Blake Jackson just returned from his visit to Oklahoma and he has one more visit, this weekend to Oklahoma State, before he makes his decision.
The Sooners definitely did lots to impress the Scottsdale (Ariz.) Scottsdale C.C. tight end and he said they'll be seriously considered as his recruitment winds down.
"It was great," Jackson said of his Oklahoma trip.
"I had a great time. They have a great tradition there, they're winning consistently every year and I had great talks with coach (Bob) Stoops and a lot of good times with everyone. They were showing me different ways that they need me.
"What really stood out to me was at a university like that there is truly a need for a tight end to come in and contribute. The need at that position was something that stood out."
Jackson, who has also visited Miami, Georgia and Arkansas, didn't want to say he had a frontrunner but Oklahoma definitely did a lot to keep him interested. The other three programs also impressed.
"I'm fresh off the visit so I don't want to jump the gun on anything but I really loved it, I loved Arkansas and I loved Georgia, too," Jackson said. "They all seem like really good fits for me and they all seem like they have a need for tight end which is why we're in this situation now.
"I really like the staffs there. Obviously they're putting guys in the right places to do good things."
The trip to Oklahoma State will be the last for Jackson, a 6-foot-4, 235-pound three-star tight end who's rated No. 18 in the junior college rankings by Rivals.com.
After he returns from his trip to Stillwater this weekend, Jackson said he could be only days away from making his commitment.
"After that visit I'll probably make my decision that next week, probably on Wednesday," Jackson said. "I won't delay too much."
