“It is just a beautiful campus,” said Jackson of Maryland. “I wanted to meet a lot of the players, but sadly most of them weren’t there and were at home. Still I loved the gym, the gym is one of the best I have seen. I really enjoyed my visit to Maryland.” One thing Jackson likes is how Maryland boss Mark Turgeon plans to use him. “Turgeon told me he would let me play my game and that I am the kind of guy he wants on his team,” said Jackson. Also Arizona has been making a very strong run at Jackson, and he has developed a close bond with Wildcat coach Sean Miller. “I love Arizona,” said Jackson. “Coach Miller and I have a lot of experience together with the U-19 team. We spent the whole month together and he is a great guy and a great coach.” He continued, “On my visit to Arizona it was a great experience. The coaches were nice and the campus was real nice. I just really liked it.” At this point Jackson says no other visits are planned, but he is hoping to set up official trips to Michigan State and Kansas. When it comes to the potential timing of a decision, Jackson said, “More than likely it will be a late decision, but who knows. I feel like whenever I know exactly where I want to go I will be ready to commit.”
