Andre Jackson, a four-star shooting prospect out of the 2020 recruiting class, will have an official visit with the Syracuse Orange this weekend. This news was relayed on Twitter by Stockrisers reporter Jake Weingarten, who also mentioned the young man is a major target for the school.
It’s certainly worth noting Jim Boeheim recently had an in-home visit with Jackson, which only highlights just how badly the Orange would like to land him.
The Alabama Crimson Tide recently offered the young man a scholarship, as well. It’s also worth noting that several other programs are after his services.
As for Andre Jackson, not only do most reputable recruiting service outlets have him pegged as a four-star caliber player, but most agree he’s one of the 40 (or so) best talents in the entire class. It is worth noting, though, a few prominent outlets do have him slotted as a five-star.
Time will obviously tell if the Syracuse Orange can land him. This push can only help.
