USC Football Recruiting

Never Any Doubt With Josh Jackson

October 30, 2019

Four-star Narbonne wide receiver Joshua Jackson‍ announced his commitment to USC back in the Spring after seriously considering Oregon and Washington, but he’s never looked back.

And while he’s committed to the Trojans and never been wrapped up in the recruiting process, he plans to possibly take a few official visits before he signs his letter of intent in December.

One of the main draws to USC for Jackson, who’s significantly elevated his level of play this past year, was the hiring of Graham Harrell and the implementation of his version of the “Air-Raid Offense.”

“I’ve seen a change in the offense, I’ve seen a change in the tempo, it’s very fast and it’s being executed really well,” said Jackson.

Although the Trojans are just 5-3 heading into a huge matchup vs Oregon Saturday at the Coliseum, Jackson’s seen a team with an attractive and bright future.

“I see a lot of young players, they're making little mistakes that can easily be cleaned up I just love the culture up there now,” said Jackson. “That's one of main reasons I chose USC. I just love it up there and between the players, the staff and the school in general, I feel ,Ike it's the best fit for me."

There's been several challenges USC’s faced this year dealing with key injuries, but none more challenging than using three different starting quarterbacks. Yet the Trojans have scored more than 30 points in seven of eight games. The only game they failed to score 30 was at Washington when Matt Fink made his first start of the season. USC’s ability to consistently score points this season, despite key injuries has shown Jackson a lot about Harrell's offensive scheme.

“I feel like the offense can definitely be something special, Jackson said. "I see a lot of potential in the offense and I just can't wait to be a part of it."

Former wide receivers coach and offensive coordinator Tee Martin was one of the top recruiters for the Trojans during his eight years at USC, but Keary Colbert has done a great job during his short time as WRs coach. Not only are the USC WRs playing at an extremely high level, Colbert has also developed solid relationships with recruits like Jackson.

“Keary Colbert is my guy and I go up to SC every Sunday for film, we talk a lot, he teaches me a lot and I learn a lot from him,” said Jackson. “He's not only a coach to me, he's a mentor to me. KC is my guy and always will be my guy."

When at USC, Jackson also mingles with friends on the team, other coaches and enjoying the collegiate atmoshpere.

“I always look forward to seeing the other coaches when I'm on campus, and also seeing my guys Kyle Ford, Tyler Vaughns, Amon-Ra St. Brown, Drake London and Munir McClain. Those are all my guys, so I love the environment and being around those guys."

Jackson will take his official visit to USC in December, but unsure of the date at this point.
