Recruiting: Another School In The Mix For R.J.?

For Houston Westside tailback <b>R.J. Jackson</b>, the recruiting process continues as he contemplates where he might wind up, but we recently learned what his next move might be, how that could impact his decision and when that decision might be made.

Asked how things have been, R.J. Jackson said, "Just staying low. Doing 7-on-7."

The state's No. 1 tailback, though, is looking at the possibility of taking one more unofficial visit and that would be to the University of Miami. He wants to examine his options with the South Beach school along with those of his top three (LSU, Oklahoma State and Texas).

"(Miami TE) Coach (Mario) Cristobal said that if he didn't think I could be a factor then they wouldn't have asked me to come down," Jackson said. "And they're also going to review my game film. I'm trying to make it there sometime in early August."

"If Miami were to offer, it would throw a monkey wrench in my plans," the 5-11, 200-pounder added.

Jackson also said that if an offer in is fact extended, UM would be given careful and complete consideration for earning his verbal.

Regarding when his decision may go down, R.J. said "sometime before summer is over. Right now, it looks like that is going to happen."

Other teams that are still somewhat in the mix include "Florida (offer), Georgia (offer) and Houston (offer)", though their shot appears to be slim as opposed to LSU, Miami (provided the 'Canes offer), Oklahoma State and Texas.
