St. Edward Lineman Camps At Pitt

Brandon Jackson was one of three linemen from Lakewood (OH) St. Edward that camped at a Pitt prospect camp this summer.

Brandon Jackson, a 6-3, 325 offensive lineman, already has a few offers. Ball State, Toledo, Akron and Ohio have already offered, so he knows the opportunity to play Division I football is there for him. That hasn't stopped him from just settling for four offers.

Jackson holds some interest in Pittsburgh, Michigan and Cincinnati. He might be called a Michigan lean, if the Wolverines were to come through with an offer.

"I'm interested in Michigan," Jackson said. "That's the other school I'm waiting for."

Recently, he was at Pittsburgh's prospect camp.

"It went very well for me," Jackson said of the camp. "I had a good experience at the camp. I learned a lot, had a good time with the coaches. I think I performed very well for them."

Though it was just one day, Jackson crammed as much as he could, learning from Pitt offensive line coach Tony Wise.

"After a few reps, its got easier, every rep got easier," Jackson said. "They had a big emphasis on staying low. Staying low is the thing I have to work on the most. Coach Wise is a very good coach. He has a great attitude. He's a very fiery, very good coach."

As far as getting an offer from the Panthers?

"Yeah, they told me they wanted to wait and see," Jackson said. "They want to see my game film from this coming year, so I'll send them the first three games."

Jackson said after six or seven prospect camps, he is done with camps for the summer. He will turn his attention to his team, and getting ready for his senior season. In addition to Pitt, he attended camps at Cincinnati, Ball State, Michigan and Ohio as well.

Jackson is joined on the St.Edward line by 2012 prospect Kyle Kalis, 6-5, 301. There's also Geoff Mogus, the 6-5, 280-pound lineman that just committed to Northwestern.

"We get that a lot, that we're one of the biggest offensive lines of any high school in the nation," Jackson said. "Maybe some college lines too. We have about a month before we start practice, so we're just preparing for that."
