Video: Demetrius Jackson Highlights at adidas Invitational

  • 07/11/2011 12:47 pm in

2013 Mishawaka Marian and MBA Select point guard Demetrius Jackson holds offers from Michigan and Xavier and is attracting interest from several other high-major schools including Illinois, Indiana, Michigan State and Notre Dame.

Watch over two minutes of Jackson from a pool play game at last week’s adidas Invitational in the embedded media player below. (Note: You can expand the video to full screen by using the arrows in the bottom right hand corner of the player.)

    I’m intrigued as to how the 2013 point guard situation will shake out.  Seems like CTC is talking to quite a few kids at that position.

    I feel the same way about Demetrius as I did about Jeremy Hollowell before he signed…I really want him and would consider us lucky if he chose Indiana.  I thought Jeremy would explode if he addressed the motor concerns everyone mentions.  I saw Jeremy play several times and agreed with the knock.  Jeremy fixed the motor perception this summer and may end up a 5 star guy.  Demetrius for his age plays a D-Wade style of game although the highlights are all of him attacking the defense.  He goes to a good school, will assume he’s an ok or better student, is from Indiana, and appears hardnosed.  He would be a perfect addition to Hartman and Davis for the 2013 class assuming Yogi will depart early for the NBA.

    Very talented. Gut feeling says he is going to Michigan though.

    Has a nice handle, jumper a little shaky.

    After looking through all of the ITH prospect vids, I have to say I am officially more excited about Jeremy Hollowell than anyone coming in after Cody. No one looks more prepared for the college game IMO.

    He can spot up, pull up, drive with authority, plays with his back to the basket, rebounds. The defense will come. All of this talk about his hunger, emotions etc, I could care less. He will be just fine.

    I like Yogi very much and think we are incredibly fortunate to have him.  He likely will be one of the more important pieces in us coming back.  However, I highly doubt he leaves early for the NBA.  Check and see how many guys are in the NBA at or near 6′.  Its very few.  Not saying he can’t do it but you have to be unreal.  Like damn near player of the year good (i.e. Kemba Walker or Jameer Nelson).  This selfishly plays to our benefit if we were to have a 5 star pg for 4 years tho.

    He reminds me of Jamal Crawford.

    I think the real question boils down to which point guard from 2013 will be okay with coming off the bench for Yogi for 3 years.

    Looks like a pretty solid player.  I agree it will be tough to get a top flight kid to come in and most likely be back up to Yogi.  It happens though.  Villanova seemed to sign a 4 or 5 star PG every year there for awhile.

    I’d think 2014 would be a more important year for a point guard – I’d be more on the look out for a bigger body in 2013…Cody and Hanner’s position will probably need filled quicker.  With that said I still wouldn’t complain if Jackson heads to bloomington

    That’s probably because in Villanova starts 3 or 4 PGs every game. It’s the “Coleman Tent” offense–one tall pole in the middle surrounded by 4 spikes.

    I am a believer that much like starting pitchers in baseball, you can never have too many high level PGs.  At a minimum, we need two strong PGs.  They don’t have to be scoring PGs, but two strong PGs on the roster at all times.  Personally, I’d rather have three, but that sometimes is a luxury that is unaffordable or unavailable. 

    Yogi is obviously going to be a star at IU, but that doesn’t mean we should neglect to fill out this position during his time at IU, no matter how long or brief it may be. 

    I think Jackson would be a great addition to the roster.  At the very least, he provides a quality backup option at PG.  At the best, he ends up being a player that CTC realizes he wants on the floor far more often than he wants to sit next to him, and we have one of the fastest, best ball-handling backcourts in the Big Ten.
