Committed to Ole Miss on Feb. 6, 2013.


Possible playing time in 2013: With the graduations of Ferbia Allen, HR Greer and Jamal Mosley, Jackson will play right away whether he likes it or not. Christian Morgan is already enrolled so he will have the upper-hand at becoming the feature Y-receiver. Just because Morgan has the head start does not mean that Jackson will have limited time. His ability as a receiver and the barren depth at the position makes him a commodity to see a lot of early snaps.

Wrap-up: Jackson reminds me a bit of a larger DJ Williams, former Razorbacks tight end and current Green Bay Packer. He has a big body, long arms and has a huge frame. Some time in the weight program will do him a lot of good as he is still a little lean for his size. A great pass catcher who will make his name in the red zone. Many believe that he will be one of the biggest sleepers in this class and the coaches think they have a star in the making.
