Five-star prospect Adoree’ Jackson announced his final four last night: Florida, LSU, USC and UCLA. Ranked No. 6 in the country by Rivals.com, the 5-foot-10, 172-pound athlete is the top uncommitted player left on the board.
The Gardena Serra product can be an impact player as a cornerback, receiver or returner. He has one official visit left, but has not said where he will take it.
Jackson is also a state long jump champion, and has Olympic aspirations for the 2016 games in Rio de Janeiro.
Of his four finalists, Florida has by far the strongest track and field program. The Gators have won back-to-back NCAA men’s outdoor titles, and are currently ranked second nationally in USTFCCCA indoor rankings. Junior Marquis Dendy is also the highest-scoring long jumper in the country, setting the NCAA record in the event last season.
LSU, UCLA and USC are ranked 26th, 28th and 29th in the latest indoor rankings. They placed seventh, 12th and fifth in the final 2013 outdoor results.
