One of the Magnolia State’s real hidden gems is Puckett cornerback Terrell Jackson.
He’s managed to fly mostly under the radar this recruiting season, but has big-time athleticism and cover skills to offer.
Heading into the holidays, it appears that Jackson (5-11, 185, 4.4) has four schools at the top of his list.
“I’ve already visited Southern (Miss), and I have one for Ole Miss on January the 9th through 11th,” he said. “It looks like I’ll be going to (Mississippi) State on January the 16th and 17th, and Auburn sometime. But I’m not exactly sure when I’ll go there.”
He said those four schools are “all pretty even” at this point.
“I like the coaches at all four schools,” he said. “I like the facilities at Ole Miss and Auburn. I really liked Auburn when I went there for the Nike camp this summer. Ole Miss is building some great new facilities, too.”
As a senior, Jackson rushed for 1,375 yards and 19 touchdowns in helping lead Puckett to a 10-2 record. He also had one interception on defense.
He had six picks as a junior, but said “nobody really challenged me much this year.”
