    Saw Jimmy on FS1 the other night previewing the Big East. I know Fox owns BTN but is this a permanent move?

    Don't think so. He's been featured as a CBB analyst on FS1 heavily, but I know he was on a BTN Live preview episode just a week or two ago.

    Now that is a good quote. I averaged 13 points and 6 assists and we lost in the 3rd round of the playoffs in high school so me and Jim Jackson are basically the same.

    Jackson in them home grays should be in any sort of advertisement for the university.

    1. Jim Jackson, Macomber ‘89 (192 points): What, you expected different?

    A Macman among boys in his prep years at Macomber, Jackson was the panel’s runaway pick, receiving 16 of 20 first-place votes. As retired Blade columnist John Gugger put it this week, “JJ came into high school as a freshman with a college senior’s body, a veteran NBA point guard’s vision, and Mother Teresa’s unselfishness.”

    What followed was the show of a lifetime.

    Jackson became the state’s biggest prep sensation since Jerry Lucas (Middletown), one rim-rattling slam and no-look pass at a time. His senior year, the two-time Ohio Mr. Basketball winner averaged 31.5 points, 11.2 rebounds, 6.2 assists, and 3 steals, and led the Macmen to a Division I state title.

    At Ohio State, he was no less sensational, earning national player of the year honors in 1992 before foregoing his senior season to enter the draft. Selected fourth by the Dallas Mavericks, Jackson played for 12 teams in 14 NBA seasons.

    An Ohio State great is going into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame.

    Jim Jackson, who scored 1,785 points in just three seasons at Ohio State from 1989-92, is set to be inducted into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame as part of its class of 2021, which was announced Sunday.

    The Toledo native was a state champion at Macomber High School and earned McDonald's All-America honors as a senior. As a freshman at Ohio State during the 1989-90 season, Jackson averaged 16.1 points and 5.5 rebounds per game and helped the Buckeyes get back to the NCAA tournament after a two-year absence.

    Jackson earned first-team All-American honors, was the Big Ten Player of the Year and led the Buckeyes to Big Ten championships in both his sophomore and junior seasons. He was also the UPI National Player of the Year in his junior year, when he averaged 22.4 points, 6.8 rebounds and four assists per game and led the Buckeyes to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament.

    He led Ohio State in scoring in all three of his seasons as a Buckeye and started 93 consecutive games.

    Jackson became just the third men's basketball player in Ohio State history to have his number retired when his No. 22 was taken out of circulation by the program in 2001.

    Selected by the Dallas Mavericks with the No. 4 overall pick in the 1992 NBA draft, Jackson went on to play in the NBA for 14 seasons, suiting up for 12 different teams.

    And a nice human being to boot. I got the chance to meet him when our sons were playing on the AAU circuit.

    Best player I have watched at OSU.

    Kellogg, Hopson, Oden, Turner, we have had some good ones, but Jimmy gets my vote.
