he is now 18 in ESPN 100
Doesn't look like he's coming here but another example of Izzo and his staff identifying a great prospect early before most.
Illini beat writer says MSU is no longer recruiting Jackson, is that valid info?
This is purely a rumor so please delete it if necessary but a poster on a private Notre Dame message board reported a few weeks ago that Izzo and Jackson had a bit of a falling out - something related to a couple back-to-back phone calls. I could be butchering the post as I heard it second-hand but, assuming they had a falling out, how it happened is really irrelevant.
Seems like a great kid and a rock solid player. I wish him the best wherever he lands.
It sure seems that way. If we are still recruiting him, we certainly aren't going full out. Not sure why (some speculate it is because they don't want to impact Tyus Jones' recruitment) but he seems like he would be a great fit at MSU. Sorry he isn't going to wear the G&W.
According to Melvin Nunn, whose son Kendrick just committed to Illinois, he says Jackson could commit to Illinois as well in the next week.

ESPN No. 19 senior @D_Jay24 will make his college announcement Thursday on ESPNU's Recruiting Nation.
Do we have any chance???
I think Izzo stopped recruiting him some time ago. It's ND or Illinois.
Down to ILL & ND.

Not surprising, can't argue with playing for the hometown team. Glad he didn't go to Illinois.
Jackson commits to Notre Dame
Wait...Hondo said he was a lock for MSU!!!
I think the kid would have been a great fit here. Too bad we backed off, but Izzo knows best!
You sound like a Wolverine slappy. It's not like Izzo stopped recruiting him because he couldn't play. The kid simply wanted to play elsewhere...
