North Carolina made one other huge splash within the 2024 class on Monday. 5-star guard Ian Jackson, the No. 2 total participant within the class and No. 1 participant from New York, dedicated to the Tar Heels over a slew of different faculties that included Kentucky, LSU, Arkansas and Oregon.
Jackson is a 6-foot-4 taking pictures guard who turns into the highest-rated participant to commit within the 2024 cycle and the second top-10 expertise within the class to commit, becoming a member of fellow UNC commit and five-star Elliot Cadeau. Jackson visited Chapel Hill earlier in January, and that was apparently adequate for him to make his verbal pledge.
“Coach [Hubert] Davis is hoping I can are available and discover a spot much like Caleb Love,” Jackson stated, per 247Sports. “[He wants me to] be the man that is available in and scores the basketball. What stood out to me was how a lot of a household everyone seems to be there. The entire teaching workers performed there, so it was cool how all people is accustomed to this system and the tradition. It says rather a lot about UNC that every one the previous gamers and coaches come again to the varsity for his or her careers.”
North Carolina already had a star-studded incoming class for 2024 previous to Jackson’s dedication, however his verbal pledge locks down the No. 1 class within the workforce rankings for now. He’s the fourth top-50 dedication of the cycle, becoming a member of Cadeau and four-stars Drake Powell and James Brown.
