2020 five-star forward Isaiah Jackson has included the Kentucky Wildcats in his final cut.
This afternoon, the 6-foot-9, 190-pound prospect out of Waterford, MI announced the final three schools remaining in consideration in his recruitment, with Kentucky joining the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Syracuse Orange.

Jackson, the No. 25 prospect in the 247Sports Composite rankings for 2020, cut schools such as Michigan State, Memphis, Louisville, Florida State, Georgetown, Connecticut, and Oregon, among other offers, from his final list.
The five-star power forward took an official visit to Kentucky on August 30, with UK head coach John Calipari visiting Jackson at his high school in Michigan just a few weeks later after the opening of the fall recruiting period.
In an interview with Adam Zagoria of ZAGSBLOG, Jackson’s father, Wesley Jackson, said things went very well and his son is still a top priority for the Kentucky coaching staff.
“Cal came to the high school yesterday,” Jackson said. “The visit went well. He said he just wanted him to know personally Isaiah is an important piece to his recruitment.”
Jackson is widely expected to make a decision in the coming months and sign in the spring.
