"Right now I have two more home visits set up with coaches and then from there I'm pretty sure I'll be ready to make my choice," Jackson said, per Jackson took official visits to all three of those schools during the season.


While currently listed at 280 pounds, Jackson definitely has the frame to add on more weight if his future team wants him to do so. Jackson is extremely athletic, and he has a lot of potential to be molded into a superstar by the right coach at the next level.

Jackson is rated as a five-star recruit by the 247Sports player rankings, where he also rates as the No. 5 offensive tackle in the nation.
