The NBA Draft is next Thursday on ESPN and it looks like a stacked and loaded draft.  Our biggest focus here locally will be where Albany Academy product Andre Jackson Jr will get drafted.  He is currently projected to go very late first round or early second round according to most NBA experts and analysts.  Jackson is such a dynamic player and is super athletic.  He is 6'6 and makes all the right plays and the hustle plays too.  If he works on perfecting that jump shot, than he will be a very dangerous player.  He is a major reason why UConn was able to win a national championship.  Head coach Dan Hurley considered Jackson one of his team leaders both on and off the court and that is something that scouts and analysts do not ignore.

MJ and I were joined by CBS Sports College Basketball Analyst Clark Kellogg earlier this morning right here on Big Board Sports.  Clark was awesome and one of our bests guests of all time.  He was engaged and locked in which we always love.  He talked about Andre Jackson, the NBA Draft, the transfer portal, and March Madness brackets.  Below is our full interview with him.

I am eager to see where Andre Jackson Jr gets drafted in a week.  I have covered him for years and know how talented of a player he is and how awesome of a person he is.  He will absolutely have a successful NBA career there is no doubt about that.
