JR RB Prospect Terrell Jackson

Corona Centennial running back prospect <b>Terrell Jackson</b> is generally considered the best running back prospect in SoCal in the high school junior class. He's getting serious recruiting attention, especially from the Bruins...

They call him "Action Jackson," and there is a reason why. Terrell Jackson, a senior-to-be at Corona (Calif.) Centennial High School, scored 50 touchdowns last season as a junior. The 5-9 and 190 pound running back prospect rushed for 2,344 yards and 44 touchdowns and also caught 6 touchdown passes. That is a career for some.

"I owe it all to my linemen," Jackson said.

Jackson is a humble young man for being so talented. He is an elusive back that is extremely versatile.

"I run more like a Marshall Faulk," he said. "I can catch and block too. I am an all-purpose type of guy. I have speed to get to the outside and I run between the tackles. I love hitting that hole hard and getting into the secondary and making that move or lowering the shoulder. I am a finesse and power guy."

According to Jackson, he has scholarship offers right now from California and Hawaii, although it is two other schools that stand out at the moment.

"Right now, it is UCLA and USC. UCLA has shown me the most love so far and they have made me feel like I'm their number one guy. USC is cool too. I saw some of their spring ball and I like their coaches. It's between them right now. I am also looking at Arizona State, Oregon, Washington State and Cal.

"I want to be playing by my sophomore year. I don't want to pick a place where I am riding the bench for four years. Don't get me wrong, I know there is competition everywhere but I am not going to pick a school with seven running backs. I just don't want to sit in a long line."

Jackson plans on attending the Nike camp in Los Angeles. He is not sure just yet where he will attend any summer football camps.
