No Shortage of Options for WR Jaylon Jackson caught up with Cedar Hill inside receiver Jaylon Jackson for the latest on his overall recruitment and standing with Texas Tech.

Cedar Hill (Texas) head coach Joey McGuire may field the most talented stable of wide receivers in the country for the next two seasons as 2017 Scout 300 prospects Charleston Rambo, Camron Buckley, and Jaylon Jackson all look to shred opposing defenses for the defending state champs.

Interestingly for Red Raider fans, all three prospects have been extended scholarship offers by Texas Tech.

Jaylon Jackson plays inside receiver for the Dallas-Fort Worth area high school, and the 5-foot-10, 160-pound speed demon was able to put up over 500 all-purpose yards and three touchdowns as a sophomore on a stacked football team. He will look to see an expanded role in coach Cedar Hill's offense this fall.

"We have a spread offense with a lot of motioning going on. We use a lot of different packages. We used to run the ball but now we're more of a passing team. We like to go deep, catch people slipping on a post or something, and as an inside receiver I do most of the motion on jet sweeps and stuff like that."

Teammate Camron Buckley, whom interviewed earlier this week, is very close with Jackson and the two have discussed playing together at the next level. Texas Tech is currently the only school that has offered both players.

"Me and Camron, we've been playing ball with each other since we were real young. It would be great for us if we were to go to the same school. We're real close. That would just be phenomenal for us to get to play ball together at a D1 college or any college."

Texas Tech's offense is intriguing to the Metroplex prospect. While he hasn't made a visit yet, the 2017 prospect thinks highly of the Red Raiders.

I was trying to get down there this summer, but I'd have to get with my coaches and see about that. I like Texas Tech's offense because they go deep a lot, they spread the field. They love to throw the ball. It's great.

Other schools' offenses are standing out to Jackson as well.

"Baylor does it a lot. Ohio State, I like the way they stretch the field, and then attack."

Distance will play no factor in his decision as his parents have told him they will support him no matter where he chooses to sign.

It's been a busy summer for the Cedar Hill prospect, despite being sidelined while recovering from ACL surgery he had back in June.

"I've been to Oklahoma State, Ohio State, Baylor, and this weekend I should be going to Oklahoma. I'm trying to get to Tennessee next weekend."

A repeat state championship is on the line. With Cedar Hill's fall camp beginning on Monday Aug. 10, does Jackson have any personal goals for this season?

"I hate dropping balls. It would be phenomenal if I could go a season with no dropped balls, a perfect season of catching them."

With opposing defenses forced to dedicate attention to two other four-star receivers on the field at the same time, Jackson should have plenty of opportunities to make good on his goal.

Jackson holds offers from Kansas, Oklahoma State, SMU, and Texas Tech. He reports interest from Baylor, Ohio State, Oklahoma, and TCU among others.
