Gathering offers from coast to coast from the likes of Alabama, Oregon, USF, Notre Dame, USC, Wisconsin and a handful more, Jackson is known to many as a tremendous pass rusher with great size for the linebacker position. With fall season approaching, USFNation.com caught up with the local Tampa star for the latest.
"Everything's been going good, I've been spending time with the team and getting better as a team," Jackson said. "I've been trying to improve my speed and lateral quickness," Jackson said referring to what he's trying to improve on for the upcoming season.
With Coach Taggart growing up in nearby Bradenton, FL, one of his biggest priorities when taking over the Bulls was to snag local talent residing in nearby Tampa. So far in the 2014 class, he's had great success and the talented pass rusher has taken notice. It happens to be that Jackson is very familiar with a few of the 2014 USF commitments and the possibility of playing with them would be very intriguing.
"For sure, I loved playing with the guys I grew up with, like Deiondre Porter, Tajee Fullwood, and Kyle Gibson," Jackson said. "It's a plus for me, it's more of an advantage to have more Tampa guys and stuff, people from the state of Florida coming to play for USF."
Jackson released a top 5 list of schools in the past that wasn't a firm five according to Jackson. USFNation.com got the latest concerning that to see if anything has changed.
"Yeah, but I'm not really releasing it because I'm still working on what schools I'm going to take my five official visits to, so I'm not set on that yet," Jackson said. "No visits are set in stone because I have stuff I have to do personally between testing and stuff. I have to get other things coordinated with the dates of the games. Certain games are at night and during the day time, stuff like that," Jackson said.
Vincent states the one significant factor that will lead the talented Tampa star to his collegiate choice.
"Anything that makes me feel comfortable."
As a Junior, Jackson recorded 62 tackles, eight sacks and nine tackles for a loss.
