Draft Notes

Elmarko Jackson is a tough, strong, compact and powerful lead guard who plays both ends of the floor and has all of the leadership and intangible qualities you look for in a point guard.

Plays with a good balance of scoring and passing. Has excellent court vision and knows his role as a facilitator, while also being able to put pressure on the defense with his ability to get to the rim and hit the outside shot.

A creative finisher in the lane who can score against length, using his strong frame to absorb contact.

A tough defender who gets after it on defense. Plays with an edge – a former lacrosse player who doesn’t shy away from contact.
