Alabama next for Jackson

Eddie Jackson

Eddie Jackson visited FSU this past weekend and this weekend he will be in Tuscaloosa. Jackson is a speedy wide receiver/cornerback that really blew up this fall.

Things are good for Eddie Jackson (Lauderdale Lakes, Fla./Boyd Anderson). He went from a prospect hoping for some offers to now being courted by the national champs and several big time BCS schools. He made an official visit to one of those programs this past weekend.

"I didn't go up to FSU with him but he said everything was really nice," said Eddie Jackson, Sr. "I know he really liked it up there. He liked the players a lot, the environment and thought the new coaches were all good coaches. I believe he just had an overall very good visit."

Jackson will visit Alabama (1-18) next followed by LSU (1-25) and then Arkansas (2-1). According to his father FSU and Arkansas have offered Jackson as a wide receiver, Alabama as a cornerback and LSU as an athlete.

"It's an exciting time for Eddie and all of us," his father said. "But we are nervous at the same time. But overall everything has been pretty cool.

"As far as his position he likes them both. For me, it's kind of hard to say what position he's better at because he's good on both sides of the ball. I would probably lean a little more towards defense." Recommended Stories
