Highly-recruited athlete Eddie Jackson (Lauderdale Lakes, Fla./Boyd Anderson) was thought to be a near-lock for Florida State when the Seminoles offered two months ago. Since then, though, the 6-foot-1, 178-pound senior has received some major offers from top SEC programs.

Jackson recently was offered by Alabama and will take official visits to Alabama, LSU and Arkansas in the next three weeks, so this weekend’s official visit to Florida State was a chance for the Seminoles to get some distance between themselves and the stout competition.
