"Now, Miami is the school I have a lot of love for and I really like what they have to offer down there.
"Georgia just started recruiting me a little bit ore and they started showing me they like me still, so I might give them a visit too, but I know for sure that Miami and Central Florida will be two of my visits."
In addition to Jackson's offers from those three schools, he also sports offers from the likes of Alabama, Arkansas, Baylor, Houston, Kansas State, Louisiana Tech, Missouri, Oklahoma State, South Florida, Tennessee, Texas Tech and UNLV and he's hearing from schools like Auburn, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Southern Miss and SMU among others.
On the field this season so far, Jackson has been bottled up with offenses constantly double-teaming him, but he's still managed to post 12 tackles, 1/2 a sack and three tackles for loss.
"When they double you, you just have to work that much harder," Jackson said. "You have to make plays when you have the chance and that's what I've tried to do."
Last year, as a true freshman, Jackson played both defensive end positions for one of the top JUCO programs in the country and started the first five games – notching nine sacks and 40 tackles – before a slight shoulder separation caused him to miss a game.
"It basically popped out and then popped right back in," Jackson said about his right shoulder injury back in April. "I just missed a game and then had the doctors check it out and they said there was no damage or ligament tears.
"After that, I wasn't starting anymore, but I played a lot and this year I plan on starting every game and being 'the guy' outside."
Jackson was named a JC Gridwire First Team Pre-Season All-American and is on pace to graduate in December and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
