Adoree’ Jackson: 2014 Cornerback Up In The Air

Adoree' Jackson

Kirby Lee – USA TODAY Sports

Most heavily recruited high school football players heading into their senior year have narrowed their choices down to maybe five or six schools. Adoree’ Jackson, however, is no ordinary high school football player. Jackson is the No. 2 cornerback in the country by ESPN and Rivals. The only corner they have listed better than him is Michiganbound Jabrill Peppers. Being from Belleville, Illinois, but living in Gardena, California, many think they can pry Jackson from the region in which he attends high school to come to their school.

Jackson attends Junipero Serra High School in Gardena. The Serra Cavaliers are coming off of a season in which they went 14-2, including a CIF Western Division II State Championship. Serra is one of the top teams in the state and is bringing back almost all of their talent heading to major colleges. Among then are linebacker Dwight WilliamsBoise State bound quarterback Jalen Greene, and UCLA bound wide receiver Jordan Lasley. They hope to defend their State championship and will attempt to go undefeated with most of their key players returning.

Jackson’s wide list of schools include FloridaFlorida StateIllinoisLSU, Michigan, Notre DameOklahoma StateTennessee, UCLA and USC. Jackson has not alluded to any team as the front runner, but being from Illinois, that could be a key connection that plays a role in where he chooses. There has also been speculation about him teaming up with Jabrill Peppers and forming the nation’s most deadly coverage duo. It will be very interesting to see who he chooses when all is said and done.

Watch HS Hoops Coach Headbutt Referee

There is absolutely no excuse for this to happen ever. During an argument about a call, Neshaminy (Pa.) high school basketball coach Jerry Devine decided it would be a good idea to headbutt the referee to prove his point. Devine was then ejected from the gym and could now face criminal charges for his actions as well as losing his teaching and coaching job.
