As is the case with seemingly every recruit that attends Immokalee High School in Immokalee, Florida, the recruitment of 4-star wide receiver/defensive back J.C. Jackson has been all over the map.
Back in March of 2012, Jackson committed to the Florida State Seminoles. He visited the Seminoles throughout the 2012 season and was committed until June of 2013, when he flipped to the Florida Gators. Jackson has remained committed to Florida throughout the process, but has been very interested in Florida State and the Miami Hurricanes.
Most pundits believed if Jackson ever officially visited Florida State, he would flip to the Seminoles. Because of his parents’ wishes, that visit never happened.
However, Jackson did continue to visit Miami and many thought he could flip to the Hurricanes on Signing Day.
That did not happen.

The 5’10, 180-pound Jackson can play either offense or defense, but will likely start on offense for Florida because they badly need playmakers. Jackson is considered the 19th best wide receiver in the country, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.
