Marquis Jackson left USC after his official visit today with some doubt whether or not he would stick with his commitment to UCLA, or join his brother Malik and play for the Trojans. As the hours passed and he had time to reflect, Jackson realized UCLA was the best choice for him. Jackson told Scout.com tonight that he was staying solid with his commitment to the Bruins.

"The visit to USC was cool and all, but I've decided to stay with UCLA," said Jackson. "I just felt more comfortable at UCLA, we've meshed much more and my relationships with the UCLA coaches is much stronger. That's why I'm staying with them."

Jackson has one more semester left at College of the Canyons before he'll be eligible to play for UCLA in the fall. He said everything is falling into place and is on track to get his Associate Arts degree after the spring semester.
