Adoree' Jackson is an early five-star prospect by Rivals.com and UCLA is coming hard after the Gardena (Calif.) Serra cornerback.
"It's nice because they're local, they're up-and-coming and you can see they're making a lot of changes and winning," Jackson said. "That's the top thing everybody is looking at right now. They're talking to me the most out of every school recruiting me right now.
"It really is a big thing. As you can see, even though they're winning they take the time out to talk to me. I appreciate that a lot."

A lot of schools are talking to Jackson, who already has offers from Arizona State, Colorado, Nebraska, Northwestern, SMU, UCLA, Utah, Washington and Washington State.
USC is showing lots of interest and apparently told the Gardena Serra standout that an offer could be on the way soon.
Others from across the country have also reached out but because of a hectic football schedule, then basketball season and then track, recruiting is not a major focus for the 2014 standout yet.
Jackson, a 5-foot-10, 172-pound cornerback who also shines on offense and special teams, was supposed to make it to the USC-UCLA game last weekend but because of Serra's practice could not make it.
He still got a chance to watch the whole game on television and was definitely impressed with the Bruins. Like many others, Jackson has noticed a lot of changes from scheme to the coaching staff and he likes how things are going.
"It was just like the Texas A&M-Alabama game," Jackson said. "UCLA was the underdog and USC probably thought they had it but UCLA came out early, came out strong and scored all those touchdowns. They just wanted it more.
"I can see a lot of changes. In the way they play, you can see they're more focused and the coaching staff, you can tell there is a different kind of game plan and they're really going after it this year."
