No. 29 Jaren Jackson to Michigan State

One of the top power forward prospects in the country -- Jaren Jackson -- made a verbal pledge to Michigan State.

2017 recruit Jaren Jackson verbally committed to Michigan State on Thursday.

Jackson, a 6-foot-9, 210-pound power forward, selected the Spartans over Maryland, Purdue, Georgetown and Notre Dame. 

Jackson is regarded as the No. 29 overall prospect and the No. 5 power forward in the 2017 recruiting class. 

Through 21 games in the Nike EYBL, Jackson averaged 15.7 points and seven rebounds a game, while shooting nearly 40-percent from three on 81 attempts. 

This is Tom Izzo's first pledge of the class.
