Jackson, who committed to Rutgers last May, officially visited Rutgers this weekend, where is versatility was a key discussion point with the coaching staff.
“I can play anywhere,” Jackson said. “[Offensive line coach Mitch Browning] said they’ll try me out wherever – tackle, guard, center. But I’ll most likely kick down inside to guard or center. I can play anywhere, so whatever they want.”
Jackson said he enjoyed the low-key environment and time spent with the rest of the 2015 commitments in the class and coaching staff.
“There wasn’t any pressure,” Jackson said. “It was just me chilling with my future teammates. I’m going to remember that because it was a great time. Also, the coaches are just smart dudes. Coach Browning had me doing drills, like pass steps and everything. He’s already putting me to work.”
Center Derrick Nelson hosted Jackson on his official visit.
“He was a really cool, laid-back guy,” Jackson said. “He just said be ready to run. When you get here, they’re going to gas you.”
As a growing offensive lineman, the dining portion of Jackson’s official visit stood out.
“I’ll definitely remember the food,” Jackson said. “It was really good actually. Steak, lobster – it can’t get better.”
The next step for 6-foot-4, 275-pound Jackson is inking his National Letter of Intent.
“Signing Day is next week, and I’m ready for it,” Jackson said. “I can’t wait to sign. Yes sir.”
