Jackson Adds Big 12 Offer To List Of Suitors

After having steady contact with Neptune Beach (Fla.) wide receiver Kalif Jackson for a couple of weeks West Virginia finally pulled the trigger on Tuesday, extending an offer to the Florida standout.

Neptune Beach (Fla.) wide receiver Kalif Jackson has certainly been a hot commodity on the recruiting circuit as of late.

Jackson (6-4, 205 lbs.) holds offers from more than a dozen BCS programs including Georgia Tech, Louisville, Maryland, Missouri and Rutgers. He added to that list on Tuesday when West Virginia became the latest school to extend an offer.

"I'm very glad I received an offer from West Virginia," Jackson said. "I'm familiar with the type of players they produce. I like the quality of players coming from the school and making it to the next level."

The Mountaineers have been in steady contact with Jackson, which included a recent visit by WVU assistant JaJuan Seider.

"I talked with him a couple of times and he told me they (WVU) were extremely interested in me," Jackson told BlueGoldNews.com. "I've communicated with them by letters, Facebook and twitter."

As a junior, Jackson hauled in 30 catches for 800 yards and nine touchdowns. He averaged 25 yards per reception.

He claims no favorites in his recruitment and plans to narrow his list of suitors down in May. A final decision is expected before his senior campaign.
