NBA projection
Jackson has been projected as a second-round pick in most mock drafts. He’s undersized by NBA standards, but Jackson has the uncanny knack to impact the outcome of games, whether it’s with his passing or seeking his own shot.

2012-13 Season
Jackson led Baylor to the NIT championship and was chosen tournament MVP after a crazy stretch of four straight double-double performances, including 26 points and a school-record 16 assists against Arizona State and 20 points and 13 assists against Providence. In his senior season, Jackson was a first-team All-Big 12 pick after leading the league in assists and steals, and he set a school record for points in a season (712).

Key statistics
19.8 ppg | 3.8 rpg | 7.0 apg | 3.4 tpg | 1.5 spg | 34.8 mpg | .420 FG | .351 3PT | .800 FT

Cool statistic
Jackson was the first power conference player to lead his league in scoring and assists since Arizona’s Jason Terry (Pac-10) in 1998-99.

Reminds me of...
Nate Robinson

What Insiders Say
Baylor coach Scott Drew
"You can put his numbers up with any guard in the country. The bigger the stage, the bigger the moment, the better he performs."

What Outsiders Say
Kansas guard Ben McLemore
“He is definitely a quick player and he controlled the game [with 28 points and 10 assists in an 81-58 Baylor rout]. He is quick, very quick.”
