4-Star WR J.C. Jackson Decommits from Florida State Seminoles

Florida State has snagged a lot of recruiting attention over the past several weeks. Well, here's some more. Only this time, Seminoles fans would wish it wasn't the case.

Wide receiver J.C. Jackson has decommitted from the school, according to Corey Dowlar of ESPN (paid link). Per the report, a coach Dowlar spoke with said, "It's over for FSU."

Considered a 4-star receiver by 247Sports composite rankings, Jackson is a 5'10" speedy offensive player and was the third receiver in the Seminoles' 2014 class. However, this move has been in the works for a while now, as Derek Tyson of ESPN tweeted back in February that this was a likely scenario.

Jackson, who is from Immokalee, Florida, has been torn between all three major Florida programs. He visited with the Gators on Junior Day and, according to Luke Stampini at 247Sports, hopes to learn more about the Gators in the near future. 

“I told them I want to keep my options,” Jackson said. “I’m supposed to go to Florida this weekend. I’m just going for an unofficial, I’m taking my parents.”

The report also indicates that Miami has entered the mix as a possible landing spot.

“I went there yesterday,” Jackson said of the Hurricanes. “It was pretty good, they told me a lot of things. It was nicer than I thought, it was pretty big.”

Jackson also has offers from schools such as Clemson, Ohio State and Tennessee, among others, but will likely remain in-state once he makes his official decision. At this point, it wouldn't be surprising even to see Jackson back in Tallahassee when everything is all said and done.

Even with this decommitment, Florida State has caught fire in the 2014 recruiting class, landing 10 popular names, including 5-star linebacker Kain Daub and 4-star wide receiver Markell Pack.
