Louisiana LB has impressive list

"My top team is Florida," said West Monroe, La., linebacker Lucas Jackson. "I just like their defense and the way they play the game."
The Gators are the only team on Jackson's list that hasn't offered. The 6-foot-1, 220-pound linebacker with 4.5-second speed in the 40-yard dash has offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Louisiana Tech and Notre Dame.
"After Florida it would be kind of between Notre Dame and Auburn," Jackson said.
"Notre Dame has a great tradition and they always put good defense on the field. Auburn plays the same style of defense that we do here, and I like that. It would be easy for me to pick up."
Jackson opens the season up again Sulpher. As a junior, Jackson had 158 tackles, 8 sacks and 4 interceptions. Jackson camped at Auburn and Louisiana Tech this summer.
