Brandon Jackson remains very interested in Wisconsin. The question is whether the Badgers are still interested in him?


The B.T. Washington High School (Houston) running back expected to take an official visit to Wisconsin Dec. 19, but the trip was put on hold.


"I was going to and two days before I was going up there they had to postpone it," Jackson said. "Why? I don't know."


The visit has yet to be rescheduled and Jackson says, "That is something I'm really going to have to think about. I haven't really heard that much from them…since that postponement."


In December, Jackson told The Insiders' Allen Wallace that Wisconsin and Arizona stood a 50/50 chance of landing him. The two schools are joined by Oklahoma at the top of Jackson's wish list, though the Wildcats are the only one of the three that has offered a scholarship. Wisconsin had kept in close contact, but, according to Jackson, is waiting on his ACT score, which Jackson expects to receive within the next two weeks.


Oklahoma, meanwhile, "came and gave me a home visit and I think they are going to offer me when I take an official visit but I haven't heard anything officially yet."


He has not been able to schedule an official visit with the Sooners, and as he stated, "time is winding down."


Arizona, on the other hand, has continued to show strong interest.


"Arizona's keeping pretty good contact," said Jackson, who is scheduled to visit the Wildcats this weekend.


Jackson also has a scholarship offer from Stephen F. Austin, a Division I-AA school in Nacogdoches, Texas


They have been wonderful," Jackson said. "If everything don't work out with these D-I schools, I'd love to go there."


In his senior season, Jackson ran for 1,126 yards and 14 touchdowns on 136 carries. B.T. Washington finished 9-3 this season, reaching the second round of Texas 5-A state playoffs.
