Basketball Dawgs pick up first commitment for 2015 class

with 5 comments

According to the AJC’s Michael Carvell, Mark Fox nabbed his first official commitment for the 2015 class Monday afternoon in the form of local product William “Turtle” Jackson, a 6’4″ point guard from Athens Christian.

Don’t worry – the “turtle” nickname apparently doesn’t reference any of his athletic attributes.

Jackson’s high school coach at Athens Christian – Ron Link – described Will as the best player he had ever coached in his 45 years in the business.

Jackson had originally committed to UCONN, but he recently reopened his recruiting and changed his mind about the school when Connecticut received a verbal commitment from Jalen Adams of Ashbrunham, Massachussetts, a four-star point guard who is rated as the nation’s 6th best point guard prospect.

ESPN and Rivals both list Will Jackson as a three-star recruit.

The good news for Georgia fans is that it appears that Mark Fox has found a replacement for Charles Mann, who will be entering his golden years in Athens when the 2015-2016 campaign rolls around.

  2. This guy is a good one–and probably better than a 3-star.

  3. Lovin’ it….Any word on how Dusan Langura is progressing after the bomb incident last year?

  4. I talked with a high school BB junkie in Athens today who describes Turtle as a “Mann who can shoot from outside”. And let’s hope Langura is as good of an outside shot as advertised. In the college game, it is always nice to have several sweet shooters on the perimeter.
