Jackson Takes Another Visit

The Gardena (Calif.) Serra five-star, Adoree Jackson, visited LSU over the weekend...

Two-way standout Adoree Jackson is the top player in the West region this year and the No. 5 player in the nation in the Scout 100. He's a shut down corner but has really blossomed in to a game breaking receiver and is easily among the most dynamic playmakers in the country.

Jackson took his first official visit two weeks ago to Oklahoma and was in Baton Rouge to check out LSU this past weekend.

"This was my first time visiting LSU and I really liked it a lot. I took some visits in the South in the summer to Florida and Tennessee but didn't make it out to LSU. I loved the game atmosphere there, the fans were great and I really enjoyed meeting the layers and coaches.

"I spent time with all the coaches and had a chance to sit down specifically with Coach Henry, the WR coach and Coach Raymond the DB coach. All of the schools are telling me I can play both ways but they actually have a guy doing it.

"I saw Jeryl Brazil playing on both sides of the ball so that shows me the coaches aren't just telling me what I want to hear, if you can do it, they'll give you the opportunity. The coaches said they want their playmakers on the field and that's what they see me as."

Jackson said the tradition LSU has of producing NFL defensive backs is another thing that intrigues him.

"I know about their reputation of getting their DBs in to the League (NFL)," Jackson said. "That's caught my attention two years ago when I first started getting recruited. I remember telling me if LSU offered me, they would be one of my top schools and I also like the track program a lot and would double sport there if I chose LSU.

"Coach Miles is a real cool guy as well and seems like a fun guy to play for. LikeI said, I really loved the visit and LSU is definitely a school I can see myself at. I'm not close to making a decision but they'll be in it until the very end."

Moving forward, Jackson said he hasn't set up any other official visits yet but mentioned Florida State and Oregon as possibilities. He's also looking heavily at local schools USC and UCLA but would only do an unofficial visit since they're close to home.
