One of the top uncommitted linebackers in the country released his list of finalists on Sunday, and three SEC programs made the cut.
Dontavious Jackson, a 4-star from Houston, Texas (Alief Elsik) included LSU, Florida and Alabama among his top seven schools. Michigan, UCLA, Florida State and Texas — the presumed favorite — round out the list.
The 6-foot-2, 239-pound senior has reported 57 offers, but 247Sports.com’s Crystal Ball predictions give Texas 77 percent of the projections to land Jackson. If it’s any indication, Jackson has already taken official visits to UCLA (Oct. 2) and FSU (Oct. 10), and he’s scheduled to visit Michigan later in the month (Nov. 28). His remaining two official visits, though, have yet to be determined.
Jackson is rated as the No. 5 inside linebacker in the country.
