PG Tre Jackson of Blythewood made an unofficial visit to USC last week to meet with Gamecock head coach Frank Martin. He left with an offer from Martin and he’s now got the Gamecocks under consideration.
“It means a lot right now,” Jackson said of the USC offer. “A lot more are going to come too. He (Martin) said he feels that I’m a winner, that I can do anything for South Carolina to win and advance. He said said he loves how I have a feel for the game. He said I just have it and all that.”
Jackson has not scheduled an official visit with the Gamecocks but he’s considering the possibility. He visited Murray State last month and last weekend he visited Winthrop.
“I really enjoyed that visit. It was a great experience,” he said. “I got to know the guys. I love how involved everybody is and the relationships that everybody has with each other. He’s (Pat Kelsey) a great coach and he’s always involved with practice. He’s a very energized person.”
Jackson will take an official visit to Florida Gulf Coast September 14th and he’s looking at visiting Iowa State September 21st.
In making his decision, Jackson said he’s looking at coaching personality, playing style and playing opportunity. He averaged 19 points and 4 assists per game last season.
