Adoree' Jackson is the top ranked prospect yet to commit ahead of college football's National Signing Day.
He is expected to announce his decision Wednesday morning, with LSU, Florida State, USC, and UCLA waiting anxiously.
But, in an interview with ESPN, the five-star recruit explained that he also harbours ambitions to represent the USA in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games - in long jump:
"Five years from now I pretty much see myself in the National Football League...sitting on a gold medal in the Olympics in the long jump," he told the TV crew.
And as the top ranked long jumper in the state of California, ranked fifth nationally, this is more than a pipe dream for Jackson.
This desire to combine football and track could well be a defining factor for Jackson as he chooses which school he wishes to attend for the next few years.
The multi-talented nature of Jackson also transfers to the football field with the player, who is listed as a cornerback by 247sports.com, having played in a range of positions for his high school including wide receiver, running back, and special teams member.
Jackson will announce his recruitment decision at 2.10 pm ET tomorrow.
