2016 linebacker Dontavious Jackson has virtually every program in the country pining for his services. 

A Houston native, Jackson has every characteristic one would want in a middle linebacker. He's fast, aggressive, physical, and plays the game in a controlled manner. Jackson's instincts and football I.Q. truly stand out when watching his film. 

During the Under Armour All-America Game practice session, Jackson took some time to dive into his recruiting process — divulging which schools have caught his eye. 

He's already taken official visits to Michigan, Florida State, and UCLA, and is slated to officially visit Florida and Alabama in January. Additionally, Jackson will attempt to squeeze in unofficial visits to the likes of LSU, Florida State, Texas, and Michigan. 

A straight-A student, Jackson's dedication to both athletics and academics makes him a special prospect. Couple that with his big personality, and there's no question he possesses the ability to one day become a household name for all college football fans.
