2016 Intro: Ohio Forward Willie Jackson
‘I think right now my ability to pass the rock off the dribble and get it to teammates is my biggest strength,” Willie Jackson told XOFan. “I need to continue to develop my ball handling plus work on creating my shot off the dribble. I think that would add versatility to my game.”
“Right now I’m hearing from Iowa, Ohio State, and Michigan,” Jackson said. I also like Duke and Kentucky and hope that my play at the Fab Frosh will let them know about me.”
“I really like Ohio State and Coach Matta,” Jackson continued. But, I’m looking hard at the Big Ten schools too.”
Willie Jackson can flat out grab the ball off the glass and start the break with a maturity rarely seen at this age, especially from a player who has been used as an inside the paint threat in middle school. But, he has put in the time, working on his own to become one of the most intriguing young forwards we’ve seen this spring. He has a solid jumper that he can stop and pop off the dribble inside the arc and a knack for finding open man if he gets double-teamed with ball in half court game. He is just scratching surface physically so watch for his stock to continue to rise as he adds strength and maturity to his frame.
We will continue to follow his play as he moves toward making his future college decision, right here at XOFan.com.
