Quentin Jackson, part of the 2016 class, has been a name familiar around the North Carolina, Virginia area for some time now.

But lately, programs such as Mississippi State, Rutgers, LSU, Ole Miss, UCF, and several others are making him a priority in their 2016 recruiting class, and why shouldn’t they.

Jackson is a 6’2 point guard that has tremendous skills with the ball in his hands. At Carlisle last season, Jackson averaged 17 points per game and was a force handling the ball. He can control the tempo and has the poise to lead a team, whether he needs to score the ball or find his teammates on the floor.

Jackson use to play for Word of God in Raleigh and he has played in several games in North Carolina, as recent as the HighSchoolOT tournament; so this is a chance to return to his home people and show off his game.

So what are programs liking about Jackson.

“I can play the 1 or the 2 and stretch the court with my length,” Jackson told Rivals. “They like my athleticism and playmaking ability.”

This weekend in Winston Salem, Jackson will be playing with SEBL, as you, a fan, can check out one of the fastest rising prospects around the area.
