Five-star Class of 2016 guard Frank Jackson cancels visit and sets official to Duke


Duke is receiving a big official visit to campus in late August as a source confirmed to that five-star point guard Frank Jackson will go to Durham. The native of Utah, who previously officially visited Stanford and cancelled a planned unofficial visit to Arizona, is supposed to visit Duke on Aug. 29. The news of Jackson’s visit was first reported by Evan Daniels of

Putting together a big recruiting class could be in the cards for the Blue Devils, as they already have a Class of 2016 commitment from five-star wing Jayson Tatum and they’re one of the favorites now for the 6-foot-3 Jackson. During the July live evaluation period, Duke was often three deep watching Jackson’s games with the Utah Prospects and they’ve made him a priority recruit this summer.

Regarded as the No. 10 overall prospect in the latest¬†Rivals150, Jackson can score with the ball in his hands or make plays for others. If Duke were to land Jackson to go with Tatum, it’s a dynamic one-two punch on the wing as the Blue Devils would then target big men like Harry Giles and Marques Bolden.
