The Connecticut Huskies made a significant addition on Friday night, as they garnered a commitment from 6′-7″ wing forward Vance Jackson of Prolific Prep (CA). Jackson picked UConn over a program local to his high school, California.
Jackson is one of the best wing forwards on the west coast, and could actually join a former high school teammate in Daniel Hamilton when arrives to campus in Storrs. Like Hamilton, scoring is Jackson’s forte as he utilizes his size and strong shooting ability.
With the addition of Jackson, UConn now has three top-50 caliber players in the fray for the 2016 recruiting cycle. Jackson joins standout point guard Alterique Gilbert and currently injured post player Juwan Durham, along with paint protector Mamadou Diarra in what continues a trend of outstanding recruit by head coach Kevin Ollie after taking over at UConn.
