Gardena Serra High reunion will wait until after USC-UCLA game

Adoree’ Jackson discusses USC-UCLA rivalry week and the return of Josh Shaw.

There will be no pregame high school reunion for freshman Adoree’ Jackson when USC plays UCLA on Saturday at the Rose Bowl.

Six players from Jackson’s class at Gardena Serra High play for USC or UCLA. Jackson, quarterback Jalen Greene, linebacker Olajuwon Tucker and cornerback Jalen Jones are Trojans. Receiver Jordan Lasley and linebacker Dwight Williams are Bruins.

Jackson said he has not talked to former teammates this week.

“During game week,” he said, “I don’t communicate with them.”

Jackson said they would shake hands and “catch up” after the game.
