Jackson decommits from UConn, commits to UGA
Will Jackson changed his tune. Jackson, a 6-foot-5 guard out of Athens (Ga.) Christian School, was headed to Connecticut, but on Monday he backed off that pledge and committed to Georgia. “I’m going to UGA,” Jackson told Scout.com enthusiastically. “It’s close to home,” he added. “I just feel like it’s a great fit with me, coach Fox and the coaches and players.” Jackson said he spoke to the Connecticut staff a “week or two ago.” “They have a lot of guards and they signed a couple,” Jackson said. “We just thought me going somewhere else would help would be better for my future.” “I’m already in Athens,” Jackson added. “I already see the love that that fans show to basketball and football and even gymnastics. Plus it’ll be easy transition for me.” Jackson said he’s known Mark Fox since middle school and the two have kept in touch. “It’s great,” he said abou this relationship with him. “I’ve known coach Fox since 8th grade. Even when I committed to Connecticut, he would call and ask if he could talk to me. He would talk to me about my games and tell me what I could do better.”
