Jackson out, Cousins still in

Rivals150 shooting guard Tamir Jackson is no longer committed to UAB, but elite 2009 prospect DeMarcus Cousins is steadfast in his commitment to the Blazers.
"I made the decision today to decommit," said Jackson, 6-foot-2, 165-pound out of Newark (N.J.) St. Benedict's High School. "I just haven't had any communication with the head coach, and I feel that I rushed my decision."
UAB presently has commitments from three other shooting guards.

Jackson, who is the No. 137 ranked prospect in the Rivals150, is looking at Rice and Davidson along with schools who were recruiting him before his recruitment which include Miami, Virginia Tech, Arizona, Rhode Island, Providence, Seton Hall, St. John's and Clemson.
With rumors from unnamed sources circulating that Cousins as well is also planning to decommit from UAB were shot down by both Cousins and his high school coach Otis Hughley. Both maintain that Cousins is still 100 percent committed to Mike Davis and the Blazers.
