Pros:

Solid scorer off the dribble
Adequate shooter
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Tremendous free throw generator
Adequate playmaker
Moves fairly well off the ball on offense
Decent defender that can get steals

Needs to add strength

Summary:

Quenton Jackson is a skilled combo guard that is having a solid senior at Texas A&M.  He can do a little bit of everything to help his team, and he also can run the point if needed to do so.  He doesn’t look like an exceptional athlete as he tends to operate at a steady, slow pace, but he also can throw down an impressive dunk on the break. 

Jackson had a solid showing in his team’s March 12th win over Arkansas, and he scored 20 points, and had 6 assists, 5 rebounds, and 4 steals to showcase his skills on that day.  He will need to improve his shot selection and defense, but Jackson is a tall point forward that could operate as a secondary ball mover or in a 3 and D role in the NBA someday.
