Even though Marquise Jackson has fallen out of the limelight cast by his father's stardom (50 was a no-show at his graduation last year), he's still getting some attention on his own. That's because he's currently vying for a spot on a roster at a Division I school, and recently dropped 20 points on the top high school recruits in America.
[SLAM] Playing against the No. 1 prep school in the country in Brewster Academy, Jackson found himself matched up with high major recruits such as Justin Simon, Jalen Adams, and David Crisp. These three point guards are going to Arizona, UConn and Washington respectively, but you wouldn’t have known that if you looked at the stat sheet. Scoring 20 points on a mere eight shots, Marquise showed some serious range and while his squad ultimately fell to Brewster, it certainly wasn’t due to his play.
Might his son's increased publicity drive 50 to make some sort of amends before the world finds out about this regrettable exchange? Can a 5'9" scoring point guard make it in D-I basketball? Does USC still sign the offspring of washed up hip hop moguls? Is this kid legit?
