Jackson Ponders Official Visits

The Gardena (Calif.) Serra five-star cornerback, Adoree Jackson, considering where he'll visit...

Gardena (Calif.) Serra was just a over a minute from falling to Sherman Oaks (Calif.) Notre Dame on Friday night before 2014 five-star Adoree Jackson decided to take matters into his own hands.

Jackson caught a pass from quarterback Jalen Greene before sprinting the rest of the 80-yards to the end zone to tie the game and send it to overtime.

Jackson, Scout's No. 4 rated cornerback who doubles as a receiver and on this night a running back, dropped the game winning touchdown in the first overtime.

He immediately told his quarterback to get him the ball again because he wouldn't make the same mistake twice.

Greene threw Jackson the ball again and Serra went on to win in comeback fashion, behind the will of their star player.

Jackson danced and sang with his teammates following the win before he was surrounded by a few reporters asking about the game winning score… and then a handful of reporters asking where he's going to college.

He admittedly enjoys the attention of the recruiting process but isn't quick to provide answers about where he's leaning because the truth is, he doesn't seem to know.

A source close to his recruitment told FOX Sports' Scout.com that Jackson is leaning toward the Florida, that the Gators and their track and field program is the one to beat. Afterall, Jackson is an Olympic caliber long jumper.

But Jackson himself won't come close to saying Florida is in the lead.

"I say people in the driver's seat include Florida, Florida State, Illinois – my hometown, Notre Dame, UCLA, Oregon and USC is in the mix," Jackson said after the game.

The only school on the sideline for Jackson on Friday night was Miami, a program he says is coming on as of late. "[They're] coming in and talking to me and I like what they're doing."

Jackson says Oregon is also bringing all the have to the table, "[They're] on me tough," he said.

As of Friday evening no official visits were inked on Jackson's calendar, though he does have one in mind. He'd like to visit LSU on Oct. 12 when the Tigers host Florida. "I'm going to call them up and tell my parents ‘Let's get that together'," he said.
