Kansas TE has choices of schools

Wichita (Kan.) Heights tight end Xzavie Jackson moved to Kansas from California this past summer and the schools have followed him all the way.
"Xzavie is getting lots of attention," Heights coach Rick Wheeler said. "He is being recruited by Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, Missouri, Nebraska, Michigan State, Southern California and a few others too. Despite all of the schools, he is keeping himself wide open at this early point."
Wheeler said a lot of schools are waiting for the qualifying score on the standardized test to come through before they follow through with scholarship offers.
"He took his test a while back and the results are due back any day," Wheeler said. "He's going to be close for sure if he didn't get it. He may well have gotten it. Then the schools will be all over him."
Jackson played both ways for Heights this year after getting his feet wet in the system.
At 6-foot-4, 230-pounds Jackson was able to help Heights at tight end and at defensive end. He had 19 catches for 280 yards and three touchdowns. When he did get into the action on defense he recorded 39 tackles.
"Kansas, Oklahoma State, Kansas and Missouri are recruiting him as a tight end," Wheeler said. "Kansas State, Michigan State and USC are looking at him for defensive end."
Jackson is still waiting his first scholarship offer.
