Alabama offers South Mississippi sophomore standout

George County defensive lineman McKinnley Jackson’s 10th scholarship offer Saturday came from last year’s national runner-up Alabama.

The rising sophomore also has offers from Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Southern Miss, Auburn, South Alabama, LSU, Florida State, Memphis and Louisiana-Lafayette.

Jackson is a 6-foot-2, 260-pound had a huge freshman campaign in Lucedale last season. He had 60 tackles total, including 30 for negative yardage.

Jackson recently told the Sun Herald he plans to take his time on making a decision, but is open to committing by the end of his junior year.
