Big spring coming

Big spring coming

Kalif Jackson has half a dozen scholarship offers, but he is far from done. He will add plenty more in the coming months...

The wide receiver position was loaded in Orlando, Fla. Saturday at the Nike Football Training Camp.

A definite top 10 performer, possibly top five was Kalif Jackson.

The 6-foot-4, 197 pound junior out of Neptune Beach (Fla.) Fletcher had a great day and he has a lot of potential.

He has been offered by Cincinnati, Duke, FAU, Georgia Tech, Missouri, and Wake Forest.

Jackson showed very strong hands, he adjusted to the ball well, and he showed a lot of aggression towards the end of the day. He needs to utilize his size a little more, consistently high-point the ball better, and improve his quickness out of the breaks.

He takes long strides and he covers a lot of ground in a hurry. Speed is not going to be a real strength of his, but he can get behind defenders. Jackson is a real weapon in the red zone, he showed that he can catch the ball in traffic, and he is only going to get better.

Many schools have their eye on him as we inch closer to the spring evaluation period starting April 15.

"So many schools want to see me this spring," said Jackson. "I cannot name them all, but I know Florida is coming to see me, Penn State says they will be down, and many more too. I am looking forward to it."

Jackson does not have any favorites at this time, but he knows what his decision will be based around.

"I am an academics first guy. I care most about academics, so that is what I am looking for first in a school. Football will come after academics for me." Recommended Stories
