Kentucky trending for Isaiah Jackson

The Wildcats are coming on strong ahead of Jackson’s decision.

In a bit of a surprise, it’s Kentucky who’s trending heavily ahead of Jackson’s decision.

Corey Evans, Jerry Meyer, Eric Bossi and Andrew Slater have all logged predictions in favor of the Wildcats, who are now the leader in Jackson’s Crystal Ball and FutureCast.

We’ll know at 2:30 pm EST what the final decision is, but it sounds like Kentucky is in a great spot.

The Kentucky Wildcats will once again look to strike on the recruiting trail come Saturday night, but it won’t come without suspense.

Five-star forward Isaiah Jackson is set to choose between the Cats and the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday at 2:30 p.m.

The 6-9, 200-pound power forward from Waterford, Michigan, is ranked No. 25 overall by the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

While Jackson needs to add some weight to his frame, he is long and super athletic. He has a high motor and he’s excellent on the defensive end, but Jackson is a work-in-progress on offense. Despite his limited offensive repertoire, Jackson could be a multi-year guy with an extremely high ceiling.

As for who he will choose, that’s the question everyone’s asking. I can tell you the Syracuse Orange won’t be the choice. While I lean toward the Crimson Tide, I really have no idea which way this will go.

For some context, his crystal ball is currently 44% in favor of the Michigan State Spartans, a team Jackson isn’t even considering. National recruiting experts Jerry Meyer and Andrew Slater have both logged picks for Bama, but that seems more speculative than anything.

At this point, your guess is as good as anyone’s. So, let us know who you think Jackson will pick on Saturday afternoon.
