Jackson Decides On HS & Will Take RU Visit

Reporter Brian Towey has an update on Patrick Jackson and his situation ...

Following a pair of former teammates, 6-foot-6 rising senior Patrick Jackson of Xaverian High School has decided to transfer across Brooklyn to Boys and Girls High School.

"I made up my mind last week," said Jackson. "A couple of my ex-teammates are there, and we're pretty close. I think it will be a better situation for me."

Jackson follows David Imes and Zamal Nixon, both of whom transferred from Xaverian last fall to the PSAL program. Nixon will attend the University of Houston for this year after leading the Kangaroos to the PSAL City Championship game in March, while Imes returns to Boys for his fourth year.

According to Jackson, Brandon Romain, another former Xaverian player who was kicked off of the team late last season, will also be transferring to the school.

Jackson attended D.C.-area power DeMatha (Md.) High School as a freshman before spending his sophomore and junior years at Xaverian.

Jackson recently cut his list of schools to six: Seton Hall, Rutgers, Iowa St., St. John's, Colorado, and Houston, and claims offers from every school. Jackson is currently visiting his mother in Maryland and will take an unofficial visit upon his return.

"I'm going to take an unofficial visit to Rutgers next week when I get back from Maryland," said Jackson. "During the school year I'm going to set up the official visits.

"I'm not leaning any way. I just want to weigh my options, take some visits, and get to know the coaching staffs. I don't have a timetable for my decision."
