Trojans defensive back and all-around stud Adoree' Jackson has been named one of three finalists for the Thorpe Award, an honor given to the best college DB in the country.

Jackson, a junior, has four interceptions this season and recently led the Trojans defense in a big upset win over Washington before taking down crosstown rivals UCLA this past weekend. In addition to the interceptions, Jackson has returned two kicks for touchdowns: one punt and one kickoff.

Opposing the USC standout are two seniors, LSU's Tre'Davious White and Michigan's Jourdan Lewis.

The winner of the Thorpe Award will be named on December 8th and honored at a college football awards banquet on February 7, 2017.
