Safety now has how many offers

Duncanville, Texas safety Erick Jackson, who is 6-foot-2 and 170 pounds, now has scholarship offers from seven different colleges.
He has offers from Oklahoma State, Toledo, Kansas State, Boston College, West Virginia, Houston, and Southern Methodist.
He is not able to pinpoint one college as the favorite right now, but one team is recruiting him the hardest.
"I don't know who it (favorite) would be other than between the seven offers that I presently have," he said. "Kansas State is recruiting the hardest."
Jackson said that coaches from the above seven schools called him during May and also, coaches from Nebraska, Illinois, Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, Utah, Arkansas and Duke called.
He is looking into Texas, Texas A & M, and Oklahoma as possible summer camp visits.
"I will probably make my decision during the season," he said about when he might make a decision. "Our first game is August 30th."
He knows what he is looking for from a college of his choice.
"I will look at the graduation rate and the curriculum offered by the school," he said. "As for the surroundings, I will look at the layout of the campus, because I don't want some place that's too hard to get around. I want to be able to get from point A to point B."
He had 71 tackles, two caused fumbles and an interception as a junior. He made second-team all-district last year.
"I read my key well, and I know where the ball is going," he said about what he thought were his strong points. "I have good breaking speed and tackling ability. I do get in trouble for leaving my feet to try and make a desperate diving tackle."
"My sports goal for next season would be a state championship," he said about future goals, "and to become a better player to lead my team to the state championship."
Final Note on one team that is not in contact with him: "If I could commit anywhere I wanted, it would be to Florida State, because they need secondary help, and I'd get to play very quickly."
