4-Star Linebacker Dontavious Jackson Drops Impressive Top 8 Schools List

Houston native Dontavious Jackson is one of the nation's top linebackers, ranked No. 5 at his position in the country by 247Sports' composite rankings. He has the top schools list to match. On Sunday, Jackson dropped a top seven, featuring schools from each of the five power conferences.

That group wasn't final, however. On Monday morning, he added an eighth school to the list.

A&M makes sense as a local power, but location doesn't seem to be a major factor based on Jackson's other options. Jackson is the No. 17 player in Texas in the 2016 recruiting class.
