Jackson makes decision on agent
• More Senior Bowl coverage
MOBILE, Ala. – University of California star wide receiver and return man DeSean Jackson was making the rounds at the Senior Bowl on Monday afternoon after officially signing with the DeBartolo Sports and Entertainment agency.
Jackson, a junior who left school early, was long rumored to be headed for another agency and was expected to sign with marketing rep Mike Ornstein. However, Jackson will have the DeBartolo agency do both his contract and his marketing work.
Jackson is projected as a first-round pick by many analysts and possesses great speed and quickness. He was limited last season by injuries and had only had 65 receptions for 762 yards and six touchdowns for Cal (7-6).
Jackson set a Pacific-10 Conference record with six punt returns for touchdowns in his career. He emerged as a top prospect in 2006 when he had 59 receptions for 1,060 yards and nine touchdowns. He finished his career third in Cal history with 2,423 yards receiving and 22 touchdowns.
