Jackson joins FSU at defensive back

By Corey Dowlar

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Another commitment has come in for head coach Jimbo Fisher during Florida State's first summer camp.

Rising senior Malique Jackson (Jesup, Ga./Wayne County), a long, rangy athlete at 6-foot-1, committed to the Seminoles after camping in front assistant coach Jeremy Pruitt. Jackson primarily worked out at cornerback, a place where Pruitt seems to like size.

"Yes, they recruited him as a corner," said Jackson's high school coach, Jody Grooms.

Jackson is the Seminoles' fourth commitment of this camp session, joining Ryan Sousa, Ethan Frith and Marlon Gonzalez.

Jackson attends the same school that produced current starting right guard Tre' Jackson.
