2006 Focus: DeJon Jackson

DeJon Jackson's older brother Tyrone plays at Arizona State. DeJon is an interesting prospect in his own right and he's hearing from a number of schools in the west...

DeJon Jackson, 6-0 SR SG/PG Fresno (Calif.) Clovis West, is a solidly-built guard who might play the one or two spot. He's got a good shot to the stripe and sees the court well.

We spoke with Jackson recently and asked about the schools expressing interest in him.

"UC Irvine, UNLV, Fresno State, Pacific, UC Davis and St. Mary's," said Jackson. "I've talked to all of them on the phone."

While Jackson has yet to take any official visits, he has been to camps at Pacific and UC Irvine. He said he'll take his official visits after July.

When asked what he is looking for in a program, Jackson replied, "A school where I can play right away, that has a history of doing well. I'd like to stay in the western region."

Jackson said he has a 3.2 GPA.
