Vincent Jackson, Class of 2014, has racked up the offers and his total is now at 28. The Tampa linebacker is taking the process in stride.
Jackson led his Jesuit squad to an 11-2 record and all the way to the Region Finals in the Florida State playoffs. Jackson amassed 62 tackles and 8 sacks last season. At 6-2 and 235 pounds, Jackson is a very versatile player for his Jesuit team. On passing situations, Jackson is able to put his hand on the ground and wreak havoc off the edge. While on first and second down, he can play the Sam spot and help stuff the run game. Jackson has the ability to pick any college in the country and it is easy to see why.
