2009-10 Schedule :: Columbus Dispatch



  1. This kid should be a Buckeye! Coach Matta needs to recruit him!

  2. The Columbus Dispatch's PrepCast contributors labeled Jackson "an absolute monster" after watching him in person recently, noting that his team often just clears out and lets Jackson take over by getting to the hoop.

  3. Man he ain't got no game.

  4. Jackson took his unofficial visit to Arizona State the last week of April and missed a number of early AAU games due to an ankle injury.

  5. Recently switched from the loaded All-Ohio Red program to the West Virginia Wildcats AAU team.
