UConn men get 2015 commitment

Published February 04. 2014 4:00AM

UConn basketball coach Kevin Ollie's hard work on the recruiting trail is paying off.

Will Jackson, a 6-foot-4, 180-pound guard out of Athens Christian School in Georgia, reportedly gave the Huskies an oral commitment Monday night. OntheRadarHoops first broke the news on Twitter.

Ollie and assistant coach Karl Hobbs saw Jackson, a Class of 2015 recruit, play on Friday. Jackson also attended UConn's First Night festivities last fall.

Kansas, Georgia and Georgia Tech were among the schools showing interest in Jackson.

Jackson scored 30 points in Athens Christian's 90-37 win over George Walton Academy on Saturday. He is the second Class of 2015 guard to commit to UConn, joining 6-3 Prince Ali of The Sagemont School in Florida. Ali picked UConn in late November.
