Jackson On The Verge of Decision

One of the more undervalued swingmen in high school basketball will announce his decision on Thursday. Memphis Fairley's Johnnie Jackson has trimmed his list, is checking it twice and will have an announcement real soon.

Press Conference At Noon

Memphis (TN) Fairley swingman Johnnie Jackson will announce for either Boston College, Providence, Michigan State, UMass, UAB or Arkansas State at a noon press conference at his school.

"Yes, sir I am committing tomorrow," a confident Jackson told TheInsidersHoops.com.

Just last weekend Jackson visited Boston College. He was at Providence earlier in the month. UAB recently came into his home. "All of the visits were nice and everything."

Jackson said he personally hasn't talked to Michigan State but thinks they've offered. In recruiting speak, that means don't expect the Spartans to be the pick because generally schools will talk with prospects close to decision time.

Jackson says he's basically reached a decision. "We are kind of finalizing it. (Mom) asks me if I am sure. We are going to sit down for the last time tonight and finalize it."
