    Bucks offer 2018 WR
    Ohio State recently sent an offer to 2018 wide receiver Kearis Jackson. With the Buckeyes offering, it makes 16 total for the standout from Georgia. Jackson, who is one of the top players from the Peach State, is an elite offensive weapon who also shines at running back at his high school, Peach County. He has good hands to go along with great ability after the catch. Prying a top recruit out of Georgia will be no easy task, especially with Georgia Bulldogs head coach Kirby Smart putting an emphasis on locking down the state.

    Still, the Buckeyes have had success in Georgia in the past and it’ll be a fight all the way up to National Signing Day 2018 to land Jackson’s services. In addition to being heavily courted by Ohio State and Georgia, Jackson is also entertaining Alabama, Auburn, Florida, and Florida State. Jackson is a top 200 player, according to 247Sports and a four-star athlete.

    EMORY'S ON IT

    Fort Valley, Georgia, Peach County four-star wide receiver Kearis Jackson included Ohio State in his Top 8 earlier this week alongside Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU and Michigan.

    “Me and Ohio State have a great bond together,” Jackson told Eleven Warriors following Friday's practice at The Opening Finals. “I talk to coach [Zach] Smith, coach [Urban] Meyer and coach [Ryan] Day all the time. I see myself in their type of offense, they put guys in the league and I just feel comfortable talking to the coaches.”

    The 6-foot, 203-pound Jackson is considered the 21st-best receiver and No. 98 prospect overall in the Class of 2018, as he hauled in 52 passes for 739 yards and nine scores for the Trojans last season. The Buckeyes offered him a scholarship in early February, and Smith recently stopped by his high school to watch practice during the spring evaluation period.

    “I'm a different receiver from everybody else. I'm not all tall and stuff, but I can move,” Jackson said. “I can play the slot and get open. I'm good and finding the zones, sitting there and just working my way around the offense.”

    Jackson is close with four-star quarterback commit Emory Jones, and the two talk almost daily.

    “He's recruiting me hard,” Jackson said. “He wants me to come play with him.”

    Jackson hopes to visit Columbus for the first time in either August or September and make a decision on his future shortly thereafter.

    “I'm looking forward to getting up to campus,” he said.

    -After a slow start in Oregon, receiver Kearis Jackson (Fort Valley, GA/Peach County) responded with a big showing Monday. By our count, he grabbed 11 catches with two touchdowns while making plays all over the field. In one game, Jackson caught six throws.

    IN EVERYONE'S TOP LIST

    Just a little under a month after he included Ohio State in his Top 8 alongside Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU and Michigan, Fort Valley, Georgia, Peach County four-star wide receiver Kearis Jackson announced he'll make his college decision on August 19.
    The 6-foot, 203-pound Jackson is considered the 24th-best receiver and No. 121 prospect overall in the Class of 2018, as he hauled in 52 passes for 739 yards and nine scores for the Trojans last season. Wide receivers coach Zach Smith offered him a scholarship following a practice during the spring evaluation period.

    “Me and Ohio State have a great bond together,” Jackson told Eleven Warriors at The Opening Finals earlier this month. “I talk to coach Smith, coach Meyer and coach [Ryan] Day all the time. I see myself in their type of offense, they put guys in the league and I just feel comfortable talking to the coaches.”

    Unfortunately, Jackson has never been to Columbus, and his trip to Alabama this weekend will be his last unofficial visit before he makes his decision. He could take an official visit this fall, of course, but that seems unlikely.

    Georgia is the overwhelming favorite to land his pledge. Ohio State, meanwhile, remains the favorite to land both St. Louis four-star Kamryn Babb and Huber Heights Wayne four-star L'Christian "Blue" Smith, so the staff never really made Jackson a priority.
