USC’s Adoree’ Jackson, who played cornerback, kick-returner and receiver last season as a freshman, chose the Trojans over Florida, UCLA and Louisiana State when he was being recruited.

LSU Coach Les Miles continues to track Jackson's progress.

During a signing-day news conference last week, Miles was asked how rare it was to find a player who could make an impact in all three phases.

"Not often," Miles told reporters. "Adoree' Jackson was a very special guy and is having a great career at USC."

Jackson scored on three pass plays, returned two kicks for touchdowns and deflected 10 passes.

Jackson responded on Twitter, "Respect to @LSUCoachMiles for the comments," he wrote.
