Jackson making strides

St. John Bosco forward Vance Jackson keeps improving and with that improvement comes more recruiting attention. Read on for Jackson's thoughts on how he has been playing, his recruitment, and more.

Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco forward Vance Jackson has made major strides in his game since last season.

The 6-foot-7 forward had an impressive Pangos All-American Camp and a major reason why is a change in his overall mentality.

"I am being more aggressive and showing people what I have," Jackson said. "I want to show my all-around game more than I have in the past."

Jackson's aggressiveness is just one of the reasons why his recruitment continues to gain momentum.

"Recruiting is going good," he said. "Texas, Gonzaga, California, North Carolina, Kansas, UCLA, USC are showing interest. Washington, Arizona, Arizona State, and UConn are the schools that have already offered me."

There are two schools that Jackson is quick to point to when discussing those that are recruiting him the hardest.

"I would say that Arizona is recruiting me the hardest along with UConn," he said. "Arizona tells me they like wings and I fit perfectly in their system. They told me to watch Solomon Hill and that is how I would be used if I went there."

The plan for now is to hold off on taking visits, as Jackson is likely to wait for next season.

"I think I am going to wait until my junior year to take visits, but I am not sure where," he said. "Other than that, I don't really have anything planned."

When he finally does go on those visits, the four-star prospect knows what he will be looking for.

"I am looking to see where I would be the most comfortable and how I would fit in," he said. "The environment will be real important to me and if I get along well with the team and the coaches."
