USC football standout Adoree' Jackson will compete in two events at the Pac-12 track and field championships

USC football standout Adoree’ Jackson will compete in the long jump and 100-meter dash at the Pac-12 Conference track and field championships this weekend at UCLA.

Jackson is seeded fifth in the long jump after he leaped 25 feet 2 inches in a dual meet with UCLA earlier this month. His mark ranks 18th in the NCAA.

Jackson ran a personal-best 10.54 seconds in the 100 meter dash at the USC-UCLA meet and is seeded 12th for the Pac-12 championships.

Jackson resumed track and field practice and competition after spring football ended April 11.
