Just more than a month ago, Kenji Jackson ended his recruitment and committed to the Missouri Tigers. Jackson had a chance to reinforce that decision on Tuesday night when Gary Pinkel stopped in his Mansfield, TX home for a visit.

Not that others haven't been trying to change the mind of the No. 74 player in the Lone Star State.

"Nebraska came in, but other than that, it's been quiet," Jackson said. "They were trying to get me to come up there to take a visit, but I told them I was set and I was staying solid with Missouri."

The Huskers started their recruiting effort of Jackson after hiring Tim Beck away from Kansas. Beck had recruited Jackson for the Jayhawks, who came in as the runner-up to Mizzou.

"Yeah, that was a trip," Jackson said. "He had been trying to get me to go to Kansas and then he leaves and goes to Nebraska."

Despite Beck's efforts, Jackson insisted that Tiger fans have no worries whatsoever.

"No, not at all," said the three-star safety.

Jackson will sign with the Tigers on February 6th at his high school.
