Jackson excited by offer from the Huskies

He doesn't have a lot of offers yet, but make no mistake, Long Beach Poly CB Kameron Jackson will have his share of recruiting attention in the coming weeks and months. Washington actually was the first school to extend an offer and the talented defensive back admitted to Dawgman.com that that puts them in a very nice position for his services...

"Washington being the first school to offer me was huge," Jackson told Dawgman.com recently. "They offered me and my teammate Corey Waller at the same time so it was really cool to get offers together.

"Coach (Johnny) Nansen and coach (Demetrice) Martin are the two coaches recruiting me for them. Coach Martin said he loved my technique and how I have great coaching at Long Beach Poly. He said he thought they did a good job of getting their kids ready to play college football because of the way they teach the game."

Jackson said because of Washington's offer that puts them in the lead at a crucial time in the decision-making process.

"Actually, I thought about committing and went home and talked to my parents, but they said to wait a little while," Jackson said. "I want to commit early and I might do it in April or somewhere around there so them offering me first makes a huge impression and it's something I will always take into account when I make my decision."

Besides the interest from Washington, Jackson said he's been getting lots of calls from Oregon and Michigan and thinks an offer could be on the way from the Ducks in the near future.

"They said they like me a lot, but that they are evaluating a bunch of guys right now," Jackson said. "We'll see, but I'm not closing anyone out right now. It's too early to do that right now, but I will pretty soon."

Jackson is a talented player, posting a 4.5 forty time to go along with a 34-inch vertical.

As a junior, Jackson posted 25 tackles, four interceptions and had at least 10 passes defensed for a team that was a bit down last year putting up a 7-5 record.

"It was a little disappointing, but we still have my senior year and I think we will be a lot better," Jackson said. "We have a lot of talented guys and I think we will be much more consistent this coming season."

Jackson said he hopes to make it north to visit Washington for a spring practice or two during the month of April and could even end up coming up for their 'Rising Stars' camp in June.

"Me and Corey would probably come up together to visit," Jackson said. "I want to see what they are all about, but so far I really like what I've learned about them.

"The staff seems cool and they made a lot of improvement last year as a team. I think they can do some pretty big things next year and it could be fun to be a part of the building of the program back to where they used to be."
