Josh Jackson SF 6-8 207 Kansas
Jackson made the most of his one season in Lawrence, earning big 12 freshman of the year honors and was also a first team all-conference selection. The 20-year old’s defense will make him a contributor right away in the NBA, as he can guard four of the five positions on the court. Offensively, Jackson can attack the basket, and his long range jumper improved throughout his freshman campaign. The biggest issue holding Jackson back may be off-the court, after he allegedly made threats to a woman in December and is now in a diversion program for damaging her car. As Jackson now heads to the NBA, his baggage is a little heavier than other prospects in the draft.
