NBA DRAFT COMPARISON: KEMBA WALKER BUT BIGGER
PLAYER SUMMARY: Jackson is the leader of the Fighting Irish. He has improved significantly from his freshmen year and has played his way into being the 3rd best point guard prospect in the upcoming 2016 NBA Draft behind Kris Dunn and Jamal Murray.
While only 6’1″, Jackson has a well-developed body and possesses lightening quick speed. He is dynamite in the open court and his strong body allows him to finish at the rim, which often finishes in highlight reel dunks. The junior is a very solid shooter, which keeps defenses honest from his driving. Jackson is a ball-hawk on the defensive end and is a very fiery player.
His height will be a deterrent for some NBA teams. He has a tendency to overdo it and get out of control and is not a very good free-throw shooter. Jackson is steadily rising up NBA Draft boards with his excellent play. He reminds me very much of Kemba Walker when he entered the NBA, only Jackson is bigger. He is clearly the 3rd best point guard in this class and has a chance to end up being a lottery pick when all is said and done. He is a very good player with the chance to be a solid starter in the NBA.
