    Dontavious Jackson recruiting update. The 4-star linebacker has named his top five schools.

    National Signing Day is just over two weeks away now. Come Wednesday, Feb. 3, we’ll find out where this year’s crop of talented recruits will call home for their college careers. 

    One of those recruits is 4-star linebacker Dontavious Jackson, the No. 4 inside linebacker and No. 105 overall player, according to 247Sports.

    Jackson sent out a tweet on Monday afternoon, listing his top five schools: Florida, Texas, Michigan, Alabama and Florida State. He’ll announce his decision on National Signing Day.

    Being that he’s from Houston, Texas, the Longhorns seem to be the favorite, but it’s never a done deal in recruiting. All four of Charlie Strong’s competitors for Jackson’s commitment have tenacious recruiters.

    Basically, what we have here is a five-way fight between heavyweight contenders. It’s Strong vs. Jim McElwain vs. Jim Harbaugh vs. Jimbo Fisher vs. Nick Saban. Jackson obviously knows what he’s doing.
