Clemson has attracted the highest level of wide receiver recruits during its run to national prominence. But Saturday a receiver currently without that high national acclaim, Ruben Jackson (5-8 135) of Belle Glade, FL was in to see the Tigers. He knows an offer from Clemson would certainly change how he’s perceived in the recruiting world.
“Clemson was amazing, one of the top visits I have been on,” Jackson said. “I love the coaching staff and coach Dabo (Swinney) can really help me become a better man. The interest level for Clemson is at a high standard for me. I also love the facility, it feels like home.”
Jackson has attracted Power 5 offers from Oregon State, Rutgers, Syracuse and Vanderbilt. He also has offers from FAU, Troy, Massachusetts, Marshall and Texas State. He said part of the questions Clemson has about him are related to academics.
“They want to see how my grades are for this semester,” Jackson said. “They want me to come back in May, but it’s a guarantee I will be offered.”
Jackson said he will return to Clemson in May. He is going back to visit Florida State this coming week.
