Jackson is a 6’3″ playmaker in the class of 2020. We recently caught up with Jordan Jackson and talked about his game, next season, and more.
What is the biggest strength of your game?
Scoring, I’ve always had a knack for being able to put the ball in the hoop, whether it’s off the dribble, coming around screens, or in transition. I’m also a really good playmaker and love getting my teammates involved as well.
How have you been preparing for this season?
A lot of late nights in the gym with my Grandad, trying to be a student of the game. Hundreds of shots almost every night since September. Just making sure my body is right and that I’m eating good so that I’m in the best shape I can be in. Also making sure Im spending as much time as I can with my teammates, who are now like my brothers.
What goals do you have for this season?
I want to win a state championship and get better with my brothers. I also want to try and pick up my first offer, that would be great.
Is there a game on your schedule that you are looking forward to?
I’m looking forward to every game, but especially when we play Detroit Country Day at the Union Classic in February, only because I know it will be a big crowd.
What is your best basketball memory so far?
My best basketball memory has got to be being cut from Greenwood Elite after the spring session ended. It motivated me work harder than ever and made me a way better player. The situation made me way tougher. (No disrespect to Greenwood and their program, all love.)
Who is the toughest player you’ve ever matched up with?
The toughest player I ever matched up against was Duane Washington. Bro killed me when we had the open run at Godwin.
What aspect of your game would you tell a college coach about that’s interested in you?
I would tell that college coach about my versatility and athleticism on offense and defense.
What is your favorite subject at school and why?
8. My favorite subject has got to be Economics because it’s so easy to understand .
