Adoree' Jackson has alternated workouts at cornerback and receiver during spring practice -- and he has made standout plays at both positions

Jackson's role on Saturday during the spring game at the Coliseum is still to be determined.

“We’ve got to figure that out,” Coach Steve Sarkisian said. “We’re not sure yet.”

USC fans no doubt would like to see Jackson display the moves he showed last December in the Holiday Bowl, when he scored on a kickoff return for a touchdown and a run-and-catch pass play against Nebraska.

Jackson played mainly on defense last season. He said recently that the extended opportunities on offense this spring have helped him become a better "technician" in all phases of playing receiver.

"When I get in the game [opponents] expect me to get the ball," he said, "but I could be in there blocking, running routes, anything you can think of."
