Headed into Justin Jackson's weekend visit to Chapel Hill, North Carolina was a prohibitive favorite.
After touring the campus over the weekend and catching the Tar Heels' win against ACC foe Florida State, the 6-foot-7 home-schooled small forward from Houston called it for the Heels on Monday night.
Jackson actually committed to Roy Williams during his visit, but he didn't make his announcement until Monday when he let the world know of his commitment via his Twitter account.
"We finished watching the game (Sunday afternoon) and actually ate with Coach (Williams)," Jackson, who was with his parents, told TarHeelIllustrated.com. "I told him yesterday that I wanted to commit to him. I told him that I was coming but wanted to wait until I got back here and talked with the rest of my family before I announced it publicly."
Currently a four-star prospect ranked No. 29 nationally in the 2014 Rivals150, Jackson is in line to make a move up the rankings and into five-star territory when they are updated next week.
He's a long wing who can shoot the ball from deep, has sneaky athleticism and will really get on the glass. He is still a bit lean, but Jackson has embraced the physical side of the game and is the owner of perhaps the best midrange game in the class of 2014.
Jackson is the second top 30 player from the class of 2014 to commit to Carolina after an early official visit. He joins current No. 22 Joel Berry, a four-star point guard from Orlando (Fla.) Lake Highland Prep.
