UGA makes late pitch to in-state LB

Three-star Atlanta (Ga.) linebacker
Jarvis Jackson has a big decision
to make by the end of the week after the home state Bulldogs jumped back into
his recruiting picture.
"I got an offer from Georgia on Tuesday when they found out about my ACT
score," he said. "I'm supposed to go to West Virginia this weekend, but Georgia
wants me to come there now. That's the place I originally wanted to go, but it's
kind of late now and West Virginia has wanted me for a long time. I'm not sure
what to do.
"One way or another, I've got to let these teams know by Friday."
Jackson (6-2, 205, 4.6) said his final decision would come down to Georgia,
West Virginia or Indiana. He visited Mississippi State this past weekend, but
dropped the Bulldogs after that trip.
"They really weren't that interested in me at this point because they've got
enough linebackers," he said. "They were trying to get me to come on another
kind of scholarship. I didn't want to do that. I think they wanted my teammate (CB Jeramie Johnson) more than me."
Jackson (6-2, 205, 4.6) is member of the
Georgia Top 50 team and the No.
32 outside linebacker in the nation. As a senior he recorded approximately 150
tackles, 12 sacks and four interceptions at Booker T. Washington HS.
