Maryland was one of the Big Ten's most pleasant surprises last season. Despite losing so many key pieces, the Terrapins found a win to go 24-9 overall and make it to the NCAA Tournament for the third straight season. It was one of the most important years of head coach Mark Turgeon's tenure with the school.
Jackson, of course, was a major part of that success. As a true freshman, he averaged 10.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 0.9 steals per game. Jackson also had some impressive games down the stretch, scoring double-digits in three of the team's final six games.
While most expect Jackson to return to campus next fall, this should be an interesting few weeks. DraftExpress rates him as the No. 23 freshman prospect in the country, which should at least get him some attention. The question will just be whether he can 'wow' some scouts in interviews and workouts in the coming weeks.
Nonetheless, regardless of whether Jackson decides to stay or leave, Maryland fans will have to wait on pins and needless in the immediate future to see what decision the wing will make.
