Scouting Profile

STRENGTHS -Good height for a wing at 6' 7.75” -Impressive athlete. Excellent in transition with or without the ball. Explosive leaper in space. -Strong straight-line slasher. Fairly long strides with good body control. Doesn't have the tightest handle but he can play with the ball. -Shows strong court vision both in the half court and transition. Not a selfish player. -Active cutter. Moves without the ball. -Doesn't shy away from contact around the rim. -Plays with toughness. Likes to compete. Excellent rebounder for his position. -Very willing defender. Can chase shooters. Good feet on the ball. Takes on the challenge of stopping his man. Impressive instincts and anticipation off the ball. WEAKNESSES -Doesn't have elite length relative to his height – 6' 9.75” wingspan. -Hasn't added much strength over the past year and a half. Doesn't have the widest frame. -Funky shooting stroke. Relies on elevation, big dip of the ball. More comfortable shooting off the dribble than the catch. Limits his scoring in the half court. -Comfortable with the ball but doesn't have the tightest handle. -Can get a bit wild. Takes contested pull ups early in the clock. -Emotional player who can be very outwardly demonstrative with his teammates at times OUTLOOK Jackson arrived late and missed about half of the practices (finishing up academic work) but was still able to make his presence felt. While he's not the most polished offensive player, Jackson's explosiveness, potential as a passer, defense, and toughness on the glass were all on display. For Jackson to maximize his potential and be seen by NBA executives as a future top draft pick he'll have to continue making strides as a jump shooter while finding more ways to score in the half court.
