Oregon Receiver Diante Jackson Is the Next Best Thing...Defenses Beware

Amidst all the problems surrounding Oregon football, there appears to be some bright spots. One of those bright spots, is freshman receiver Diante Jackson.

We may not know if he's a backup or a starter, but one thing is clear. He's not to be messed with. Jackson said this:

"All I promise is when I'm out there and get the ball, there isn't going to be another receiver like me...I've got to get to the end zone. I don't care if I have to stiff arm you or run you over." 

Well rawr to you too. 

And it's the truth, and spring practices can attest. Other players have stated he's been a hassle taking down, and that he's as difficult to cover as a starter. 

Jackson was recruited during the 2008-09 season, but redshirted his freshman year. "Time and unforeseen occurrence befall us all." How true. After a preseason injury, then personal matters he had to deal with, it was decided that Jackson would take the year off football.

But now he's ready for action...and hopefully we'll be seeing a lot of Jackson in the 2010-11 season. It's apparent, in my opinion, the Ducks should make him a starter. After losing a couple for various reasons, Jackson could easily make his way into the starting slot. And he'd be a great new weapon for whoever the new quarterback will be.

Remember the name Diante Jackson college football fans...he'll be an impact player next year.
