Draft Notes

G.G. Jackson is a late edition to the 2022 recruiting class after re-classifying mid summer. He’s a likely one and done lottery pick and the most talented prospect to play at South Carolina in recorded memory.

Jackson is a force on the offensive end, able to do it all with the ball in his hands. He’s simply too explosive, powerful, fast and agile for opposing forwards to handle. He’s deadly from mid range, has range out to 3 and can take his man off the dribble.

While he might not have plus size for his position his combination of size, length and explosive ability make him an absolute problem on the court.

Skilled at finishing with either hand.

Plays ways above the rim.
