Jackson looking at options

Justin Jackson is one of the top players in 2014 and Arizona entered his recruitment this summer. Read on to see his thoughts on the Wildcats, other teams involved, and more.

Perhaps no player improved his stock more this summer than Justin Jackson.

The 6-foot-6 Spring (Texas) forward is a smooth shooter with an unlimited amount of upside and is most likely still growing. Needless to say, college coaches are enamored by his potential.

"I'm getting a lot more attention now than I was before the summer," Jackson said. "It's gratifying because I've put in a lot of work, and it's nice to see some people notice."

Some of those people that have noticed are the coaches for schools that many consider to be the best in the country.

"In the last three weeks I've gotten offers from North Carolina, Louisville and Maryland, and before that I got some offers from some really good schools like Arizona," Jackson said.

The Wildcat coaching staff is doing everything possible to impress Jackson.

"The coaching staff has been pretty cool," Jackson said. "I haven't been able to find out a lot more because I've been on vacation, but we've texted when we are allowed and it's been cool.

"Arizona is definitely a school that I want to look into and find out more about."

In the meantime, Jackson has one major goal.

"I want to get stronger," Jackson said. "I think that's my main problem right now and as I get stronger, I think it will help me in a number of ways.

"It will help my rebounding and quickness and other stuff, so right now that's my top priority."

Jackson plans on taking his time with the recruiting process.

"Honestly, all the new attention has been great and I'm still trying to process everything," Jackson said.

"I have a lot of options now and I want to make sure I give all these schools a chance."
