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

The 6-foot-2, 288-pound defensive lineman picked up an offer from Florida State on Thursday, bringing his list of offers to nine schools.

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.

Jackson received an FBS scholarship offer before he played a down of high school football when ULL head coach Mark Hudspeth saw him at a camp in Ocean Springs.

Jackson had an impressive freshman season for the Rebels, tallying 60 tackles, 30 for negative yardage.

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