Blake Jackson is taking an unofficial visit to Arkansas this weekend and he's really excited to see what the Razorbacks have to offer and thrilled to learn more about how they want to use him in the offense.
Jackson, a 6-foot-4, 235-pound prospect from Scottsdale (Ariz.) Scottsdale C.C., said he loved how coach Bobby Petrino and his staff utilized D.J. Williams and hopes they see using him in a similar way.
"I'm very excited about the trip," Jackson said. "I can really see myself playing there just because of the offense and D.J. Williams being such a pass-receiving tight end. We'll see when I get there if it feels like home.

"It's very important that not only the offense is a good fit but that they have somebody coming back at quarterback who's experienced and can be able to distribute the ball and be winners."
Pittsburgh and Toledo have offered so far and Williams said he's mainly receiving interest from Arkansas, Purdue and Arizona State.
The junior college prospect said he's not too sure how Pittsburgh got involved so early in his recruitment but that he's thoroughly interested in taking a trip to check out the Panthers as well.
"One of my coaches at Scottsdale knows the Toledo coaches pretty well but Pittsburgh was the first offer I received," Jackson said. "I'm not really from that area. I'm from Arizona.
"I know Pittsburgh wants me to do in their offense and I know about some of the perks like they practice by the Steelers and they have a really good business program but I haven't gotten out there to experience it yet. I have a pretty good relationship with the coaches there, too."
