G.G. Jackson is a very athletic, skilled big man that could end up being one of the best players to come out of the 2023 draft class.  He reclassified to be able to play in college basketball this year, and he is skilled player that has shown a solid set of skills to go along with having great athleticism.  He will need to continue to refine his jump shot and he struggled to make shots efficiently this season, but he is a very talented prospect that could end up being a first round pick in the 2023 draft.
