Tide or Tigers for Eddie Jackson?
By Greg Ostendorf
Four-star athlete Eddie Jackson will announce his college decision on Twitter around 8 a.m. ET Wednesday morning. The Florida native has taken official visits to Alabama, Florida State and LSU and will decide between the Crimson Tide and the Tigers.
Alabama: “It’s just everything that they stand for,” Jackson said. “I can be that guy from Fort Lauderdale, the first guy to come up there and have a chance, a chance to go up there and play.”
LSU: “I like the coaching staff a lot. I just like the football team. They’re cool.”
After sitting out his junior season due to academics, Jackson flew under the radar throughout most of the recruiting process. However, the top programs have come on strong recently. Both Alabama and LSU offered scholarships this month.
