Columbus (Ohio) Brookhaven offensive lineman Mark Jackson is the top center prospect in the Buckeye state. The 6-foot-6 and 300 pound Jackson was an all-city and all-district selection in helping Brookhaven to 15 straight victories including a state championship during his junior season.
Jackson, who is drawing plenty of attention from college recruiters, is in the middle of a busy spring.
"I've been to Michigan State, Indiana, Illinois, and Akron," Jackson said. "Indiana was to tour the campus. Michigan State and Illinois were for junior days.
"I'm going to USC this weekend. I'm going to tour the campus and go to the spring game. I'm going to the NIKE Camp too while I'm out there.
"And I might go to Maryland's spring game.
"And I'm looking at Miami of Florida and Oklahoma. And I'm still looking at Florida State, Ohio State, Wisconsin, and Michigan.
"Akron, Indiana, and Illinois have offered me. And Minnesota offered too.
"My top two are Miami and Oklahoma."
