Jackson Might Need Juco Detour

Aiken resident Josh Jackson is probably going to meet a slight detour on his route to Division I basketball. Jackson tells us he's looking at a few options.

Juco Could Be Option For Jackson

Josh Jackson, a 250 pound center from South Carolina, has not taken any official visits yet but could do so in a few weeks. If he does, the College of Charleston is the likely recipient.

"I think I'm supposed to take one in three weeks," Jackson said. He also said that he's heard from the Cougars, South Carolina and Georgia. However, he does not have any offers to date.

Jackson said that he needs an academic boost. "I have to go to junior college for one year. I missed a lab and I missed one part of foreign language so they're telling me just one year."

Jackson further said that Hutchinson or Southwest in Texas are mentioned as possible junior college destinations.
