One of the nation’s top uncommitted recruits, Adoree’ Jackson (Gardena, Calif. Junipero Serra) has been on the radar for LSU fans even prior to his Oct. 12 official visit as the nation’s No. 7 ranked recruit according to the 247Sports composite rankings could make an impact in all three phases of the game at the collegiate level.
With Jackson keeping his recruitment rather close to the vest and not tipping his hand as far as naming any favorites, it’s been somewhat difficult to get a feel for where he’s thinking with so many schools in the mix. Today, Jackson cleared things up a bit as he released his top six schools via Twitter and LSU made the cut.

The 5-9 1/2, 182-pound Jackson is the No. 2 cornerback recruit and top recruit in California and is one of the most versatile players in the country as he could be a five-star receiver and is one of the top return men in addition to being an Olympic-caliber long jumper.
Jackson will compete in track in college which gives LSU hope of landing his commitment because of their prestigious program. USC and Florida are believed to be the teams to beat at the moment for Jackson who will announce on national signing day on Feb. 5/
It’s been a wild week on the recruiting trail as LSU landed commitments from two five-star recruits in Jamal Adams and the nation’s top recruit, Leonard Fournette. However, LSU also lost out on adding to their bounty as they saw three other finalists at the Under Armour All-American Game pick rival SEC schools.
