Jackson 100-percent sure on State

If there was ever any doubt that Gabriel Jackson would be lining up for the Bulldogs next season it was cleared up with his official visit this weekend.

The 6-foot-4, 310-pound offensive tackle from Liberty, Miss., was one of 16 visitors on the Mississippi State campus this weekend.

"It went pretty good," Jackson said. "I enjoyed myself. "I knew that I was coming up there anyway but after coming up there this weekend I really knew 100-percent that is where I wanted to be."
