Mansfield Safety staying busy

While the summer was a busy one for Mansfield (TX) safety Kenji Jackson, the approaching season has helped slow things down. He added that shifting his focus to his upcoming senior year has helped him relax.

When he has gotten the chance to talk with coaches, Jackson said he has tried his best to keep up with both his and their busy schedules. One coach Jackson said he has enjoyed talking to has been one that has been talking with him about more than just on the field.

Jackson said the next time he talks with Coach Steckel, as well as the other coaches recruiting him, he plans on setting up his official visits for the fall. Jackson said he is pretty sure where he will take his visits, but with Purdue recently making his offer list an even baker's dozen, he was not entirely sure just yet.

With his long list of offers, Jackson said the decision has not been easy. He added that he has seen a lot of things from all the schools that he really likes. He went on to say that what he has seen of Missouri has intrigued him for most of the summer.

Jackson said that with each passing week, he knows his decision is getting closer and closer, even if signing day is not for several months. He added that favorites have been difficult to name to this point, but once he is able to decide on favorites, it may not be too long afterwards that he is able to make his final choice.
