Garrett Jackson, 6-6 SR SF Portland (Ore.) Westview, is a very talented prospect who played exceptionally well during the second session of the July evaluation period. Jackson has a very good basketball body, nice athleticism and a solid shot to three-point range.

I asked Jackson recently about the schools that are recruiting him.

"Portland, Portland State, Santa Clara, San Diego and San Francisco have offered," said Jackson. "I've also been talking with Washington State."

I asked Jackson if any schools have emerged for him.

"No, I'm still wide open," said Jackson.

Jackson talked a little about the issues he'll consider when picking a school.

"I want a good relationship with the coaches and a winning program," said Jackson. "The location isn't really an issue."

Jackson said he has been to numerous schools on unofficial visits already.

"I've been to Oregon State, Oregon, Portland, Portland State and also to Santa Clara for their camp," said Jackson.

I asked Jackson if he has a time frame in mind to make his choice.

"I have no idea," said Jackson. "I have to sit down with my Mom, my coach and start to narrow things down."

Jackson said he currently has a 3.0 GPA.
