Adoree' Jackson had an outstanding junior season that earned him an early five-star rating by Rivals.com and now his recruitment is really taking off.
In the last few days the Gardena (Calif.) Serra cornerback has landed offers from Texas A&M and Florida and some other top programs are showing renewed interest.
The two SEC offers are big for Jackson, a 5-foot-10, 172-pound recruit who is also fantastic at wide receiver and on special teams.
"Especially both of them being in the SEC I know they're going to compete and even if you don't go to one of those schools you're going to play against the best of the best," Jackson said. "You're going to have the best players on your team and have the best coaching staff that can win championships.
"Texas A&M had that great season and they have a lot of people coming back especially their quarterback, Johnny Manziel. I like how Florida plays. They come off the ball and they've been like Oregon in the SEC."
So far, Jackson has received those two offers along with Arizona State, Boise State, Colorado, Miami, Nebraska, Northwestern, SMU, UCLA, Utah, Washington and Washington State.
Landing the two SEC offers is big and it's something Jackson won't soon forget.
"The Texas A&M coach came to my school and they talked to coach (Scott) Altenberg," Jackson said. "He said they liked me a lot and that I had the offer. I was randomly going to class and coach stopped me and told me I was offered.
"I was talking to Florida on the phone and we were talking about track and stuff, it was Brian White, and then he talked about how they had a great track team and he told me I had that offer. I was just excited to hear about that one."
Jackson said both Texas A&M and Florida told him they like him for both positions - cornerback and wide receiver - and it would be determined later where he'd fit best.
The five-star prospect said USC and Oregon have also been involved recently.
