Report: Miami Interested In Former Florida Cornerback J.C. Jackson

J.C. Jackson was a promising cornerback for the Florida Gators, until he was arrested for armed robbery last April. The former four-star recruit was acquitted in November, and expressed his interest in rejoining the Gators. It is unclear if that is an option, but another Florida power program is reportedly interested in Jackson: Miami. From the Miami Herald:

UM plans to pursue former UF four-star corner JC Jackson, UM cornerbacks coach Mike Rumph told Jackson’s position coach at Riverside Community College. That position coach said Jackson would be eligible to play at Miami or elsewhere immediately if he graduates this spring, and he's on track to.

Here is Jackson's recruiting profile from 2014.

If he winds up with the Hurricanes, he would give Mark Richt's secondary a serious infusion of talent.
