Florida commit J.C. Jackson never fails to make things interesting, and he did so again this weekend.
The four-star athlete was initially scheduled to officially visit Florida State, the school he appeared destined for after his comments at the Under Armour All-America Game.
He then called off the trip Thursday and set up an in-home visit with Miami coach Al Golden for Saturday. Chris Jackson, J.C.’s father, said his son’s recruitment would come down to UF and UM.
Before his meeting with Golden, however, Jackson changed plans one last time.
He woke up and decided to visit Florida, making the five-hour trip to Gainesville and arriving at 2 p.m.
“It was spur of the moment,” said Jackson, who was decked out in Gator gear.
The 5-foot-10, 175-pounder was reluctant to speak with The Sun as he was heading home, but did talk briefly about his trip.
“I had a nice time,” he said. “I came to spend time with my position coach, T-Rob (Travaris Robinson). I love him. I went to the basketball game and had a good experience.”
Jackson left UF at 6:30 p.m. and will make it back to Immokalee in time for Golden to visit him before the contact period ends at midnight.
When asked if his UF pledge had been solidified, Jackson responded, “You’ll see Wednesday.”
