Former University of Florida cornerback J.C. Jackson is preparing to play football again.

Jackson’s parents tell WINK Sports that he’s in Tampa working out with a personal trainer, in order to be in the best possible shape for the next school he plays for.

Back in May, University of Florida head football coach Jim McElwain announced that Jackson was no longer enrolled at UF, following an arrest on April 18th. Jackson was arrested on three robbery charges, but his court case is still pending.

According to Rivals.com, Jackson chose to leave Florida because his scholarship was revoked while his case was still being sorted out.

According to a source close to the family, Jackson is being heavily recruited by two Kansas Junior Colleges: Dodge City Community College, and Garden City Community Colllege.  Both schools have a history of sending players to Division I schools and the NFL. Garden City produced former Auburn Quarterback and current Jacksonville Jaguars Defensive Back Nick Marshall.

Jackson’s parents tell WINK Sports that he has chosen a school, but they aren’t ready to release that information publicly.
