Tampa LB Jackson close to cutting list

Tampa LB Jackson close to cutting list

Peter Ariz
Tampa Jesuit LB Vincent Jackson has been recruited by top programs for a few years now and is close to settling in on a top 5. After tweeting earlier today that he had his 5 in mind, he says he isn't ready to release those to the public just yet.

"That's coming later in the summer because I'm not 100% sure on it yet."

What are the chances Miami makes the cut?

"Very strong. That's all I'll really say on that (laughs).

The 6'3", 240-lb LB was at Miami earlier this year for a junior day, but doesn't have plans to camp.

"It kind of intersects with stuff I'm doing at school with community service and team stuff. My coach prefers for us to do team stuff over individual camps."

Mark D'Onofrio has taken a lead role in Jackson's recruitment.

"Coach D (D'Onofrio) was the one who came by last to see me. He might be my main recruiter now. He's a nice guy, Italian guy, talks fast. He's really what the whole Miami coaching staff is about."

Miami recently offered one of Jackson's very close friends, Isaiah Wynn, who is one of the top guards in the nation.

"We're looking to really play at the same school, so having the ones in common helps a lot. Miami is one of my all-time favorites, so having them offer him kinda sparks it up."

What else does Jackson have planned for the summer?

"I want to FSU visit sometime because I have family there and I haven't visited there."

Jackson is optimistic for his team heading into next season.

"The team came a long way from what I already thought was going to be a very good team. Everyone worked their butt off and we're getting better now in the summer with some transfers and freshmen who will play early. It's shaping up pretty good to be honest."

Would love to land Jackson, but he pretty much tell each fan base what they wanna hear.

Kid is a monster but I don't feel too good about him
 
This is a kid you get excited about if you see his name confirmed on signing day but no matter if he commits or whatever, don't get too excited.
 
Meh, you take him if he wants in, he is a take just based on our need for numbers, but I'm gonna lose sleep over it.
 
I felt like this ship sailed a few months ago. Maybe we get back into though, but I'm not holding my breathe.

He made no mention at the beautiful heads up hair that our staff is sporting. Golden, Coley, Duh, and Carrol should look into getting sponsored by Pantene Pro-V

The only thing stopping me (THE ONLY FUKING THING) from coaching at Miami is my hairline.
 
Jacksons aunt is my wife's best girlfriend and was matron of honor in my wedding. I know his dad but not him. I'll find out the real deal of where his head is at re Miami.
