Lonzo Ball, Markelle Fultz, Josh Jackson, and Jayson Tatum all have one thing in common. Their seasons are over.
The same can't be said for Justin Jackson, the talented forward out of Chapel Hill. With all the hype surrounding players like Ball and Fultz, Jackson continues to pad his resume with his outstanding tournament play.
The Junior has averaged 18.2 PPG and has proven he can guard the best of them. Jackson's defense has given opponents issues all year, especially Malik Monk, who shot 4-12 in the Elite Eight matchup.
At 6-8, Jackson has the size to play through the post. What makes such a good prospect is the fact that he has the handles, quickness, and shooting ability of a guard. Whichever team drafts Jackson, is getting an experienced player who spent three years under legendary coach Roy Williams.
Jackson is a player who has played in two national championships, he is used to succeeding, and has shown how great of a leader he can be.
In my opinion, Jackson is one of (if not the most) Pro-ready prospect in this year's class.
It's safe to say any team would love to have a player like Jackson on their team. While he has had an impressive tournament, Jackson is not done yet.
With a big performance against Gonzaga in the title game, Jackson could propel himself into the top 10.
