Jackson’s stock has soared in the past year and is expected to continue to rise beyond his current ranking as the No. 8 overall prospect in the 2023 class by 247Sports. He will choose from between five finalists: Duke, UNC, South Carolina, Auburn, and Georgetown.

Jackson averaged 22.1 points and 10.9 rebounds, 2.5 blocks, 1.2 assists, and 1.0 steals per game this past season, leading Ridge View to its first Class 5A state title, and he was named the South Carolina Gatorade Player of the Year.

UNC, which has made Jackson its top recruiting priority for the last year, is hoping to add him to a 2023 recruiting class that already features Top 20 guard Simeon Wilcher.
