Decision Coming This Week for Prized Recruit Andre Jackson
Over the summer, Andre Jackson told NewsChannel 13 that he was targeting a decision before his senior basketball season started at Albany Academy and now that day is upon us.
Jackson had narrowed his choices down to five schools: Syracuse, UConn, UCLA, Iowa and Maryland. The 6'6" swingman is a supreme athletic talent whose jumpshot has a come a long way in the last year. Jackson admitted that was the biggest hole in his game. His athleticism is no longer raw; in addition to jumping through the roof, he's a strong rebounder and underrated passer.
There is heavy speculation that this decision is coming a little sooner than some thought and that may point to UConn being the choice. Jackson took his official visit to the Huskies a couple of weekends ago.
Wednesday afternoon, Jackson will make his decision known during a ceremony at Albany Academy. Stay tuned here for all the news.
