Draft Notes

Jackson is a high-flying athlete who is one of the best leapers, dunkers and overall athletes in high school ball. He’s a menace in the open court, flies up and down the floor and finishes with the best of them.

He’s a capable ball handler who can break his man down with the dribble, but has more work to do in tightening up his handles.

Shows promise as a 3pt shooter.
