Decision Looming For Jackson

With plenty of options in front of him, Iowa Central QB Kendall Jackson (6-3, 220) will decide soon on where he will play his final two seasons...

"I plan to make my decision by Friday evening," Jackson told recently. "I have offers right now from Florida A&M, Prairie View A&M, Arkansas-Monticello, Notre Dame College, Fairmont State, Urbana, Virginia Union, Fayetteville State, Central State, Pace and Texas A&M Commerce and Johnson C. Smith.

"I just took a visit to Vanderbilt and they are close to offering, but they haven't yet, so that ones sorta still out there and UTEP is also looking at me too."

Jackson has visited Florida A&M, Prairie View A&M, Pace and Notre Dame College as well and he said of those schools one is sticking out a little more than the others.

"I really like NDC, Jackson noted. "I just want to win, so if Vanderbilt offers, they are SEC and that would be hard to turn down, plus the education, but I like NDC a lot."

With his big arm and the ability to run, Jackson is a dual-threat type of quarterback and he's been focused this offseason on improving his throwing mechanics.

"I have the ability to create when things break down," Jackson said. "I've been working on perfecting my mechanics and also using my eyes to move defensive backs and look them off."

Jackson has already finished up his two-year degree and he will have three years to play two starting this fall.
