Florida leads still for Jackson

7 on 7 tournaments are great ways to see the top defensive backs and receivers go up against each other.

For a player like Immokalee (Fla.) High cornerback JC Jackson who plays both receiver and cornerback, it’s a good way for him to show off both of his talents.

“We did ok yesterday but we can do a lot better,” Jackson said of his team performance. “I’ve been playing more cornerback than receiver out here but playing some receiver too.”

The 5-foot-10, 175-pound Jackson talks mainly with cornerbacks coach Travaris Robinson who has a clear message for him.

“They don’t really tell me anything new lately,” Jackson said. “They just want to make sure I still want to be a Gator.”

Jackson has been committed to Florida State since March of 2012 but he says that could change soon.

“I don’t know when I’m going to make a decision but soon,” Jackson said. “Probably in May but I don’t know yet but Florida is still my leader.”

For the 2014 prospect, he recently stopped by Florida for the Gator’s spring game, shortly after just visiting Gainesville in February.

“It was a nice visit overall,” Jackson said. “I’m probably going to come back up to Florida for a game this fall and I plan to visit Florida this summer sometime but I’m not sure when.”

For Jackson, he plans to take visits this summer but he has several teams still recruiting hard despite his commitment.

“I’m going to take visits this summer but I don’t know who to yet,” Jackson said. “Maybe just Florida but I don’t know. Georgia, Florida State, Florida and pretty much every other team are recruiting me hard right now.”
