2013 high school PG Demetrius Jackson commits to Notre Dame
 
Notre Dame landed the No. 4 point guard in the Class of 2013 on Thursday when Demetrius Jackson (Mishawaka, Ind./Marian Catholic), the No. 19 overall prospect in the ESPN 100, picked the Irish over Illinois.

Jackson grew up 20 minutes from Notre Dame's campus in South Bend, Ind. The Irish locked in on him and made the local standout their top priority. His commitment moves Notre Dame to No. 5 in the 2013 basketball recruiting class rankings.

Jackson is a physically powerful 6-1 playmaker, listed at 170 pounds but owning the muscle to get the ball through traffic to the rim. He has the change-of-speed game evident in the best point guards, although his experience playing primarily with less talented teammates might cause him to need an adjustment period to focusing on distribution as a collegian.

Told you he was going to Illinois.

He's also gotten fairly overrated. Not as much as Mitch McGary, but same deal. If Illinois didn't need a PG quick it wouldn't be much of a loss. Jackson should be down in the 80s nationally more than the should be up in the top 20 or whatever he is.

Keep trying to "steal" Bates-Dip from Purdue and if you get him you're in infinitely better shape. We'll also have problems and I'll neg all of you. Kendrick Nunn's a really nice get though. A great get in-state kid and doing all he can to make Illinois an actual ILLINOIS school, kids like that go a long way.

Just quit ****ing with the Wolves.

I have a feeling all the big boys are coming for Bates Diop. He's going to be a tough get. Hopefully Xavier Rathan Mayes does not follow in his Dad's footsteps to FSU and comes to Illinois.
