2019 PF Trayce Jackson-Davis talks Recruiting, Three Schools Working Hardest
By JOSH WHITETrayce Jackson-Davis, the 6-foot-8 power forward from Center Grove High School (IN), told ZAGSBLOG that Indiana, Iowa and Michigan State have been recruiting him the hardest.
He broke down each of those three programs:
Indiana: “They have been in contact with me since Coach [Archie] Miller and his staff have been at Indiana. They have a great facility and a great fanbase. They told me how their bigs are free to do more things and not be under the basket.”
Iowa: “It was a great visit. I got to meet with the coaches and some of the players. Their recruiting class coming in was really good. They told me to be more versatile.”
Michigan State: “The new weight room is really sick. They redid their whole stadium including the locker room and it was nice too.”
The consensus four-star recruit holds more than a dozen power-five offers and has taken unofficial visits to Indiana, Ohio State and Michigan State since the summer.
As for official visits, the Center Grove, Indiana native said, “I’ll probably start next year. My recruitment is still wide open.”
Purdue, Virginia Tech, Pittsburgh and Clemson remain in the mix as well.
“I think I bring a low post threat with the ability to stretch the defense on the perimeter, but my handles and shot still need work,” Jackson-Davis said.
According to 247Sports, Jackson-Davis is the No. 47 prospect in the class of 2019 and the No. 3 prospect from the state of Indiana.
