There isn't any shortage of players who claim to be dedicated on both ends of the floor. However, Demetrius Jackson is one who proves that dedication with his play.
A six-foot-one junior at Mishiwaka (Ind.) Marian, Jackson is one of the country's top two way players.
Ranked No. 61 in the country, Jackson is an athletic, quick and solid point guard who gets things done in the lane and at the rim. Almost too unselfish at times, Jackson has worked hard to become a much more dangerous jump shooter and looks to be finding the blend between getting others involved and generating his own offense.
On the defensive side, the four-star is one of the nation's premier on the ball defenders. He maximizes his quickness by sliding his feet, he has fast hands and bottom line he's determined to everything he can to keep the guy in front of him from scoring.
Last weekend, Rivals.com was able to watch him in action at the Bill Hensley Memorial in Ft. Wayne, Ind.. Even on a day that started off with him taking the SAT, Jackson looked sharp and improved in every aspect of the game.
