Josh Jackson Finds New Home at Justin-Siena in Napa, California

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.

Detroit Consortium’s Josh Jackson On The Move To California

11 Jul

2013 adidas Super 64After months of rumors and speculation, Detroit Consortium and 1Nation rising junior forward Josh Jackson has made the announcement public, he will not return to Consortium for his junior season.

Towards the end of a video interview with reporter Blair Glover on 1Nation’s youtube Tv account, the question was posed to the 6’7″ Jackson, “Will you be at Consortium for the 2014-2015 school year?”  After taking a deep breath, Jackson responded, “I will not be at Consortium. I will be out in California.”  Following the word California, a blank screen popped up with the words “Stay Tuned.”  Leaving many questions unanswered to the basketball community within Michigan.

The decision for Jackson comes after a sophomore seasons in which he averaged 28 points and 15 rebounds a game for his Consortium Cougars, a charter school located on Detroit’s Westside, leading them to a Class C state championship.  He solidified himself not only as Michigan’s top player, but one of the premier players in the whole country.  Rivals.com in their national class of 2016 rankings lists Jackson as the number one player in the class, while ESPN tabs Jackson for second, only behind a seven foot center from Virginia.

California is in fact home for Jackson.  He was born in San Diego, as he pointed out in the interview, while his mother was trying out for the WNBA for the league’s inaugural season.  Now which school Josh will finish his high school career, is the million dollar question.  California is home to some of the most prestigious schools when it comes to producing basketball talent.  Schools such as Mater Dei and Archbishop Mitty have their fair of distinguished alumni in the basketball profession.  And while they might be in the running, Josh thus far has not named any particular schools that would be likely destinations, but with the Summer nearing the halfway mark, a decision will likely be made soon in order to signup for Fall classes at his next school.

Josh has dazzled and awed Southeast Michigan for two years now, and while many will miss his spectacular performances on the hardwood during Winter time, Jackson will be entering into a new chapter of his life.  One which many can agree is full of promise.
