George County sophomore McKinnley Jackson will have an impressive list of scholarship offers when all is said and done.

He also received a scholarship offer from LSU on June 3, giving him his fourth offer from an SEC program.
Jackson’s other scholarship offers are: Ole Miss, Southern Miss, Mississippi State, Auburn, Louisiana-Lafayette, South Alabama and Memphis.

The 15-year-old was named a first-team Freshman All-American by MaxPreps.
