When a young student-athlete constantly gets compared to the likes of LaVar Arrington and Jevon Kearse you better believe that he is one hot commodity.
Defensive end Lawrence Jackson (6-5 ½, 240, 4.82) from Inglewood, Calif., is hearing his name mentioned as a young Arrington and Kearse.
Jackson is already setting up a trip to Tennessee on November 9th for the Miami game. He already has over 20 offers including every one from the Pac10 except Stanford. Miami, Colorado, and LSU have also offered Jackson a scholie.
Jackson is also interested in BYU, Penn State and Northwestern but there are no offers from these three schools.
“I am wide open,” Jackson said regarding his favorite college. We must remember when young student athlete has as many offers as and options as Jackson, the top schools have a tendency to change at any time.
Jackson has a lot of versatility; he could end up putting his hand down or play standing up on the next level.
Jackson is the type of player you have to plan your offense around. He is that disruptive as a defender. Jackson is a one-man wrecking crew.
What is Jackson looking for in a school?
“I’m looking for a great education, a good football program and a school where I can have an outstanding college experience at,” Jackson said. “I’m looking at everybody right now and distance will not be a factor.”
The amazing thing about Jackson is he is only a neophyte to the game of football. He has only been playing since his freshman year.
Jackson received over 30 phone calls since September 1st. Some of the schools include Tennessee, Miami, UCLA, USC, Washington, Michigan State and a lot more.
Jackson is one of many of the Golden State’s best football players scheduled to be at the UCLA/CSU game.
