FT. WAYNE, Ind. -- Jermyl Jackson-Wilson, a long 6-6, 200 pound small forward from Rufus King H.S. in Milwaukee, Wis., helped lead Marty McGlothan's Wisconsin DTA program into the Sweet 16 at this past weekend's Spiece Run N Slam Tournament.
Jackson-Wilson is a fine finisher in transition who slashes the baseline effectively on the offensive end. Thus far, he has seen interest from several colleges, including Pittsburgh, Marquette, Tulane, Wisconsin, Rider, Wisconsin-Green Bay, Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Northern Iowa.
While he does not have any offers on the table at this juncture, Jackson-Wilson's stock could improve with a fine summer. Like many high school kids, he plays the post in high school, but will probably play a bit more out on the wing at the college level.
This past season at King, he averaged 10 points, 10 rebounds and two blocks per game. Jackson-Wilson said he holds a 2.3 GPA and will take the ACT for the first time in June.
His summer plans include the adidas ABCD Camp in New Jersey as well as the adidas Big Time Tournament in Las Vegas. He also plans to attend the University of Illinois basketball camp next month.
