Jackson did not corroborate the report on his own Twitter feed, where his profile (as of this writing) still identifies him as “Virginia Tech MBB #1.” But it’s worth noting that Jackson doesn’t tweet very often (just 23 tweets, none since Dec. 6 2017).
Jackson, from Tift County H.S. in Tifton, GA, played in 28 games in 2017-18, after redshirting in 2016-17. He averaged 3.0 points per game in 7.2 minutes per game, with highs of nine points twice (Detroit Mercy, The Citadel) and 21 minutes (Detroit Mercy).
