DeJon Jackson Has Top Four

DeJon Jackson is hearing from schools in the Big West, WCC and WAC...

DeJon Jackson, 6-0 SR PG/SG Fresno (Calif.) Clovis West, is a talented prospect who might play at either guard spot in college.

We spoke with Jackson yesterday and he told us that four schools are involved in his recruitment.

"Santa Clara, UC Irvine, Pacific and Fresno State are the ones I've been hearing from," said Jackson.

When asked if any schools lead, Jackson said, "I'm wide open, but UOP and Fresno State are maybe a little ahead."

Jackson has in-home visits scheduled with all four schools, but he has yet to set up any official visits.

We asked if he planned on signing in the fall or spring and Jackson replied, "I'm really not sure yet."

Jackson listed some of the factors he'll consider when choosing a school. "Someplace that gives me a chance to play, where the team has a history of doing well and that offers a good education."

Jackson said he's open to going anywhere, but he'd prefer to remain in the west.
