Jackson could break out soon

All signs point to Adoree' Jackson being a special prospect in the 2014 class because of his versatility, athleticism and skill and the Gardena (Calif.) Serra standout's recruitment has already been busy.
Offers are in from Colorado, Nebraska, Northwestern, SMU, UCLA, Utah, Washington and Washington State but the 5-foot-10, 172-pound prospect said things on the recruiting front have been relatively slow this season and no new offers have come in.
That might be because the floodgates are just waiting to be opened.
It's expected that Jackson will be one of the most highly-recruited prospects in California next recruiting cycle.
"I still have eight offers," Jackson said. "There really isn't much new. I don't know anything new. My coaches have talked to some schools but I don't know which ones really.
"I haven't talked to many schools. I'm not really focused on that. My focus turns a little bit after the season but I have other sports to play as well so I don't really focus on it as much as other people."
Jackson, who next turns to basketball and then track where he is also a star, plays numerous roles for Gardena Serra - and plays them all well.
The 2014 standout is mainly a lockdown cornerback but he also plays wide receiver, he's a return specialist and he's been handling Serra's punting as well.
Wherever coach Scott Altenberg puts Jackson, he succeeds.
Altenberg said Jackson is more in the mold of former Serra standout Marqise Lee, an athletic go-getter who is hard to stop, rather than George Farmer or Robert Woods, who were more smooth and athletic and dominated that way.
"I play on offense a lot," Jackson said. "I've been playing a lot all over the place the last couple games. I'm just filling in a role and doing what I have to do all over the field.
"I always want to make something happen. I had a couple catches for my team and I had a touchdown as well so it's been nice."
