Husky commit turns recruiter

In early April, Long Beach (Ca.) Poly CB Kameron Jackson decided to put an end to the recruiting process and committed to Washington. Since then, schools up and down the west coast have made it known they like him too and one has even offered. However, he said he's still a solid verbal to the Huskies and hopes to bring his teammate and close friend Corey Waller into the fold as well...

"Me and Corey talk all the time about U-Dub," Kameron told recently. "I think he really likes them and wants to go there, but I think he wants to see the school first and meet the coaches before he decides anything."

Jackson, a talented corner with the ability to play inside over the slot or work his way into a starting role outside, is a player with solid skills and schools from the Pac 10 and the Big 12 have been stopping by Poly to have a look at him as well as some of his other teammates.

"Northern Arizona offered me and Oregon said they are really close," Jackson said. "Coaches from Boise State, New Mexico, Baylor and Missouri have all been by, but I haven't talked to them.

"I'd love to get a bunch of offers, but Washington is where I wanted to play ball and I'm solidly with them. They believed in me and I love coach (Demetrice) Martin and the staff they have there. I'm excited to be committed to them and they really seemed excited that I was committed to them."

Jackson said he and Waller are working on plans to head to Seattle this summer to check things out and he said he'll continue to work on his friend until he's a Dawg.

"I don't push him or anything, but I definitely talk about Washington to him," Jackson said with a chuckle. "He really seems to like them a lot and what they have going on up there. I'd love to keep playing football with him. It would be like staying home if we could keep being teammates."

Jackson said he's been focused on working out this spring and getting stronger and faster.

"Our coaches all say, 'if you aren't improving, you're getting worse' so it's always about pushing yourself to be the best you can be," Jackson said. "I want to have a great senior year and then get focused on playing ball for the Huskies after that."

We'll keep checking in with Jackson over the next few weeks to find out when he will be in town. He said he hopes to make it to one of the Husky camps taking place in June while he's in town.
