Jackson An Option For TCU?

Lake Dallas, TX defensive back Joshua Jackson is a prospect the Frogs continue to watch.

Lake Dallas, TX defensive back Joshua Jackson gave his commitment to Iowa last month, choosing the Hawkeyes over offers from Nevada, New Mexico State and interest from several others.

Jackson helped his team to the second round of the Class 4A playoffs in 2012, picking up 40 tackles and earning district 5-4A honors. He's helped the Falcons to a 4-1 start in 2013.

Despite his commitment to Iowa, Jackson continues to draw interest from other programs. He recently added two more offers.

"Washington State and UNT have offered me," he said. "I've been getting letters from other schools and communicating with some. Colorado said they could be offering me pretty soon and I've still been keeping in touch with TCU. That's really all."

Jackson is happy with his commitment to the Hawkeyes; choosing them for mostly the family atmosphere he saw when he visited over the summer. He's yet to make a game this season.

"I liked all the people up there and the coaches were great," Jackson said of why he chose Iowa. "I got to meet all of the players and I had a great experience up there. It really felt like home when I was up there."

While his commitment to Iowa appears solid, that hasn't stopped the local program, TCU, from continuing their recruitment for Jackson.

"The first time I talked to them they said they were really interested in me and be told me if I did good at the camp they were going to offer me," he said. "I think I did good at the camp I just haven't got an offer. They told me they were going to come see me play but I don't think they have yet.

Jackson spoke to his recruiter, Dan Sharp, a little over a week ago and the two talked about a possible visit to see a Frogs game in person.

"I talked to Coach Sharp about a week ago," he said. "He was asking me if I wanted to go to a game and to call him when I wanted to come. I'd definitely go to a TCU game."

Despite the Frogs 2-3 start, Jackson feels the Frogs have played well and he anticipates they will continue to improve.

"I think they're doing pretty good, they're playing against good competition. As they get more into conference I think they're going to start doing better."
