Colorado guard joins Hardrocker men's hoops team
Release Date Wednesday, July 23, 2014

RAPID CITY --- South Dakota School of Mines men’s basketball head coach Jason Henry is pleased to announce the signing of the newest Hardrocker student-athlete recruit, Jaisean Jackson from Centennial, Colo.

Jackson is a 6-foot shooting guard who played his prep ball for the Eaglecrest High School Raptor and helped his team to a 19-7 overall record and were ranked fourth in the state of Colorado during his senior year.

“We are very excited to have Jaisean in our program. He will be a combo guard. He has the ability to play the point but right now he is more comfortable at the off-guard position,” Henry said. “He can break guys down off the dribble and score at the basket but is also able to knock it down from behind the arch.”

In his final season of high school hoops, Jackson averaged 13.7 points, 2.7 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.2 steals per game. He shot 50 percent from the field and made good on 32 percent of his attempts from the three-point range.

“He’s pretty athletic and can do a number of different things on the offense and defensive ends. We are looking for bright things in the future for Jaisean in the Hardrocker men’s basketball program,” Henry added.

While attending South Dakota School of Mines, Jackson plans to pursue a degree in Industrial Engineering.
