If your NBA team has a shot at selecting No. 1 overall in next year’s Draft, you will love this. Josh Jackson was the nation’s top recruit in the class of 2016. Odds are, he’s going to have a long and successful career as a pro because he’s able to do stuff like this.
Kansas took down UAB on Monday night, 83-63. Jackson had 22 points, seven rebounds, three assists, three steals, and one monster dunk in which he took a forearm to the face. It was an impressive highlight for the true freshman, who showed off his explosive athleticism and his ability to yam all over a defender. For most people, getting drilled in the face would ruin their day. For Jackson, it’s one moment in what will be a lengthy highlight tape in a Jayhawks uniform.
