Isaiah Jackson is good at dunking basketballs.
Of the six players in Kentucky’s 2020 recruiting class, currently ranked No. 1 in America by 247 Sports, Jackson is probably the player I know the least about. After four minutes of highlights, I can now say with conviction that Isiah Jackson is VERY good at dunking basketballs.
The BBN has seen many impressive highlight tapes over the years. What makes Jackson stand above the rest — and I mean that in a very literal sense — is his ability to look the rim in the eyes before throwing down. Being a lengthy, 6’9″ athlete shortens the distance that needs to be traveled to the rim. It doesn’t matter to Jackson. He goes eye-to-eye with the rim and sends it home.
Enjoy the spectacle curated by the fine folks at Courtside Films and dream of a world where you to can look a ten-foot rim in the eye before abusing it.
