USC has had to make up a lot of ground with DE Jarrett Jackson Palm Beach Gardens, FL. By the time the Gamecocks offered in mid-October, Jackson already was committed to Louisville. But make up ground they have to the point where he will make an official visit this weekend for his first up close look at the program.
“They are just excited for me to get up on a visit and check out everything,” Jackson said. “I’ve been talking to Coach (Lance) Thompson. He’s just really excited and thinks I can make a big impact and get them to the next level.”
Jackson is holding with his commitment to the Cardinals at this point and the Gamecocks, nor any others, have yet to get him all twisted over his decision.
“Everything is pretty normal,” he said. “I’m not sure where they (Gamecocks) fit in. I still feel good towards Louisville.”
Jackson said his dad will join him on his visit and with his season over they will arrive Friday.
“I want to see the facilities, the team, the coaching staff, the campus and check out the academics. I plan to study communications or business.”
Jackson will take an official visit to Pitt December 1st and one to Louisville December 8th.
