Iowa picked up its 13th known verbal commitment on Thursday when Texas defensive back Joshua Jackson…
Jackson Close To Decision
Cornerback Joshua Jackson is beginning to wind his recruitment down. The Texas standout has four scholarship offers to his credit and will look to show that the college attention is warranted with his performance in the fall. One of the scholarship offers that Jackson has earned has come from Iowa. The Hawkeyes were able to host Jackson on a visit two weeks ago. "I really like Iowa right now," Jackson said. "They really stand out to me. It was a great trip and I liked it a lot. It was cool to be able to see everything with my own eyes. It was something I really enjoyed." "The campus was beautiful," he continued. I liked the facilities and was able to notice that it was a nice urban city. I expected it to be kind of flat and didn't have a whole lot of expectations going in but it impressed me. There was a lot to like about it." The Lake Dallas prospect explained what he was able to do and some of the sights he was able to see while on the unofficial visit checking out the Hawkeyes. "I was able to meet the players which is something I know I wanted to do," Jackson told Scout. "I got to see and meet the coaches. Seeing the field and stadium was a big rush. I always hear good things about the stadiums in the Big Ten and they were all right. It was all a lot better than I imagined it being." Jackson was able to check out an Iowa practice as well. "I loved watching them get after it in practice," he noted. "They all get after it up there. I watched the coaches and how they taught and operated with my position group. It was a cool thing to see so I know what it would be like playing for them each and every day." The Texas defensive back feels like he's ready to make a decision and it could come at any moment. "I want to make a decision before the season so I'll have my choice made by August 30," Jackson pointed out. "Mainly, the next few weeks I'll be thinking about which school I will commit to. If I have to take another visit I will but the next week or two I'll just be thinking about where I should go to college."
