Maurice Jackson Drawing Interest

Maurice Jackson was relatively unknown heading into the summer. But the talented senior guard from Arizona played very well during the valuation period and he has numerous schools from the west recruiting him...

Maurice Jackson, 6-2 SR SG/PG Gilbert (Ariz.) High, gave us an update today on his recruitment.

"I've been getting calls from Iowa State, Portland, Northeastern, Wyoming, Santa Clara, Boise State and San Diego," said Jackson.

We asked Jackson if he has set up any official visits yet.

"No, I haven't set anything up yet," said Jackson. "I want to set one up with San Diego. I'm pretty sure I want to visit Santa Clara also."

When questioned about what he is looking for in a program, Jackson said, "I thought I would be more concerned with playing time. But now I'm looking more at academics. I also think I want to stay on the West Coast."

Jackson said he's not sure about the timing of his decision.

"I might sign in November, but that's not for sure," said Jackson. "I'll sit down with my Mom and talk about it." Jackson told us he has a 2.9 GPA.
