Jackson transferred before the high school year began from Xaverian High School to Boys & Girls High School in Brooklyn, New York. The Kangaroos recently won a game in the Big Apple event held at Baruch College.
However, Jackson didn't play due to an ankle injury. It was described by the Boys & Girls coaching staff as badly sprained.
But when he does recover properly, it will give head coach Ruth Lovelace another weapon on a team that is loaded with several division one prospects.
In the game I watched, Boys & Girls clobbered Queen of Peace High School, 63-44. The Kangaroos will need a healthy Patrick Jackson to make an attempt to win a PSAL championship.
Over the summer, Jackson's confidence accelerated and he looked comfortable in the low post grabbing rebounds and shooting perimeter shots. He showed a consistent and balanced floor game.
It's why he got several offers and why many in the area believe he will have a solid Big East career. First, he needs to get healthy.
