Five-Star PG Frank Jackson Commits To Duke Over Stanford, BYU

Five-star point guard Frank Jackson (American Fork, UT) has committed to the Duke Blue Devils over Stanford, BYU, Utah, Kansas, UCLA, and Arizona.

“When [Duke] offered me I was definitely eager,” Jackson told “It’s every kids dream to be able to play basketball for Coach K and be a Duke Blue Devil. Really when I was on that visit and in the room with Coach K I just kind of felt something and it felt completely right. It was the right decision for me. The history behind the school is amazing. They’ve had so much success. They’ve been a powerhouse for so many years now.

"Coach K is one of the greatest coaches of all time. Playing for him is a true honor. I’ve gotten to know him very well actually and he’s a man I respect very much. I’m going to put my trust in him and that’s what I’m doing right now. He’s going to make me a better basketball player and he’s going to get my body ready for the next level. I just think Duke is the best spot for me.”

Jackson made official visit to Duke this past weekend and official visit to Stanford at the beginning of July. The 6'3", 185-pounder committed to BYU early in his high school career, but decommited this past winter.

He played on the adidas circuit for the Utah Prospects this summer, and averaged 24 points, four rebounds, and 2.7 assists a game, as well as 26.9 points a game during his junior high school season at Lone Peak.

Jackson is ranked as the No. 4 point guard and No. 13 overall player in the class of 2016.
