Duke had a few guys declare for the NBA Draft earlier than expected, but the guy everyone least thought would stay in the draft has officially decided to do so.

Jackson averaged 10.9 points a game for the Blue Devils in his freshman season while dishing out 1.7 assists and grabbing 2.5 boards in about 25 minutes a game. Those numbers aren’t eye-popping, but his performance at the NBA Combine on Thursday was to NBA scouts and personnel there. He recorded 13 points and four assists in a five-on-five setting with other draft hopefuls.
He’s 6’3.5″ in shoes and has a 6’7.5″ wingspan which teams will like a lot paired with his athleticism. Apparently he did well enough to warrant hiring an agent as it’s been confirmed by ESPN’s Jeff Goodman:
Only Harry Giles is left for Duke who has not yet hired an agent, but has his name in the NBA Draft. If he returns then Duke should be alright on the big man front.
