Justin Jackson Recruiting Update


Five-star small forward recruit Justin Jackson is one of the top ten recruits in the 2014 recruiting class, and he has drawn some interest from the Kansa Jayhawks. He is an incredibly talented small forward and is one of the three most talented players at his position.

Justin Jackson is 6’6″ and weighs in at 171 pounds, and the swingman hails from Houston, Texas. Jackson is the second best basketball player in the state of Texas for the 2014 class and is the second best recruit in the region.

Baylor, Georgetown, Ohio State (coach Thad Matta), Oklahoma, Texas, Texas A&M, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Washington have all offered Justin Jackson.

Teams interested in Jackson include Duke, Florida, Kansas, Marquette, and UNC. All the big programs are going after this supremely talented SF who can also play SG, and it’s no surprise given that he is a bona fide five-star recruit.

The HCYA recruit’s AAU team is the Houston Hoops, and he has certainly shown why he is one of the best recruits at his position and a top ten recruit overall. Justin Jackson is a great wing player with one of the best jumpshots in this class, and he has elite scoring ability. There is no doubt that Jackson is going to be a good starter at the collegiate level, and he has the potential to be a top 20 player in college.

Teams such as UNC are looking closely at him, and he is definitely one of the best recruits to come out of Texas in the past couple of years. Jackson has the total package and has elite potential, and we’ll see which teams offer, visit, or join the recruitment going forward; keep an eye on Michigan.

Overall, Justin Jackson is a difference-marker as a recruit, and he has a Scout Grade of 97 from ESPN. All those big schools are going hard after him, and we’ll see if Kansas decides to offer the top tier 2014 recruit.
