CamRon Jackson is quickly trimming his list of offers and is preparing to give a commitment in the near future.
The Class of 2020 4-star defensive lineman unveiled a top 3 of LSU, Alabama and Mississippi on Wednesday. He is planning to commit to one of those three SEC West schools before his junior season at Haynesville (La.) High School.
The 6-foot-4, 275-pound lineman picked up his offer from LSU in April after visiting for the team’s spring game. Jackson was joined on the trip by his cousin, 2019 LSU verbal Joseph Evans.
Coach Ed Orgeron fired off a “Hold That Tiger” tweet soon after Jackson reported his offer.
“It’s been a dream school since I was young. This feels so good,” Jackson told SEC Country following the offer. “Coach O talked to me and asked me, ‘Did I want to be a Tiger?’
“Well, it’s my hometown [team] and it’s an LSU offer,” Jackson added in May. “It felt great when I got it … He [Orgeron] was hyped. He was fired up. He said, ‘We got ourselves a big one!’ He was fired up when he offered.”
Alabama was Jackson’s first offer, while Mississippi State recently hosted the top-200 Class of 2020 prospect for camp.
Jackson previously has hinted that the Tide and the Tigers are both high on his list, and has known for some time that he wants to shut down his recruitment early in the process.
“I have really been leaning toward ‘Bama, but I like LSU,” Jackson said. “All of them are good schools. They’re good academically and football-wise.”
