Albany Academy’s Andre Jackson Should Have D-I Coaches Salivating
In what was Albany Academy's first home game of the high school basketball season, junior forward Andre Jackson put on a show; a high-flying aerial display that many of us knew he was capable of and many with Division I scholarships to offer will soon find out. Jackson already has an offer from Syracuse to join fellow Section Two'er Joseph Girard III.
Jackson caught alley-oops and slammed home missed shots with the athleticism and springs of highly-coveted high school player seemingly destined for stardom at the college level and beyond. I had one player, who is now on Division I scholarship, tell me last season he thinks Jackson has the talent to be a one-and-done.
In Albany Academy's blowout win over Bishop Ludden on Saturday afternoon, Jackson had 22 points and seven rebounds; substance to go with the absurd style of dunks in the highlight below.
