High scoring guard Reggie Jackson made a splash over the July evaluation period playing for the Colorado Select travel squad. Five schools make up the list of Jackson, 6-foot-3, 170-pounds from Colorado Springs (Colo.) Palmer High School, and he is headed east today to visit an ACC school on the list.
Boston College hosts Jackson, the No. 111 ranked prospect in the Rivals150, on a mid-week official visit. Jackson is also coming off an unofficial trip to Wyoming, and he is expecting an in-home visit from Nevada.
Boston College, Wyoming and Nevada have all offered Jackson, and new comers to his recruitment Texas A&M and Marquette round out his list.
At this point Jackson is still open in his recruitment.
"I don't have any favorites and am open," said Jackson. "I'm a military child, so moving is nothing new to me. I wouldn't have a problem traveling anywhere to go to school."
The one stipulation Jackson does have is the position he will play in college. More of a natural scorer right now, Jackson wants to expand his game as a point guard at the next level.
"I definitely want to play point guard in college," he said. "The schools recruiting me see me as a scoring point guard."
As a junior Jackson averaged 22.4 points, 6.4 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 2.6 steals per game.
Reggie Jackson scouting report:
A combo guard with a scorer's mentality, Jackson can put up big numbers as a scorer. He also has the athleticism and skill to contribute in the other areas of the game. Although his scoring is what makes him special, Jackson can also run the point when needed.
