Great news with all he has been through....
Jackson hired a trainer a few weeks ago, just to make sure he'd be in good shape for Nebraska's summer strength and conditioning program.
He'd already been working out three times a day during the week. Up as early as 5 a.m. sometimes, just for a wake-up run. Then the gym, where he occasionally mimicked routines off YouTube.He never wanted to go to a junior college, even though there were coaches who called. He never wanted to reopen his recruitment, either — Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, USC and Arkansas were among the schools that showed interest last fall.
He kept in contact with coach Bo Pelini and assistant John Papuchis. One call a week, per NCAA rules.
He's struck up a friendship with incoming freshman linebacker Michael Rose. A former high school teammate, David Santos, is a redshirt freshman linebacker.
All the rest here....a story really worth the read:
