Tennessee among 6 finalists for 5-star prospect Adoree Jackson


KNOXVILLE,TennesseeAdoree Jackson, a five-star cornerback prospect from California, is down to six finalists. 

Not surprisingly, Tennessee was among the group.

Florida, LSU, Oklahoma, UCLA and USC were the others.

Jackson is the No. 1 player in California and the No. 2 cornerback and No. 7 overall prospect in the nation according to the 247Sports Composite. So he’s accustomed to the attention that comes from even an announcement of “finalists.”

All six teams were listed in alphabetical order.

For what it’s worth, the 247Sports Crystal Ball gives the Vols virtually no chance of landing Jackson. Most of the 50 experts expect he’ll stay close to home and sign with Southern Cal. His recruiter? Former Vols quarterback Tee Martin, who was retained by new USC coach Steve Sarkisian.

The Vols would undoubtedly find room for Jackson on their crowded commitment list.
