Eddie Jackson Commits To Alabama

Athlete Eddie Jackson from Boyd Anderson High School in Lauderdale Lakes, Fla., has committed to Alabama.

“I like how the program is run,” Jackson said, per ESPN RecruitingNation. “It’s just everything that they stand for. 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.”

Jackson could play on offense or defense at Alabama with the expectation being he’ll play on defense.

“They want me to play defensive back,” said Jackson, who also considered LSU.

Alabama is also in the running for defensive backs Vonn Bell from Chattanooga, Tenn., and Tony Conner from Batesville, Miss. But Bell has shown strong interest in Tennessee and Conner is seriously considering Ole Miss.

Jackson’s commitment gives Alabama 22 commitments for the class of 2013. Signing day is Feb. 6.

Will Treadwell Lead Strong Finish For Ole Miss?

Wide receiver Laquon Treadwell from Crete, Ill., is set to announce his college decision on Thursday.

Ole Miss is the expected destination for Treadwell, who’s also considering Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. His visit to Ole Miss in December made a lasting impression and might have sealed the deal for the Rebels.

“My visit went very, very good,” Treadwell told “My mom loved it the most, so that’s the best thing. I feel like it’s home when it’s home when I’m around the coaches and players and that’s the most important thing. I feel like I fit right in with everything Ole Miss is trying to do with the program and I love the offense they’re running.”

Ole Miss is also close to landing several defensive standouts in the class of 2013. The most notable is Loganville, Ga., defensive end Robert Nkemdiche, the nation’s top overall prospect. The Rebels are also in the mix for standouts like defensive back Tony Conner and defensive end Elijah Daniel.

In fact, Gerry Hamilton of 247Sports believes Ole Miss will land all four of the above players. What a finish that would be for Ole Miss, which currently has the nation’s No. 21 class by 247Sports.

Could Ole Miss finish with a top-10 class nationally on signing day? Discuss on the new MrSEC Google+ Community.
