Jackson One of the West Coast's Best

With at least two dozen scholarships already in his possession, Gardena (CA) Junipero Serra five-star cornerback Adoree Jackson is one of the best players on the West Coast.

Wisconsin has offered and developed relationships with many of the top talents around the nation, especially on the West Coast. One of the most highly-regarded and sought after recruits in this year class is Gardena (CA) Junipero Serra five-star cornerback Adoree Jackson.

"Recruiting is cool right now," said Jackson. "I am just managing everything with it. I got 24 offers, but I don't have an offer from Wisconsin. If they offered, I would look more into them. They would be a school of my interest if they offer and had what I'm looking for in a school."

Jackson stands at 5-11, 185 pounds and ranks as the No. 2 cornerback in the nation. With his recruitment in full swing, Jackson credits all his attention from his previous season winning a state championship, as he finished the season with 72 tackles, six interceptions and 20 touchdowns.

"Everyone has offered me as a corner first, but all the colleges have offered me as a receiver, too," said Jackson. "They want me at receiver or defensive back. I talk to them about being a full time defensive back but to get some packages on offense and then kick returner and punt returner."

Jackson said Florida State, Florida, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oregon, Texas A&M, UCLA and USC are the schools sticking out to him, but reiterated that he would add Wisconsin to that list should the Badgers offer.

While many recruits have started to narrow their choices or think about committing, Jackson is not at that stage as he heads into the spring.

"When the season starts back up is when I am looking to narrow things down," Jackson said. "I am looking for a school with a great environment, coaching staff and players. I would also say that has a great track team as well."
