Donte Jackson: LSU edges UGA for DB (UPDATED)

Wednesday might feel like signing day to some UGA fans.

Donte Jackson, a 4-star cornerback from Orleans will announce his college decision at 11:30 a.m. on a webcast you can watch HERE.

Jackson’s finalists are LSU and UGA, along with USC.

Mark Richt made an in-home visit with Jackson on Tuesday night, according to UGASports.

LSU is considered to be the school to beat because the Tigers are the home-state school. Jackson visited UGA this past weekend, and what has confused some (including myself) is that Jackson decided to announce his college decision before reporting for an official visit to LSU this weekend.

So even if Jackson commits to UGA, LSU will be in prime position.

As with any top prospect, there are plenty of conspiracy theories floating. One reader pointed out there may be some good news coming for UGA because Jackson recently followed four Bulldog coaches on Twitter. However, someone else pointed out that Jackson may have done that to DM them “thanks for recruiting me but …”

Anyways, consider Wednesday as a warm-up for signing day.
