Jackson talks decommitment, UA to get visit

LAS VEGAS -- Scout caught up with Frank Jackson, the No. 32 player in the 2016 class, about his recent decommitment from BYU. Who are the new schools in the mix?

Frank Jackson, a 2016 lead guard out of Highland (Utah) Lone Peak, committed to BYU in September of 2013. But after some deliberation the 6-foot-3 combo guard recently opted to back off that pledge.

“I opened up my recruitment from BYU,” Jackson told Scout. “So I’m looking at five or six schools right now.”

Among the schools that Jackson is considering are BYU, Utah, Arizona, Arizona State, Standford, Duke and UCLA. To date, Jackson has taken unofficial visits to Arizona State, Stanford, BYU, Utah and UCLA.

Next up on Jackson’s visit list is Arizona.

“I think I’m supposed to go to Arizona soon, but I don’t know the date,” Jackson said.

Historically when a player decommits from a school they rarely re-pledge to the same school. However, Jackson, a four-star prospect on Scout, says it’s certainly a possibility.

“Of course,” he replied when asked if BYU still had a legitimate chance at getting him back. “I just thought I committed a little early. So BYU is definitely still in the mix.”

Jackson is currently ranked No. 32 overall and the No. 7 point guard in the 2016 class.
