UPDATE 9:51 PM EST, 2/5/14: Despite Sherman's assurances that Jackson is headed for SC, the Trojans are still waiting on his letter of intent (via Mike Scarborough, who originally broke the story):
#USC still waiting for the signed national letter from Adoree' Jackson. Been coming any minute for two hours.— Mike Scarborough (@ScarboroughMike) February 6, 2014
UPDATE 9:34 PM EST, 2/5/14: According to ESPN's Mitch Sherman, Jackson's father plans to let his son attend USC as originally planned.
Adoree’ Jackson’s father, Christopher, says LOI to be faxed soon to USC. No indecision among family, he says.— Mitch Sherman (@mitchsherman) February 6, 2014
Christopher Jackson says he supports decision: “Wherever he decided he wanted to go, that’s where he’s going. It has nothing to do with me.”— Mitch Sherman (@mitchsherman) February 6, 2014
So much for a drama-free national signing day. Five-star CB/ATH Adoree' Jackson apparently didn't fax his letter of intent to USC like he announced he would - because his father took it from him and wants him to attend LSU.
There's a discussion on the situation going on behind the paywall on multiple LSU recruiting sites, referenced in this Tweet from Rivals' LSU analyst Mike Scarborough:
Craziness with Adoree' Jackson's scholarship papers. Dad takes paperwork? Wants #LSU? http://t.co/FzFwvsER8T

High drama, if true. We'll provide updates as we learn more about this developing story.
