Jackson catapults North Carolina

Ohio State holds onto the top spot in the 2014 team recruiting rankings, but North Carolina has positioned itself right behind them with the addition of five-star prospect Justin Jackson.

Justin Jackson is a long wing scorer.

A smooth wing scorer at 6-8, Jackson joins top 25 ranked point guard Joel Berry in North Carolina’s 2014 class.

Ohio State has a strong three-man class led by top 20 prospect Keita Bates-Diop.

At No. 3, Louisville has practically an identical class to North Carolina with highly regarded wing scorer Shaqquan Aaron and point guard Quentin Snider.

Rounding out the top five are Syracuse and Kentucky, who have one five-star recruit each.
