Video: Adoree Jackson talking offense

Sophomore cornerback Adoree Jackson talks to the media after practice about switching to the offensive side of the ball and having a big day, scoring multiple touchdowns.

The Trojans hit the jackpot on signing day in 2014 when five-star prospect Adoree Jackson picked USC. As a true freshman last year Jackson proved to be one of the top cornerbacks in the Pac-12, but he also saw time returning kicks and on offense.

During the first 11 practices of fall camp Steve Sarkisian kept Jackson on the defensive side of the ball. But on Wednesday Jackson switched from a white jersey to a cardinal one and lined up at running back, slot receiver and wide out.

His very first touch was an 80-yard touchdown from quarterback Cody Kessler and he scored at least four more before the practice was over. Jackson was so dynamic with the ball in his hands and he was without question the best offensive player on the field, despite it being his first day on offense.

Jackson will get a few more practices exclusively on offense before Sarkisian makes a change in preparation for game week practices.
