still thought I was on the market so I thought I might as well get it over with," said Jackson of his commitment to the Duck. "I just couldn't pass up the opportunity."

Jackson had 161 tackles and three interceptions, was a ASWA First Team All-State defensive back and All-Metro Safety First Team for a team that is traditionally one of the nation's very best prep program.

He visited the Eugene campus on the weekend of and January 8th and fell in love with it. During the recruiting process he had received offers from Oklahoma State, Tulane and Central Florida plus having interest from Alabama, Auburn and Florida.

The Ducks now have 18 verbal commitments. No commitment is binding until a National Letter of Intent is signed. The first day an LOI can be signed and received by a football program is Wednesday, February 4th.
