Looking for an update on 2020 five-star forward Isaiah Jackson and his recruitment?

Look no further.

After a bit of a quiet period for the 6-foot-9 forward out of Waterford, MI, we now have a confirmed timeline on a decision.

According to Jackson’s father, Wesley Jackson, the five-star forward will make his decision in mid-November, which will allow him to sign during the fall signing period.

“Decision middle of November,” Jackson told Adam Zagoria of ZAGSBLOG in a text message.

The No. 25 overall prospect in the 247Sports Composite Rankings is down to Alabama, Kentucky, and Syracuse, with the Crimson Tide set to host him on an official visit this weekend.

Looking at his Crystal Ball over at 247Sports, Alabama has picked up three of his most recent picks, including two from recruiting experts Jerry Meyer and Andrew Slater. Michigan State – who was cut from his list back in September – has four predictions, with three of them well over a year old.

Kentucky also has one pick from Demetric Warren of, who picked the Wildcats in late August.

Jackson took an official visit to Kentucky back on August 31, with the uber-athletic forward picking up an offer from UK at the conclusion of the trip.

Following his official visit, John Calipari was in to see Jackson on September 17, with the Kentucky head coach taking another trip to see the five-star prospect at his school on October 3.

Wesley Jackson also told Zagoria that Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim and Calipari “stay in touch weekly.”

While we wait for Jackson’s decision, check out some of his most recent highlights from the 2019 Nike EYBL circuit below:

    I’d like to get him wrapped up. He’s a quality player who will probably contribute for at least 2 years, and won’t scare away any of our big targets.

    Hopefully Wenyen Gabriel doesn’t know him.

    With hair like that, he’s definitely destined for Alabama. LOL

    I live in Tuscaloosa and have seen Alabama’s team. The difference between them and UK is staggering. If he chooses Alabama, then as Cal says “Kentucky isn’t for everybody” or he just wants to be the man.
