Duke and North Carolina are two finalists for 5-star forward G.G. Jackson, he announced on Friday.

Jackson is also considering Auburn, Georgetown, South Carolina and the NBA’s G-League Ignite program.

Here’s his announcement:


Jackson is an elite prospect in the class of 2023. He’s currently ranked No. 8 nationally, according to 247Sports Composite rankings.

He attends Ridge View High School in Columbia, South Carolina. The 5-star prospect is listed at 6-foot-9, 210 pounds.

Jackson would be a natural addition for either the Blue Devils or the Tar Heels.

Duke’s 2023 recruiting class already looks like it has a chance to be the No. 1 class nationally. The Blue Devils already have commitments from 5-star Caleb Foster and 4-star Sean Stewart. It’s still early, but the class currently ranks No. 1 nationally, according to 247Sports Composite rankings.

North Carolina is also recruiting very well in the class of 2023. The Tar Heels have a commitment from 5-star forward Simeon Wilcher out of New Jersey.

This will be an interesting battle to track throughout the offseason.
