Jackson taking another visit

Alex Jackson said his trip to Iowa State was different than what he's used to in Culver City, Calif., but the standout wide receiver added he could get used to it and that the Cyclones are definitely still on his list.
"It was really good," Jackson said. "I got to go to the game, see the facilities, meet all the coaches, meet some of the players and I got to go around and see the city and the campus so I basically got to see the whole area and the whole program.
"They're still a possibility. It's different but it's not something I couldn't get used to or something I didn't like. Everything out there was a lot slower. It wasn't like the big-city feel."
Jackson, a 5-foot-10, 175-pound wide receiver, said the Iowa State coaches weren't pushing for a commitment last weekend but made it clear they're only going to take a select few wide receivers in the class and spots were filling up quickly.
Still, Jackson wants to take a little more time before making his decision so he decided to hold off on making a pledge.
"They weren't really pushing a commitment but they let me know they were only planning on taking two receivers this year so they were getting a lot of recruits who were committing already so if there was a decision to make I should go," Jackson said.
"They weren't pressing me to commit right there."
This weekend Jackson is taking an unofficial visit to his other favorite - San Diego State - and it could be an important trip in his decision-making process. The Aztecs and Cyclones have emerged as his top teams.
"Depending on how that works out I'll see what I do from there," Jackson said. "I want to get around the coaches some more and I want to see what their game experience is like. I haven't seen the campus there either."
In total, Jackson lists offers from Arizona State, Colorado, Colorado State, Iowa State, Kansas State, Oregon State, San Diego State, Vanderbilt and Washington State.
