Josh Jackson - Detroit Consortium
- Wt:180 lbs
- Class:2016 (High School)
Josh Jackson out of Consortium HS in Detroit, class of 2016, is going to be the most hotly contested Bball prodigy out of Michigan since? I don't know the answer to this question, he is only in 9th grade, but I can't remember a 9th grader this talented and polished in a long long time.
I've posted before, I was fortunate enough to see Mark Macon as a 9th grader at Saginaw Buena Vista, and thought his talent level was jaw dropping. I watch Josh Jackson play basketball and I see jaw dropping talent.
I saw Chris Webber as a 9th grade, Shane Battier as a 9th grader and this kid is right up there with them.
This is going to be a recruiting battle you can be sure the Kentucky's and North Carolina's will be involved in
The kid would be perfect in Coach Beilein's offense. Smooth as silk, make the game look easy, nice mid range game, superior handle, you can tell he is just toying with some of the competition. Hell, he'd be great in any offense, even Wisconsin.
Jackson recently put up 23 in a close loss to Romulus (#2 in Class A), and followed that up with a 30 point effort in a win against 13-2 L'Anse Creuse North.
“Can you name 10 players better than him in the state? He’s the top five or 10 in the state, period, regardless of Class.”
-- Romulus coach Nate Oats talking about Detroit Consortium freshman Joshua Jackson. Jackson scored 23 points and grabbed eight rebounds in the loss to Romulus.
I will post a couple video's in the first post of Josh Jackson doing his thing.
Try to keep in mind: 9th grader
