Jackson schedules official visit

Justin Jackson could be the next UNC commitment.

2014 top 20 prospect Justin Jackson has scheduled his first official visit, and a commitment could come right on the heel of the visit.

North Carolina has been considered the longtime leader for Justin Jackson of Spring (Texas) Homeschool Christian Youth Organization. A dream school of sorts for Jackson, the first issue was that North Carolina hadn’t offered yet. After they offered, the issue was that he hadn’t officially visited North Carolina yet.

Now, Jackson, a 6-8, 185-pound small forward, is scheduled to officially visit North Carolina the first weekend in March for the Florida State game.

Jackson is also considering offers from Arizona, Ohio State, Texas A&M, Virginia and Washington and has officially maintained all are equal.

Looking between the lines, however, North Carolina has to be considered a significant favorite.

North Carolina secured its first commitment from the 2014 class a week ago when point guard Joel Berry (No. 26 247Sports/No. 15 247Composite) committed after his official visit.

Jackson is the No. 19 ranked prospect by 247Sports and the No. 18 ranked prospect in the 247Composite.
