Didn't want to thread jack the other thread, but 2020 shooting guard Zeb Jackson out of Maumee, Ohio is set to announce on Tuesday. CBs have Michigan at 80% with the other two going CBs going to OSU and Butler (but they were made a while ago).

He's 6'2, 160lbs and the #66 ranked player in the country on 247. Link to profile

Looks like Matt D called him a PG.  Anybody have any insight into what we are recruiting him as?  Seems like he would have great size for a PG but maybe lack the length Beilein seems to prefer at the wing.

The staff views Zeb as an on-ball guard (can be a traditional PG or moreso the Caris mold where he's not necessarily a traditional PG but facilitates the offense in half court sets). Coach Beilein prefers an interchangeable lineup with most players ranging between 6'4 and 6'8 with similar skillsets and positional flexibility. This falls in line with that, as Jackson is a legit 6'2-6'3 with good length and athleticism. Definitely has  prototype size for a point guard/lead guard.
