Isaiah Jackson is a very athletic, energetic big man that may project to be a defensive specialist in the NBA.  He is a gifted shot blocker that can make plays defensively to help his team protect the paint, but he will need to expand his skill set on the offensive end.  Right now, he currently projects to be a first round prospect for the 2021 draft.
