Editor's note: This is a series introducing Alabama's 2013 recruiting class that will continue to run after signing day.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- The recruiting process started late for four-star athlete Eddie Jackson, but it didn’t take long for him to make a decision. After earning a scholarship from Alabama and taking his official visit to Tuscaloosa, he knew he wanted to sign with the Crimson Tide. Jackson played on both sides of the ball in high school, but he’s expected to start out at cornerback for Alabama. Head coach Nick Saban told him he has a chance to play early.

Q: What made you sign with Alabama?
