Tyrone Jackson Loves ASU's Camaraderie

DevilsDigest caught up with the Fresno City College point guard after he visited the Sun Devils this weekend.

"It's going great," Tyrone Jackson said about his visit. "I had fun with the guys here, and I like how they all get along with each other. The campus was nice, I liked the facilities, and I liked the coaching staff."

Last year, Jackson was the co-player junior college player of the year in California, and is a prime candidate to repeat this honor following his sophomore year. The point guard averaged 23.9 points per game, 7.4 assists, and 6.4 rebounds. All those were team highs, as well as his 118 steals, and 69 blocks. "I'm a good ball handler, passer, and penetrater," replied Jackson when asked to self asses his skills. "I need to work more on my shot and ball handling."

The point guard listed ASU, along with USC and San Diego State as his top three choices. "ASU is my first visit," he said. "I'm going to visit San Diego State on April 7th. It's hard to say if I'll take any more visits after the San Diego State one. It's pretty much between ASU and San Diego State."

Jackson mentioned that he wanted to go to a school where he enjoys the company of the players, and to a team that can compete. He does feel that the Sun Devils do meet all those requirements. "I just want to go somewhere where I can fit in and help out. I know these guys had a down year. You can see they have a lot a talent. They're young, but they can get a lot better, and they can turn it around."
