"I have offers from Louisiana tech, USM, UAB, Memphis, and Jackson State," said Jackson. "Out of the schools that have offered, I like Louisiana Tech and probably Southern Miss."
So what stands out about Louisiana Tech? "I'm hearing from Louisiana Tech the most," explained Jackson. "Coach Spangler visited my school. I call Coach Eggen quite a bit."
Some of the schools that have offered Jackson are a little closer to Jackson's home in Piedmont, AL. "Distance isn't a factor," offered the 6'1" 300 pound tackle. "My mom wants me to get away from home a little so I can experience college life and not come home too much."
Piedmont gets an early test this season. They open with a rival from just 20 minutes up the road in Cherokee. "They are 4A and we both won State Championships," added Jackson. "They're a big rival and they have a really good center." Sounds like a great game and a great way for Mickey Jackson to start the season in a big way.
