Josh Jackson has a chance to be a special KU freshman

DECEMBER 2016 Josh Jackson has heard the hosannas and rave reviews since he began tearing up the AAU, USA Basketball, and high school scene. Jackson, a 6-8 Kansas guard, was rated the No. 1 player in the 2016 class and named co-MVP of the McDonald’s All-American game while averaging 26.9 points, 13.1 rebounds and 6.3 assists per game at Prolific Prep in Napa, California, in 2015-16.

KU coach Bill Self was the latest to magnify the hype when he signed Josh Jackson last May after a long and intense recruiting battle in which the Detroit native chose the Jayhawks over Michigan State and Arizona, which immediately lifted Kansas into a sexy Final Four pick.
