Jackson Taking Things Slow

The West's top prospect, Gardena (Calif.) Serra cornerback Adoree Jackson, won't rush through the recruiting process...

Gardena (Calif.) Serra cornerback Adoree Jackson continues to rack up offers that span the country.

Just this week, the West's top-ranked prospect picked up offers from Oregon and Florida State.

Those two join a long list of suitors for the five-star.

"I have no idea about when I'll narrow my list down," said Jackson. "Hopefully I'll narrow it down to a top five, or I just might keep it to the schools that are standing out to me, those that are recruiting me the hardest."

Jackson said prior to the Oregon and Florida State offers that eight schools were standing out.

"Standing out to me right now are UCLA, USC, LSU, Florida, Miami, Texas A&M, Michigan and Notre Dame," said Jackson, who later added Florida State and Oregon to that mix. "But I don't have one favorite right now."

When Jackson gets to college, he anticipates playing primarily corner, but he won't rule out offensive contributions.

"Everyone has offered me as a corner first, but all the colleges have offered me as a receiver too," said Jackson. "They want me at receiver or defensive back. I talk to them about being a full time defensive back but to get some packages on offense and then kick returner and punt returner."

After helping lead the Cavs to the CIF State Division II championship, Jackson was a part of Serra's CIF-SS winning basketball team, that had their season end on Tuesday. Now, he'll go into track where he's one of the top jumpers in the country.

"I might take a little break before track, but I'm just doing the long jump and 4x400 this year," said Jackson.

Brandon is in his ninth year with Scout.com and FOXSportsNext, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout Network since 2003.
