A four-star prospect and the nation's 42nd-ranked wide receiver for the 2008 class, former Henry County athlete Chris Jackson is a talented player. The following was the scouting report on 6-1, 190-pounder as he went through the recruiting process: Jackson is a very good receiver that can beat a defense a number of ways, especially deep. He has deceptive speed and is a long strider. Jackson runs good routes and has excellent body control, concentration and hands. At times he can be a physical and power runner with the ball in his hands. Jackson doesn't mess around going east and west and is a north-south ball carrier all the way.
Recruitment: Jackson committed to Georgia Tech in December of 2006 and was considered a solid verbal to the Yellow Jackets for quite some time. But when former head coach Chan Gailey was fired, Jackson re-opened his commitment and the Ramblin' Wreck's loss proved to be the Crimson Tide's gain. Jackson switched his commitment to Alabama and never looked back.
At Alabama: Jackson enrolls at Alabama as part of a talented wide receiver class. Former five-star recruit Julio Jones will certainly grab everyone's attention but Jackson has the chance to make noise as a first-year player, too.
