Miami hosted 2023 4 star guard Elmarko Jackson from Richland, New Jersey over the weekend. The 6’3 guard has has seen his stock rise of late, he recently shot up from a border top 100 recruit to a top 40 recruit across most major recruiting services.
Although he is a great playmaker, what really sticks out to me are his scoring ability and his defensive intensity. He thrives in transition and can finish through contact using both hands. Jackson has an elite ability to create space to get a jumper off and has a lethal step-back jumpshot. Defensively, his lacrosse background really shows through with the physicality and toughness he plays with. Jackson has the potential to be one of the best two-way players out of this recruiting class, he would be a huge get for Miami.
