Bruins Still Lead for Jackson

The College of San Mateo (Calif.) lineman, Dominick Jackson, has a number of schools on him, but the Bruins are still in a comfortable position...

College of San Mateo (Calif.) offensive tackle Dominick Jackson has added a few more offers in the past few weeks, one from the SEC and one from the Big 12.

"Tennessee came by the school and they offered me and are very interested in getting me down there and then Texas Tech came by and they offered me," said Jackson.

In the last week, three Pac-12 schools stopped by too.

"UCLA has come in and Arizona State was by and USC was there on Monday and their offensive line coach was recording me," said Jackson.

UCLA Offensive Line Coach Adrian Klemm was by last week for UCLA, and Jeff Ulbrich also stopped by.

"The linebacker coach, Coach (Jeff) Ulbrich, came by on Wednesday and that was cool," said Jackson.

Jackson said that he continues to be impressed with the Bruin coaching staff.

"I really fell in love with UCLA when I went down there to visit," said Jackson. "I love that environment and I pretty much love that coaching staff. I love how they talk to their kids. It's not old school, they understand how to connect with the kids. Every school that talks to me, I compare it to UCLA."

Jackson said schools are trying to make a push for him, but the Bruins are in a good position for him.

"Right now I still love UCLA and no other school has come close," said Jackson. "Schools are pushing the issue, but that's where it's at. Recruiting hasn't laid off, there is more competition with schools. But UCLA is definitely on the mind."

In the next couple of weeks, a few more schools are expected by, including a pair from the SEC.

"Florida and Texas A&M plan to be at my spring game and I think a lot of other schools are coming up to check me out," said Jackson.

Jackson said many schools want to see him physically.

"I think a lot of the schools are coming by to see me because they are not sure they believe I've lost this much weight," said Jackson. "I'm at 300 from 340 so they want to see how I look and see if it's true."
