Huge thanks to Coach Shutte and Coach Rose for this opportunity, looking forward to getting to work. Roll Knights,” Jackson wrote on Instagram.
Jackson is currently a junior at La Salle and is looking to win his third straight high school state championship.
As for his decision to choose Rutgers over other schools, it came down to coaching.
