Jackson interested in SEC team

Chauntez Jackson is keeping all his options open since more schools are getting involved but the Inglewood, Calif., three-star prospect said at the B2G Elite Camp he's definitely interested in Tennessee.
The Volunteers recently offered the 6-foot-4, 235-pound recruit who could play defensive end or tight end and Jackson said they like him for offense.
"With Tennessee it's pretty good," Jackson said. "They want me to play tight end and I really like that position.
"I didn't even know until I read it on Facebook, a couple friends told me and then I heard from my coach I had an offer from Tennessee."
Jackson, rated as the No. 87 prospect in the California state rankings by Rivals.com, said he would like to take an official visit to Tennessee to check out the school and meet with the coaching staff.
It could be an important trip for Jackson, who was slowed at the B2G camp because of an ankle injury.
"I do want to get out there," Jackson said.
"It will probably be one of my first visits. I love playing tight end. It's still the feel of being on the line but then I can run out, catch the ball and then turn up the field."
Arizona is also getting seriously involved with Jackson, who said he wants to take his visits before making a decision.
San Diego State, Washington State, Utah State and some others are also involved in his recruitment as well.
"I want to take all my visits and see what everyone else has to offer," Jackson said.
