Jackson is listed at 6-foot-9 and is known as a skilled shooter and creator. However, this play indicates he might have plenty of athleticism upside, too.
He was recently named the No. 1 overall player in the country for the class of 2023, according to 247Sports Composite rankings.
Jackson is also helping North Carolina on the recruiting trail. Alongside fellow 5-star commit Simeon Wilcher, Jackson has been recruiting 5-star forward Matas Buzelis to the Tar Heels’ 2023 recruiting class.
UNC’s 2023 recruiting class currently ranks No. 2 nationally, per 247Sports Composite rankings.
