As one of the top prospects in the Class of 2016, 6-foot-6 shooting guard Josh Jackson has been on the receiving end of recruiting pitches from many of the top programs in the country. Yet after excelling as a sophomore at Consortium Prep in Detroit last season, Jackson and his family decided that a change in scenery was needed.
It was announced a couple weeks ago that Jackson would spend his junior year of high school in California, and on Thursday the school was officially revealed.
Jackson announced via YouTube that he’ll be attending Justin Siena High School in Napa, California, about 60 miles to the southwest of Sacramento. The basketball program has been successful, most recently winning league championships in three of the last four seasons under head coach Mike Boles.
Among the colleges that have offered Jackson to this point are Kansas, Louisville, Memphis and Ohio State according to Rivals.com.
