There was a buzz going around the recruiting circles in Kansas when Xzavie Jackson moved into Wichita from California.
After a strong showing at a high school combine Jackson was labeled as one of the top prospects to watch in Northern California. But soon after the camp he moved into Wichita Heights High with his sister who is an assistant women’s basketball coach at Wichita State.
“Several Big 12 schools showed interest in him,” said Heights coach Rick Wheeler. “He’s a physical specimen. He runs in the 4.5 range. He could play on either side of the ball and I would put him at defense in college.”
Jackson received interest from Missouri, Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, and Wyoming. Last weekend he took an official visit to Missouri.
“He committed to Missouri over the weekend,” Wheeler said. “I know he had a good time on his visit.”
Jackson is still in the process of meeting NCAA academic requirements. If he doesn’t expect Missouri to sign and place him.
