Pascagoula defensive end Rasheed Jackson made his college choice on Sunday.
Jackson announced on his twitter account he’ll sign with East Mississippi Community College.
The senior had Division I scholarship offers from Southern Miss, Jackson State and Nicholls State.
“I would like to thank every coach and school that has recruited me over the years,” Jackson wrote. “You are all greatly appreciated. But after talking with my parents and family, I am very excited to announce that for the next year or two, I will be playing for the East Mississippi Lions.”
