Oklahoma City Thunder Round 1: Pick 24

Strengths:

  * Great athlete with leaping ability and quick first step
  * Good shooter from the field, three and free throw line
  * Huge wingspan
  * Good rebounder for his position

Weaknesses:

  * Is he a point or shooting guard?

NBA projection:
Jackson will be a first-round draft pick and a guy who, as he develops, will have the ability to impact games with his athletic ability, shooting touch and length. He has all the physical skills required; his decision making and shot selection will be the keys to his progress.

2010-11 Season:
Jackson was a first-team All-ACC selection and won ACC Player-of-the-Week honors twice during his junior season. He ranked among the top ten in the ACC (league games only) in seven statistics: scoring (fourth), assists (third), free-throw percentage (second, .870), field-goal percentage (seventh, .471), three-point field-goal percentage (sixth, .398), three-point field goals made (ninth, 2.1) and minutes played per game (tied-eighth, 33.3).

Key statistics:
18.2 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 4.5 apg, 2.3 tpg, 1.1 spg, 34.1 mpg, .503 FG, .420 3PT, .796 FT

Cool statistic:
Jackson finished third in the ACC in field goal percentage, rare for a guard. He made at least half his shots in 19 games.

Reminds me of:
Troy Bell

What Insiders Say:
Boston College coach Steve Donahue
"Reggie probably didn’t totally understand where we were coming from [when Donahue first took over the program]. He did a tremendous job getting better each and every game. He had a remarkable season. What he did statistically, I could have never guessed. He led us. He was a big reason we were 9-7 in the ACC."

What Outsiders Say:
Maryland guard Terrell Stoglin
"He's difficult to defend because he can do so much."

Chris Dortch is the editor of the Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook.
