Columbus (Ohio) Brookhaven offensive lineman Mark Jackson says his scholarship offer total has risen to close a dozen, and included in the list are a number of Big Ten schools. But Jackson is in no hurry to make a decision.
"I only had a chance to make it to one camp this summer, Cincinnati," Jackson said. "But I'll probably visit Michigan and Minnesota in August. I'm supposed to make an official visit to Minnesota August 12.
"I have around 10 or 12 scholarship offers. Michigan, Michigan State, Illinois, Indiana, those are some of them.
"I'm mostly looking at the Big Ten. Minnesota, Michigan, and Ohio State, those are the main three.
"I'll probably wait till after the season to decide. I'll take my official visits. I'll take all five.
"I want to go to some games too. I'll go to the Ohio State-Texas game for sure. And maybe Minnesota-Michigan."
The 6-foot-6 and 300 pound Jackson is the No. 17 prospect in the state of Ohio in the Rivals.com player rankings.
