One of the top prospects from the state of Florida is safety Kyle Jackson from Neptune Beach (Fla.) Fletcher High School. Jackson, 6-1 and 180 pounds, recorded nine interceptions last season as a junior.
"I read the play before it happens," Jackson said. "I study film but it is mainly instincts. I know formations and what they will run and I just make the play. But my best thing I do and what I love to do is that big hit. I love hitting."
According to Jackson, he currently has a dozen scholarship offers including ones from Florida, Florida State, Nebraska, LSU, Georgia Tech, South Carolina, Clemson, Vanderbilt and Alabama.
"Right now, Florida and Georgia Tech are my two favorite teams. After them, I am completely open with everyone. I grew up a Florida fan and I live right here in Florida. My mom prefers me to stay close to home and I am the youngest in my family. Plus, Ciatrick Fason is my best friend and he is a running back there. One of my coaches here had some good things to say about Georgia Tech. They have great academics and they are low on safeties."
Jackson, who wants to possibly major in broadcasting, carries a 3.2 grade point average. This summer, he plans on attending the one day camps at Florida and Georgia Tech.
