      Jackson really liked his visit. South Bend magic baby:

      Jackson Feeling Stronger About Notre Dame -

      I thought it was great honestly, Jackson said of the trip. He also saw Michigan State and Northwestern while he was in the Midwest. It was nice. The facilities were great. The buildings are extremely nice. It was just nice. It was great.

      I expected it to be really nice, but it definitely had a better impact when I saw it.
      Also:

      Notre Dame has always been up near the top for me, Jackson said. Theyve been one of my top schools with Michigan State, since I just visited them, and those two will stay high up on the list.

        ND is recruiting him as a punt/kick returner and slot receiver according to his conversation with Charlie. Verducci (NJ) is his recruiter.

        Jackson had a KOR TD, a pair of PR TDs, 5 rushing TDs, and 4 through the air. He averaged 22.4 ypc, 36c for 806yd.

        I'm curious why only 4 receiving TDs on 36 grabs when terrorizing DBs for 22.4 ypc. Did he have to wait on the ball frequently giving DBs time to catch up?

        Wants to commit before his senior season.

            not overly excited about this kid, but i hope he proves me wrong. With him commiting this will force the staff to target the elite recievers. put all our effort into McCay, Prater, and Woods so we better get at least one. Still would love to land Cooper though

              Two three star guys with a chance at a five or four star? Toss in Shaq, Toma, and all of our other young bucks, then we are in for a hellvua good receiving corps for a long time. Now... we just need someone to get them the ball.

                While Dan Smith is only a 3*, I think he'll be better than that in college. His brother-in-law is Gerome Sapp, so I can only imagine that he's learning things already from not only him, but since he lives in the Bend, he'll be getting tips and help from guys from and around the team, again, he's only a 3*, but I'm very excited about him.

                  This guy is not a 3 star when this class is over. The head honchos at rivals have made note that this kid is going to be in the next rivals 250.

                                        Congats to Jackson and welcome to Notre Dame

                                        I believe the coaches wanted 3 WR in this class. They got their slot guy with Jackson, The red zone target in Smith, now we go after the elite in Prater, McCay, Woods, and Cooper.

                                              really excited about this guy. Once rivals reranks the players the only 3 star guy we should have is Smith, unless they see what Scout sees. I know stars dont matter but its nice to see our players getting the pub they deserve

                                                  Two month courtship. Offer in early April, ND visit late May, verbal early June. Jackson picked ND over offers from MSU RU BC UMD UNC PIT CON IOW MIN NW SYR WVU.


                                                  I kind of knew I was going to Notre Dame for a few weeks now. I'd kind of come to the decision that I was going to go there. I pretty much liked everything about it. There are no negatives I can think of, that's definitely a bonus. I just felt comfortable when I was there. The best thing might be the nice campus and I love that they have really good academics. The academics there will put me in a good position. They have a good football team too and there are a few Jersey guys on the coaching staff, so that was a bonus. There were a lot of things that I liked about it. ... I just felt a lot more comfortable at Notre Dame. ... They're looking at me as a slot receiver who can work on the inside.


                                                  Official Visit set for the MSU game, 9/19.

                                                  A dual threat Jackson had 35 catches/509y/3TD and 35 carries/257y/4TD.

                                                  With Daniel Smith already on board ND appears to have only 1 vacancy left for receiver. Could get interesting as Jerrell Priester is supposed to visit ND on 6/26 and there's still some prime time talent considering joining the ND receiving corps.

                                                  All Aboard!

                                                    Im going to Notre Dame. They were the best of both worlds. I have to look out for my life after college and its a great degree. I loved it out there and got along with all the coaches and players.
                                                    My mom is really excited. She picked a school and I picked a school. We both picked Notre Dame.
                                                    If schools call they call, but Im not changing my mind.

                                                      I kind of just sat down with my mom. We talked about which schools she liked, and what I liked, and I guess the life after college, and we both came to the conclusion that Notre Dame was the best fit. I didn't have any negatives when I went there, and I had some negatives at some of the other schools I visited, and I liked Notre Dame a lot and I just felt comfortable there.
                                                      A return specialist Jackson also returned 2 punts for TDs as well as a KO.

                                                      ESPN has not evaluated Jackson as of yet.

He was running up and down the aisles cheering and let the student body lift him up for the pushups. After that i was sold. glad he is on board.
