Ian Jackson picks up big honor in Overtime Elite

Ian Jackson won’t be on North Carolina’s campus for a few more months but already the excitement is building for the five-star commit.

Jackson committed to UNC in early 2023 and has been ranked as a five-star recruit for the entire year as he makes up one of three players in the Tar Heels’ 2024 class. While Jackson played the first few years of his high school career in New York, he’s now in the Overtime Elite league.

And he’s making a big impact.

At the end of February, Jackson was named as one of five players on the First Team All OTE. He joined Eli Ellis, Karter Knox, John Bol and Rakease Passmore to earn the honors:

Jackson has been fantastic in his lone season with Overtime Elite playing for Team Jelly Fam. As he wraps up his high school career, Jackson is proving he is one of the top recruits in the country and should have an impact right away at North Carolina when he arrives.

Currently, Jackson is ranked as the No. 8 overall player and No. 4 shooting guard in the 2024 class per the 247Sports rankings.
