Alvarez Pays Jonathan Jackson In-Home Visit

Jonathan Jackson took his visit to Penn State last weekend, and received an in-home visit from Coach Barry Alvarez Monday evening.

"My Penn State trip was cool," said wide receiver, defensive back, Jonathan Jackson. "Penn State has good academics and its Penn State football, you know what I mean? Penn State is a big time program.

"I've also visited Minnesota, Syracuse and Wisconsin.

"Those four schools are my favorites. I don't have a leader.

"Coach (Barry) Alvarez is visiting tonight. Syracuse and Minnesota will be here either Tuesday or Wednesday.

"Coach Paterno will be visiting next week sometimes. I've pretty much asked the coaches every question that I had. I just need to make a decision now."

Jackson, a 6-foot-1, 180-pounder, from Philadelphia (Pa.) West Catholic is a three-year varsity starter that was named 2nd team all-state in 2002.

Although most services are ranking him as a wide receiver, we feel that he'd be a better safety prospect at the next level.
