More recruiting news! Five-star forward Isaiah Jackson just shared that he will announce his college decision on Saturday, November 16.

Jackson, a 6-foot-9 forward out of Waterford, MI, is down to three schools: Kentucky, Alabama, and Syracuse. The Crimson Tide account for three of the most recent picks on his 247 Sports Crystal Ball, including two from recruiting experts Jerry Meyer and Andrew Slater.

Jackson is considered the No. 25 prospect in the 2020 247Sports Composite Rankings, No. 22 in the ESPN player rankings, No. 23 on Rivals.com, and No. 31 on 247Sports. He took an official visit to Kentucky back on August 31, picking up an offer from John Calipari at the conclusion of the trip. Cal also visited him on October 3.

Jerry Meyer, 247 Sports’ Director of Basketball Scouting, is impressed with Jackson’s athleticism, instincts, and timing as a shot blocker.

“Adequate length but very slender for a four man,” Meyer wrote in his evaluation. “Tremendous athlete. Fast and a high riser. Has an extremely quick second jump and the instincts and timing of a top-notch shot blocker. Not considered a skilled offensive player but his skill level is steadily improving. Motor, athleticism and potential project him as a first round pick.”

Check out some of Jackson’s most recent highlights from the 2019 Nike EYBL circuit below:

    This is very misleading most of his crystal ball picks are Michigan State and they’re not in his final three. Would love to have this kid. GO CATS!!

    Why don’t we just ask our “experts” and see where Jackson is going? Jack, Travis, and Sisk were all over the Cade Cunningham recruitment! If they get it right it’s “I told you sol”. If they get it wrong it’s “recruiting is fluid!” When you don’t know, just say you don’t know! Click bait! Fake news! Clowns! Learn how to speak, Travis Graf!

    Why don’t our “experts” tell us where Jackson is going? They were all over the Cade Cunningham recruitment! Jack Pilgrim, Davis Sisk, and especially Travis Graf are all 3 pathetic! Let me guess, recruiting is fluid? You guys are jokes!

    I’ve never liked this young mans game very much personally. Now he does have a good second jump, but I’d rather go after Brown and then look for someone that’s got a little muscle on them. There’s plenty kids out there that’s around 6’9 230, even if they’re a three star kid. Just my opinion but I’d rather have some big strong kid.
