Safety Prospect Titus Jackson

There probably isn't a prospect in the west who can combine the testing numbers on the field and in the classroom like Pomona (Calif.) Diamond Ranch safety <b>Titus Jackson</b>. He ran a 4.4 40 and has a 4.2 GPA...

With high school teammate Charles Brown commanding a lot of attention from college programs, one player benefiting from that exposure is Pomona (Calif.) Diamond Ranch safety Titus Jackson (6-0, 185).

Jackson received quite a bit of interest during the May contact period, with contact coming from most of the Pac-10, Mountain West and WAC.

While he didn't receive any scholarship offers, Jackson did put together a top five list, and expects his first offer to be coming soon.

"My top five is UCLA, Oregon, Arizona State, Stanford and California," said Jackson. "I think Stanford is in the process of offering me."

Though his dad played at Washington State, Jackson has gotten little interest from the Cougars.

At the San Diego Nike Camp, Jackson had what he felt was a "decent showing" and thought he improved in several areas, specifically in his footwork.

He put up some very impressive numbers, clocking a 4.4 forty, a 3.9 shuttle, jumping 34 inches and doing 14 reps on the bench. "I did well in the testing but liked the one-on-one's the best."

Jackson showed interest in UCLA by attending the UCLA One-Day Camp. Being close friends with committed Bruin quarterback, Osaar Rasshan, the two have talked about playing together in college.

UCLA assistant coach Eric Bieniemy is recruiting Jackson.

Jackson said having no offers is allowing him to take some time and check out all his options. When the offers come, he expects the decision to come after spending time thinking about which one to take.

As a junior, Jackson had 60 tackles with 7 interceptions.

He has a 4.2 GPA and scored a 1070 on his SAT.
