I like the way this is trending...Dre will be one of the better athletes we have had in awhile. Has time to work on his shot and we will have him surrounded with shooters so he can do some slashing. Definitely a very exciting player that can bring the house down...also landing pretty much the top dog in NY never hurts.
Would be a great get, exactly what this current team could use.

Four guys have made predictions in the last couple days and these are guys who are 100% correct for the year. Of course that means nothing except that it feels like it is getting real close.
Things can obviously change but right now August 13 can’t help but feel pretty good.

I love keeping a local kid and he is over the top athletically but i have seen him a couple of times and his shot was not good. Modern day Stevie Thompson's may not be the moniker someone wants for today's game. He has the total skill set except the one I want most in all our recruits...shooting.

we have the shooting with others on the team. It wont hurt nearly as much as it would in other years.

One thing we're not going to lack when he gets into college are shooters around him. He'll be fine

A kid like Jackson is a PERFECT fit. Yes, we love shooters and are recruiting more and more. But we don’t need all shooters on the court. He’ll give us another look being an athletic slasher which with the shooters we have opens up a lot. The shooters will provide him room to operate going inside because teams can’t collapse. And his skills and threat to drive to the basket opens things up a little for the shooters. It’s a win win. Not to mention he’s long and supposed to be a great defender.

Also a good passer from the 2/3 spot. He will average 3-4 dimes a game just kicking it out to shooters..add in what he does in the open floor and this is a perfect fit.

The sad thing is that you could plug in any name from UNC going back five seasons and have the statement still be true.
I remember easily beating them in 2014 and thinking that after the past 5 years(blowing them out in ‘09-‘10 and going 30-5, 34-3, final four, 25-0 start) we had clearly surpassed them as a program, and they were in our rear view mirror as we would battle Duke for ACC supremacy in the coming years.

Jerami Grant no shot but athleticism and it worked out great. I know Grant was a 3/4 and Jackson is a 2/3 but now that we have a shooter in Edwards at the 5 that can spread the floor along with JG3 and buddy Jackson will have several driving lanes.
