Dontavious Jackson, the nation’s No. 5 inside linebacker, will take official visits to Alabama, Florida and Michigan, according to Gerry Hamilton of ESPN.
Jackson, a 4-star linebacker from Houston, will visit Florida on Jan. 15 and Alabama on Jan. 22. His trip to Michigan is scheduled for Nov. 28.
According to his 247Sports.com Crystal Ball, 77 percent of recruiting analysts believe he will commit to Texas. He has already taken official visits to UCLA and Florida State, so the perceived favorite to land him will not host him for an official visit.
The 6-foot-2, 239-pounder is rated as the state of Texas’ No. 17 overall prospect.
