The 6-foot-8 power forward from Montverde Academy says he has been having a strong summer basketball wise and has seen his recruitment pick up.
Missouri and Cincinnati, Jackson said about which schools were his favorites. Missouri likes to run a lot on the court and I really like their coaches. Cincinnati is a good school in the Big East and I like their coaches a lot too.
One of the major things that will influence his decision is the tempo that the program runs. He is very interested in a program that installs a fast tempo offense because he thinks it complements his skills the best.
I can really run, he said. I'm a fast pace player and that's what I'm looking for in a school.
The Florida native anticipates making a decision in October, but only after he has visited his two favorites, as well as Maryland and Miami. Jackson really likes both of those schools for similar reasons.
I really like the team chemistry with both teams, he stated. Both have great coaches and both of them talk to me a lot. I know that both coaches would have my back.
Right now he says he is mostly just working on improving his dribbling and shooting to become a more well-rounded player.
I'm taking a lot of shots in practice and working on trying to dribble through traffic, he said. It's my senior year so I will do anything it takes to win.
