Jackson down to ten

One of the nation's top 2016 point guards, Frank Jackson narrowed his school list on Tuesday.

It's been an extremely impressive spring for 2016 Highland (Utah) Lone Peak point guard Frank Jackson, whose play with the Utah Prospects has helped catapult his stock amongst the top players at his position nationally in the class.

The 6-foot-3, 185-pound point guard's recruitment has picked up accordingly, and on Tuesday he chose to narrow down his list down to 10.

According to Utah Prospects coach Tim Davis, Jackson is down to Arizona, BYU, Duke, Embry-Riddle, Maryland, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Stanford, UCLA and Utah.

Embry-Riddle is where Jackson's father played college basketball, while Maryland, North Carolina and Notre Dame are new additions to Jackson's list.

Davis broke down Jackson's new schools.

Maryland: "His mom and dad are from that area so that's appealing to him. He's been talking to their assistants and coach (Mark) Turgeon went to a couple of his games and they offered him today."

North Carolina: "Coach (Roy) Williams came to watch him as well as Hubert Davis and (C.B.) McGrath. They had everyone come see him. It's North Carolina; he's obviously interested."

Notre Dame: "Mike Brey has been highly recommended to Frank by a lot of people and he wants to go to a situation where it's great basketball and a great coach."

Jackson plans on using the month of June to see several of the schools on his list.

"Frank is going to visit North Carolina, Maryland and Duke when he goes to Virginia for the NBPA Top 100 Camp," Davis said.

"He'll fly right after that and go on an official visit to Stanford. They're trying to figure out a visit to Arizona in May or June; it just depends on camps."

It won't take too long after the summer for Jackson to make a decision.

"He'll make a decision before high school basketball season," said Davis. "He wants to focus on that. It could be earlier, but definitely no later."
