The visit to College Park was Jackson’s (6’7″ 185) first time seeing the Maryland campus, and he came away very impressed with what he saw.
His first step is lightning quick and will serve him well for his entire career. He blows past defenders and possesses top-shelf bounce and body control at the rim, resulting in acrobatic finishes and old fashioned and-ones. Meanwhile, he’s also a devastating player in the open court who can take shots under control despite dribbling at full speed. His jump shot is streaky but capable, and he should be able to become more consistent over time.
“It is just a beautiful campus,” said Jackson of Maryland. “I wanted to meet a lot of the players, but sadly most of them weren’t there and were at home. Still I loved the gym, the gym is one of the best I have seen. I really enjoyed my visit to Maryland.” One thing Jackson likes is how Maryland boss Mark Turgeon plans to use him. “Turgeon told me he would let me play my game and that I am the kind of guy he wants on his team,” said Jackson. Also Arizona has been making a very strong run at Jackson, and he has developed a close bond with Wildcat coach Sean Miller. “I love Arizona,” said Jackson. “Coach Miller and I have a lot of experience together with the U-19 team. We spent the whole month together and he is a great guy and a great coach.” He continued, “On my visit to Arizona it was a great experience. The coaches were nice and the campus was real nice. I just really liked it.”
