Canton (Ohio) McKinley small forward Ricky Jackson hasn't had much time to think about recruiting during the busy July basketball camp period.
"I'm ready to rest after this and high school season the whole month has been busy," the Class of 2006 member said. "It is good though. I'm glad to get a chance to show what I can do."
Cincinnati and North Carolina State are high on his list, Jackson said. Other schools recruiting him include Syracuse, Stanford, Michigan State and Ohio State.
Jackson had 12 points and three rebounds for All Ohio in a 78-65 loss to Team Florida Thursday morning at the Nike Peach Jam. His coach Tony Lavender said the school that lands Jackson will get a good one.
"He is just very tough and has a good heart," Lavender said. "He loves to play the game and loves to win."
Jackson said he is excited about getting into the recruiting process.
"I'm really just looking for a place to play where I can come in and help," said the 6-foot-6 forward. "I keep working on my game and try to do as much as I can from rebounding, playing defense to scoring."
What position could he play in college?
"He is probably a three right now," Lavender said. "If he works on his ball handling skills he could become a two. He has a nice 18 foot and can stroke it."
Jackson is ranked a three-star player by Rivals.com.
