Five offers for Jackson

Gainesville (Fla.) Eastside athlete Sir Jackson is a talented prospect from the Sunshine State that currently sits at five offers. His first came from an ACC school a few months ago.
"N.C. State was my first offer," Jackson said. "I am dealing with Coach (Des) Kitchings. He told my coach and my dad that they were offering. They said they were offering and that they liked me. They wanted me to consider coming there. They like me as a wide receiver."
Jackson has taken a trip to check out the Wolfpack earlier this year.
"They are the only school that I have seen," Jackson said. "I visited them over spring break. I like their practice, how intense it was and how hard the guys went."
Over the past month, N.C. State has seen an increase in competition for the services of Jackson. He added offers during the spring from Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Middle Tennessee, and Ohio. He also reports interest from Georgia Tech, Louisville, and Marshall.
"The new offers have been interesting," Jackson said. "I didn't know I was liked by so many coaches. It is good though. I am hoping to land even more offers. For right now, I am pretty happy with what I have."
The 5-foot-11, 175-pound prospect says a majority of schools like him as a wide receiver, but some are also evaluating him as a defensive back. He has a few summer plans scheduled at this time, including a camp visit with the Yellow Jackets who are interested in him as a defensive back.
"I am going to Georgia Tech on either Friday or Saturday," Jackson said. "I am going to Florida Atlantic in two weeks. I am also going to visit FIU. I don't know if I am going to be able to make it to North Carolina (State) again."
At this point in the process, Jackson says he intends to take his time with making a decision.
"I am just going with the flow right now and waiting to see if I get some more stuff," Jackson said. "I like N.C. State but in talking with a lot of other coaches, I like the other schools too."
In addition to football, where Jackson is the quarterback for Eastside, he is also a guard on the school's basketball team and runs the 300 meter hurdles in track and field. As a junior on the football field, Jackson ran for 412 yards, passed for 555 yards, and had 184 yards receiving. He scored nine touchdowns.
Jackson is the son of former NFL wide receiver Willie Jackson, Jr. who played for the Jacksonville Jaguards, Cincinnati Bengals, New Orleans Saints, Atlanta Falcons, and Washington Redskins after a collegiate career at the University of Florida.
