Dequan Jackson (6'2, 200) is a very talented LB out of Robert E Lee High School in Jacksonville, Florida. He's an athletic and powerful OLB who division one programs are really starting to covet.
He holds at least 16 offers, and Southern Miss has thrown their hat into the ring as well.
Jackson recently took a visit to Southern Miss, and talked about it with GoldenEaglePride.com.
"I really liked the campus a lot," Jackson said.
"Coach Disch and the staff really showed us the love. They gave us a tour and showed us the new locker rooms and everything. Then, after the visit Coach Disch called and said the coaches loved me and they wanted to offer me."
Jackson said he doesn't have any leaders at this point, and his main focus is on getting back to work for his senior season.
"I'm ready to get home, get after it, and get back to preparing to shock people in my senior season," he said. "I'm really, really looking forward to my last year of high school ball.
"I'm just going to work hard and let the rest just fall into place. I know that the right school for me will emerge."
