31 Jul

josh-jackson---mlive-detroit-player-of-the-year-ae90286c6ad59782In continuation of a video interview made earlier in July, the announcement has been made that former Detroit Consortium 6’7″ class of 2016 wing Josh Jackson will attend Justin-Siena High School in Sacramento, California where he will complete his final years of high school eligibility.

In a similar video made July 10th, Jackson previously stated he would not return to Consortium for his junior season, “I will not be at Consortium.  I will be out in California.”  This announcement was made public prior to the July portion of AAU basketball.  Now that AAU is over for Jackson and he is practicing in Las Vegas for Team USA 17u,  the second half of the video was completed on 1Nation’s Team Tv Youtube account with reporter Blair Glover when Jackson finished the previously open ended sentence, “in Sacramento at Justin-Siena High School.

Jackson said in the continued interview the decision for him to relocate to California was made before he led Consortium to the school’s first ever Class C basketball championship.  Averaging 28 points, 15 rebounds, and six assists a game for the Cougars.

“It was a decision made by me and my family,” Jackson had to say.  “Pretty much during our basketball season at Consortium.  So it’s been said.”

Many assumed Jackson would attend the new Prolific-Prep High School when he made his intentions clear to return to his home state of California.  However, Justin-Siena is not a prep school.  Justin-Siena is a Lasallian Roman Catholic High School located in the Sacramento suburb of Napa.  The Braves were only able to win nine of their 26 games from a year ago, and have not won a league championship since the 1998-1999 campaign.

Jackson comes to Justin-Siena as the number one player in the Rivals.com class of 2016 rankings, and earned his first collegiate offers this July competing for 1Nation, as Kansas, Michigan State, and Auburn extended scholarships to the rising junior.
