GARDENA, Calif. - Adoree' Jackson already has lots of offers and is hearing from many other colleges but first comes his junior season.
That is the main focus for the 2014 cornerback from Gardena Serra who played well in his team's 20-12 victory against Long Beach Poly on Friday night.
Jackson, a 5-foot-10, 172-pound speedster, was used mainly on defense and special teams and as the season goes along will be worked in at receiver as well.
"It feels good having those wins (against Poly and Sherman Oaks Notre Dame) because those are two good teams and everybody is betting against us and saying it's a rebuilding year," Jackson said.
"It's a good feeling, we're off to a good start and we have our swagger. We need to keep rolling on."
The 2014 standout has been offered by Colorado, Nebraska, Northwestern, SMU, UCLA, Utah, Washington and Washington State so far.
USC and some SEC teams are also keeping close tabs on Jackson, who said he's going to seriously start the recruiting process after this season.
"I think I'm going to start doing it this off-season," Jackson said.
"Our team needs this and we need to stay focused on one goal and that's to go back to the state championship. When we stay focused and stay humble like we need to then everything else will fall into place. I'm not really worried about it because I know it will come along."
Jackson said he planned to see the USC-Hawaii game Saturday but was unsure if he could make it because of Serra's practice. Some trips to USC and UCLA could happen this season.
"I'm just talking to everybody and nothing is that big," Jackson said of new offers. "They want to see what's happening with me and I want to see what's happening with them so we're keeping that communication going."
