Arizona is locked in on Jackson

Sean Miller and Arizona have been a recruiting force recently, and they hope to continue that in 2016 with Josh Jackson.

There might not be a better player in the entire country than 2016 forward Josh Jackson. The do it all native of Detroit is one of the best athletes you will see and very skilled to go along with it. Head coach Sean Miller has Arizona in the thick of things in his recruitment.

Recently Jackson narrowed his list of schools down to Arizona, Louisville, North Carolina, NC State, Duke, UCLA, Kansas, Michigan State, and Kentucky. Now however that list has expanded by one.

“I actually have 10 schools now,” said Jackson. “I don’t know what I was thinking not putting Auburn in there. Those 10 schools I think all would be a great fit for me, and I don’t think any school that I choose to go to I would regret.”

Arizona is on the list because of the strong relationship he and his mom are developing with the coaching staff, and the relentless work they have put in recruiting him.

“It has been a great relationship,” said Jackson of Arizona. “I love Coach (Sean) Miller and Coach (Joe) Pasternack, they are great guys. What I love about Arizona is that they bring in talented guys and make them better. The year before last they were undefeated for a long time.”

He continued about the Wildcats, “Coach Miller clearly knows what he is doing out there. It seems like a situation that I would definitely like to be a part of.”

From here Jackson knows that he will have to narrow down his list from 10 to 1, but he also knows that will not be an easy process.

“I have no idea how we narrow it down further,” said Jackson. “Again I don’t feel like I would regret going to any of those 10 schools. They all seem like they would be great schools, but now I just need to figure out which one will be the best for me.”

In terms of what he is going to look for in a school, Jackson said, “I just want to go to a school where the coaches would care about me and the team, and a place where I can win a national championship.”

Currently Jackson ranks as the No. 2 overall prospect in the class of 2016.
