Jackson, Ardmore (OK) HS off to fast start

A great point guard is tough to stop at any level of basketball, so it should come as no surprise that the Ardmore (OK) High School Tigers are off to an impressive 3-0 start to the 2010-2011 season.

They do, after all, have one of the nation's top junior point guards at their disposal in the lightning quick Nino Jackson. Known for his ability to attack the rim, Scout.com's No. 56 prospect in the Class of 2012 said things are going smoothly on the court thus far.

"It's real easy this year, getting my teammates involved," Jackson said. "Everything is going good so far."

A hot commodity on the recruiting trail, the 5-foot-11 point guard currently holds offers from Kansas, Baylor, Missouri, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Southern Methodist and Texas, with interest flowing in from the likes of North Carolina, Illinois, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Iowa and Tennessee.

In August, Jackson told Phog.net that he was essentially down to the Jayhawks and the Sooners, and as of right now it appears that hasn't changed.

Neither has his timeframe for a decision, which he hopes to make in the early spring, at the end of the current high school season.

No hard and fast plans have been made for unofficial visits, but Jackson said he does hope to make it up to Lawrence, Kan. to take in a game. He visited campus most recently during the program's "Late Night in the Phog" season-opening festivities in October.

"I know I'm going to try and get to a (Kansas) home game," he said. "I was talking to the (Morris) Twins, and they told me I should get to a home game."
