Texas Already Looking to '10

The Longhorns have started getting more aggressive with pursuing out-of-state prospects and that includes the Class of 2010. Sophomore wide receiver Jeremy Jackson from Ann Arbor, Mich. is already talking with the Texas coaching staff, but he may be tough to pry away from the Wolverines due to a special connection with the University of Michigan.

With his father being Fred Jackson, the running backs coach for Michigan, it was appropriate the first offer for Ann Arbor Huron WR Jeremy Jackson was the Wolverines. Only a sophomore, Jackson received two more offers this week, bringing his total to three.

"Minnesota offered me," he reported, "Coach Ron Lee called and told me I got the offer and Eastern Michigan just sent an offer in the mail today. It's really good to me because I'm getting a lot of attention and Minnesota is usually a real competitive Big Ten team."

In addition to the three that have offered, a number of schools from across the country have sent mail and been in contact with the youngster.

"I also feel Iowa will offer soon," he said, "and I'm getting mail from Florida, Alabama and Texas. I talked to the Texas wide receivers coach (Bobby Kennedy) and he seems like a real cool guy. I like USC a lot, but haven't heard from them."

The next step for Jackson will be heading to summer camps. A hard worker, he has already begun preparing for these events.

"I'm going to the Michigan camp, probably the Friday Night Lights camp of Florida and the Texas camp. I am running my forty and my shuttle for my track coach in about a week so I can get a feel of where I'm at in terms of speed."

If his forty yard dash is anything like his recruitment, it appears Jeremy Jackson will at least get off to a fast start.
