He has plans to visit Gainesville this weekend with his parents.  “Florida is probably coming at me the hardest right now,” Jackson told the Orlando Sentinel.   In addition to Florida and FSU, Jackson has offers from Miami, Clemson, Minnesota, Ohio State, South Carolina and Tennessee. He is also drawing interest from Alabama and would like to visit Tuscaloosa this summer.

5. Alabama, Auburn and Tennessee are among the favorites of five-star quarterback David Cornwell who’s eligibility in Oklahoma high school football is in question. Cornwell was home-schooled in the fall of 2011 in order to help care for his mother.
