Miami offers Arizona tight end

It has been a fun recruiting week for Blake Jackson and things got even more exciting Thursday afternoon when Miami offered the Scottsdale (Ariz.) Scottsdale C.C. tight end.
It's another big offer for the 6-foot-4, 235-pound prospect who said he's highly interested in the Hurricanes especially because of their success at his position.
"It was definitely a school I always loved growing up so it's definitely big news," Jackson said. "I have to look more into it. It's a new offer so I have to look a lot more into the school but it's obviously something I'm strongly considering.
"It's crazy how much history that place has. It's definitely a big deal to me to be able to look at guys who went there and were successful in the NFL.
"That's something I'm looking to do. That has a big impact on my decision but I'm going to sit back and pick the school that fits me the best."
Texas Tech offered earlier this week and Arkansas, Pittsburgh and Toledo are also on the list for Jackson, who said North Carolina and Georgia could be the next two programs to offer. Things are happening fast for Jackson and that's just the way he likes it.
"This has been really new," Jackson said. "It's kind of been like that this week. It's been a crazy week for me. A lot of schools are coming out of nowhere but that's why I'm taking my time and considering everything so I can make the right decision."
With so much going on in his recruitment, Jackson said he's not rushing a commitment and plans to take his time with everything.
No visits are scheduled yet since the Scottsdale recruit is focused on his academics and picking up more offers but Jackson could hit the road later on.
"Right now I'm just sitting back and waiting to see what happens," Jackson said. "I'm really trying to focus on this semester and spring ball.
"I already have a lot going on so I don't have that much time to put myself out there. Of course, I have another season at Scottsdale and I know more offers are going to come so I'm just trying to stay focused really."
