Three-star Puckett (Miss.) defensive back Terrell Jackson says he’s back at two schools as he tries to make his decision this week.
“I was thinking a little bit about (Mississippi) State, but it’s going to be either Ole Miss or Southern (Miss),” he said. “Those are the final two.
“I don’t have a favorite, though. They’re completely neck-and-neck right now.”
Jackson (5-11, 185, 4.4) said his final decision will come down to “where I feel most at home.”
“I’m just going to spend some time talking to the coaches, my mom, and praying about it this week,” he said. “I hope to come up with a decision by the end of the week.”
The pros in favor of the Rebels include: “The players and the people at the school. The closeness of the team and the way the coaches communicate with the players. I like the atmosphere there, too, and the fact that they’re in the SEC.”
The pros in favor of the Golden Eagles include: “The players and coaches, kind of the same as Ole Miss in that aspect. But I like Hattiesburg. It’s a good town. They have a solid program and a good defensive system. They also have some new facilities coming which should be nice.”
As a senior, Jackson played the role of Puckett’s primary ballcarrier, rushing for 1,375 yards and 19 touchdowns. He had one interception on defense. Rated the No. 33 corner in the nation by Rivals.com, he had six interceptions as a junior.
