Adoree' Jackson was one of the many top prospects at the USC-Oregon game Saturday night and he had a unique experience talking to some coaches and cornerback Nickell Robey.
The 2014 cornerback from Gardena (Calif.) Serra has eight offers but the Trojans are not one of them. That might soon change because Jackson said the coaches had some positive things to say during his unofficial visit.
"I talked to the coaches and we talked about defense mainly," Jackson said. "Then we talked about me playing offense but we were really focusing on defense and schemes. I talked to Nickell Robey and playing gaps. If one person gets out of their gap then bad things could happen. We were just talking some football.

"They haven't really talked about (an offer) much but the coaches said it could be coming soon. I just try to ball out for my team and do everything I can to win the game. I don't really worry about it like that. I just stay focused on my team and everything will take care of itself."
So far, Jackson has received offers from Colorado, Nebraska, Northwestern, SMU, UCLA, Utah, Washington and Washington State but really has not concerned himself too much on the recruiting process.
He did say, however, an offer from USC would be something to seriously consider later on.
"It would be a big offer," Jackson said. "They don't have a lot of scholarships to give out so if they give one out then it must mean you're one of the better players in the class and that means it's a big offer."
Jackson has been to the Coliseum before and he said it was a raucous crowd at the USC-Oregon game especially early on. That was something that appealed to the Gardena Serra standout since USC was coming off a loss to Arizona.
The 2014 star was also impressed by Oregon's furious and efficient offense.
"It was really loud in the beginning and it was great to see all the SC fans there especially since they were trying to bounce back after Arizona," Jackson said. "It was nice to see that.
"I wasn't really shocked (by Oregon). I knew they were quick but to see them live and to see how quick they were and how they moved the ball it was just a nice atmosphere to see a game like that."
