Per Kentucky Sports Radio’s Jack Pilgrim, Jackson will make his announcement on ESPNU during halftime of the Montverde Academy and Sunrise Christian game — which is scheduled to begin at 3 pm ET.
Jackson’s talent is undeniable and his physical traits are what basketball scouts dream of. A decision to come play for Kentucky and head coach John Calipari would be tremendous news just two days after the Wildcats pulled off a massive road upset over the No. 5 Tennessee Volunteers.
So, where do you believe Ian Jackson will land? Sound off in the comments section and in the poll below!
