James Jackson visiting for Penn State

Grand Ledge wide receiver stand-out and Ohio State recruit James Jackson is having a great senior season with his team now 5-0. The team will face a tough East Lansing team this Friday which features one of the biggest offensive lines in the league. Jackson has been busy with football and school but will make a trip to Columbus for the Penn State game and is very much looking forward to the visit.

Great Receiving Prospect

Rated the 29th best receiver in the country by Rivals.com, James Jackson will arrive in Columbus in 2009 as part of a three member receiving class including Chris Fields from Painesville Ohio and Duron Carter, Chris Carter’s son. Jackson has good size at 6’0” 175lbs and blazing speed with 4.31 seconds in the 40 recorded. Jackson accepted an offer from Ohio State over offers from Purdue, Wisconsin, Alabama, Florida, Michigan and Michigan State.

Grand Ledge High School

Grand Ledge High School is off to a great start this year with Jackson running and receiving. He feels the current season may be the best since he’s started. “5-0 is a great accomplishment so. For us to bounce back from 2 seasons of 3-6 records I just can't say enough about this team.” He told us recently about Grand Ledge’s season. “I believe that we are playing well as a team but look to improve every week.”

This Friday they will face East Lancing which could be the toughest game so far. “I also believe that we do face a difficult team Friday. They have a big offensive line the biggest we are going to face so far this season.” He said. The key will be stopping their running attack. “As long as we stop the run we should be in good shape.”

Penn State Visit

Jackson was in town for the Spring Game and got a feel for the atmosphere in Ohio Stadium but is looking forward to a visit for Penn State when the crowd should be in a frenzy. “I have not yet been to an Ohio state game this season but I plan to attend the Penn state game. I went to the spring game and I love the game atmosphere.”
