Did JC Jackson really say this?
"I haven't flipped yet but it could be coming soon. Florida is my number one choice now. The academics here are way better than Florida State. And it's the SEC, where you play against the best," said the defensive back. "I'm not making any decision yet. I'm just gonna sit on things but I know I'll be decommiting from Florida State soon."
How is he still committed? They are obviously selling the SEC thing hard core. Being in the ACC does seem to have a negative effect on recruiting now.
Scalp 'Em Seminoles!!!
"The academics here are way better than Florida State."
Ok, I hate to be harsh here, but the kid has problems with grades at Immokalee. He should concentrate on learning to read and count to 10 before acting like a university's academic prestige actually matter to him.
Uncalled for Chief.
This all I have to say to JC...

GO NOLES! / SCALP EM!
Academics are what you make of them and it also depends what your major is. UF is better in some majors and FSU is better in some majors. Not to mention, The latest Princeton Review rated FSU as a better school than UF. The kid is being fed BS and he is eating it up.
As for the SEC, they've always sold that....even 20 years ago. FSU will get theirs and UF will get theirs....as always. As long as FSU is winning, in BCS contention and putting kids into the NFL, conference affiliation will not matter to us in recruiting. We need to stay clear of Immokalee, in my opinion.

There are already two Jackson bashing threads on the board.
Kid is good, made an early commitment. Doesnt come from the best area and probably doesnt have a solid mentor to help him with recruiting. Simply put Florida is doing a better job recruiting him than we are.
"Some people think football is a matter of life and death, I assure you, it is much more serious than that."
"Smell that Johnny? Smells like somebody died"
My god, people, the kid didn't say "FSU is a complete garbage school and UF is Harvard."
UF is a better school than FSU. Does FSU have programs that are better than UF? Of course. But there's a reason UF is ranked higher overall.
I can't believe people are bashing a damned 16 year old kid for saying UF has better academics than FSU.
"Learn to read and count to 10"?
Just an absolutely uncalled for comment. This is a kid at a school with no leadership and a poor support structure.
Princeton review on a scale of 100
Thank you for this. I'm saving it.
Also, I believe FSU reported that their incoming students (2012) had a higher average GPA and SAT/ACT score than the average incoming UF student. I'll try and track them down.
