Jackson currently attends Osceola High School in Kissimmee, Florida. He holds 28 D1 offers after recently picking up offers from Alabama, Georgia and Auburn. Alabama’s cornerbacks’ coach Travaris Robinson informed Jackson of his offer from the Tide.
“I was very excited because Alabama is one of the top teams in college football,” Jackson told Touchdown Alabama. “It is very exciting to get an offer from them. They produce a lot of NFL players, and they have a great football program. I was shocked to get the offer because I grew up watching them. It is a blessing.”
The Florida product went on to give his thoughts on Nick Saban.
“I feel like he is one of the best coaches to ever coach,” said Jackson. “He has won a lot of National Championships, so I know he is a very good coach. I think he is a coach who looks out for you. Overall, I just think he is one of the greatest coaches of all time.”
Alabama’s running back coach Robert Gillespie watched Jackson at Osceola practice before Alabama offered him.
“Coach G came to my school practice, and he recorded my drills from start to finish,” Jackson said. “Coach said he like my length, my ball skills and that I am physical at the line of scrimmage. He also likes that I have smooth hips.”
At 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds, Jackson has a lengthy frame. Osceola used him on both sides of the football during the 2021 football season.
