Syracuse Basketball: 4-star target G.G. Jackson with blue-blood interest

Syracuse basketball 2023 prospect G.G. Jackson is on a recruiting roll.

Syracuse basketball may have proven the first to offer a scholarship to talented sophomore G.G. Jackson a few months back, but trust me, other high-major programs are taking notice as well.

His recruiting process likely has a long way to go, but the 6-foot-8 power forward is surely set to receive a ton of additional offers in the near future.

At this juncture, as we recently detailed, the four-star Jackson has offers from the Orange, along with former Big East Conference rival Georgetown, the SEC’s South Carolina and fellow Atlantic Coast Conference members Clemson, Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.

Additionally, and this could be a big-time development for Jackson, he is reportedly gaining interest from another ACC team in North Carolina, according to a tweet from recruiting guru Jake Weingarten, the founder of Stockrisers.com.

Syracuse basketball 2023 target G.G. Jackson has seven offers to date.

I reviewed Jackson’s bio on several of the primary recruiting Web sites, and I haven’t seen an official scholarship offer by the Tar Heels to Jackson, but it wouldn’t surprise me if he lands one from UNC at some point.

Not only is North Carolina a formidable recruiting foe for Syracuse basketball within the ACC ranks, but the Tar Heels are also a blue-blood program.

UNC’s reported interest in Jackson could take his recruitment to a whole new level and make things even more challenging for the ‘Cuse to secure this excellent 2023 prospect.

Syracuse basketball offered Jackson, a sophomore at Ridge View High School in Columbia, S.C., last August, and he has spoken highly about the Orange program, while alluding to the fact that the ‘Cuse was his first offer.

Described by recruiting analysts as an athletic and lengthy forward who shoots well from the outside and can score in the paint, Jackson is also praised for his defensive instincts and skills.

He is rated four stars and No. 29 nationally in the 2023 cycle by 247Sports, as well as No. 4 at power forward and the No. 2 player in the state of South Carolina.
