One team is out with Gibbs DE Tim Jackson. Meantime, a new team has emerged.

Jackson said late Tuesday night he has dropped Stanford, which had been one of his favorites. The reason: Several defensive assistants, including D.J. Durkin, the person recruiting Jackson for the Cardinal, have left for other staffs (Durkin is headed to Florida).

This development leaves North Carolina and Wake Forest at the top, Jackson said.

The 6-foot-5, 220-pound standout will visit Vanderbilt next week. He’s also considering trips to Iowa State and Mississippi State. The latter has recently entered the pictured, largely because Jackson likes the idea of playing in the ultra-competitive Southeastern Conference.

According to Jackson, the Bulldogs are also showing interest in Lakewood RB Bernard Reedy.
