Boise State moves up for Jackson

One of the best defensive backs at the Los Angeles NIKE Camp still hasn't picked up any offers but Demetrius Jackson said interest has picked up in recent weeks and the Baldwin Park, Calif., recruit is getting excited.
Jackson, a 5-foot-11, 185-pound prospect, said Washington State, Boise State, New Mexico State, Northwestern and Stony Brook are showing more interest and that the Broncos stand out the most at this point.
"I've been liking Boise State the most, the way they've been coming after me and the coach said he wants all my information and they've been liking me for a little while now," Jackson said.
"(An offer from Boise State) would be real big. It depends on which schools really offer me. Right now I'm just trying to pick up some offers. I like the coaching staff at Boise State and the program and how it's run. They win games over there. That's incredible."
Maybe one reason why it has been relatively slow for Jackson, an aggressive, physical cornerback, because he had to sit out his junior season after transferring to Baldwin Park from Duarte.
He got exposure at the LA NIKE Camp and was supposed to work out at the Palo Alto NIKE Camp but couldn't make it to Stanford. Jackson is talented enough to probably pick up some offers once he works out at summer camps.
Idaho, Navy, Northern Arizona and Stanford had stopped by his school soon after the LA NIKE Camp and now others have come in including Boise State which has shot up the charts for him.
Jackson, who took an unofficial visit to Stanford during his spring break, recently said his favorite school is UCLA but the Bruins haven't been that involved yet.
"Things are picking up a lot," Jackson said. "It's getting really exciting."
