5-Star Adoree Jackson Announces His Final Six Via Twitter

Alex SimsCorrespondent IIIJanuary 4, 2014


Adoree Jackson was one of several players to shine at the Under Armour All-America Game earlier this week, but he wasn't among the group of players to announce his commitment in St. Petersberg.

However, just a few days later, the Gardena, Calif., native took the next step toward making that announcement. The 5-star cornerback took to Twitter Saturday to release his final six schools: Florida, LSU, Oklahoma, Tennessee, UCLA and USC.

The most notable absence from that list is Florida State. Jackson took an official visit to Tallahassee in November.

He has taken numerous visits and attended a camp at USC and has been a perceived Southern Cal lean. Of 50 forecasters in the 247Sports crystal ball, 82 percent see Jackson headed to the Trojans.

A product of Junipero Serra, several of Jackson's teammates are already committed.

Dwight Williams, a 4-star linebacker, pledged to UCLA Saturday during the Army All-American Bowl during the game's broadcast on NBC. He'll join 3-star receiver Jordan Lasley in Westwood. Matt Dickerson, a 4-star defensive end, is headed to Notre Dame, while safety Glen Ihenacho is committed to Oregon.

However, Jackson appears most likely to join 3-star linebacker Olajuwon Tucker and 3-star dual-threat quarterback Jalen Green at USC.

A multi-sport star who also excels on the track, Jackson has had his pick of programs and will have a tough decision going forward.

He is the No. 2 cornerback nationally and the No. 1 player from California. The No. 7 overall player in the nation, Jackson is the second-highest rated uncommitted prospect behind fellow corner Marlon Humphrey

An outstanding athlete with incredible leaping ability, Jackson gave his future team a taste of what he'll bring to campus at the Under Armour Game. He rose up in the back of the end zone and pulled in a pass attempt by Michigan commit Wilton Speight, touching both feet down to complete the acrobatic pick.

Whichever program ends up with Jackson, it will be adding an elite playmaker on the outside.
