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.”
