DE Jamar Jackson Profile

Jamar Jackson, a 6-4, 225 pound defensive end prospect out the Richmond, Va. area has already taken four official visits this fall.

"The first week I went to Boston College. Then I went to Louisville. Then I went to North Carolina State and I visited Virginia Tech last. They were all official visits. All the visits were great," Jackson told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "I have one official visit left. I plan on taking one to Clemson. I am thinking about going for the Georgia Tech game."

When asked about his favorites, Jackson responded, "My top five are Boston College, Louisville, North Carolina State, Virginia Tech and Clemson. They are all pretty much even right now."

Clemson defensive line coach Chris Rumph visited Richmond last Friday to see Jamar in person.

"He came by my game last Friday. He liked the way I played he said," Jackson said.

The talented defensive end should be ready to make a commitment in the next few months.

"It will be after my last official visit. It will probably be sometime in November," he said.

What will he consider when making his decision?

"First I will look at academics," replied Jackson. "I will look at the graduation rates. I don't really know what I want to major in, but I have some ideas. I am thinking about business or sports management."
