|High School Class of 2014: Elite Prospect Scouting Reports, Part One|
September 27, 2012
-Amazing frame for his age
-Freakishly Long arms
-Solid scoring instincts
-Handles the ball in transition. Has a solid first step. Good feel for creating and scoring around the rim
-Tremendous defender. Smothers opponents with length. Plays hard.
-Well coached. Smart passer
-Very poor shooter at this stage. Needs to work on shooting mechanics. Elbow locked in. Release not fluid.
-Not a great ball-handler in the half-court
Outlook: Was by far the youngest player at the U17 World Championship at just 15 years old, but had no problem competing against the older players. Was Canada's best player in many stretches. Not a brilliant scorer, but finds ways to score, primarily in transition. Very physically mature for his age. Will be very interesting to see how he continues to improve as he gets older.

HoopHall Classic Scouting Reports, Part Two
January 21, 2009
Justin Jackson (unranked Scout, Rivals, ESPN) was not a guy that we came here to see initially, but was someone who really stood out. He’s a junior combo forward with a slim 6’7” frame who plays with a great motor. He was aggressive all game long, always looking to attack and stay active on the glass on both ends. He finished the game with 24 points (8-11 FG, 8-8 FT), 15 rebounds and two blocks. His ability to rebound and get to the basket are his strongest assets right now, despite possessing below average ball handling skills, and average athleticism. He’s one of those guys who is in constant motion and as a result, he finds himself in the right place at the right time more often than not. He also has a nice looking stroke on the catch and shoot – not quite able to create a shot for himself and doesn’t have 3-point range just yet. Towards the ends of the game he seemed fatigued after playing all out for 3 quarters and that showed up in sloppy decision making, contributing to his 7 turnovers on the day. Overall he had an outstanding game and is someone who will surely draw big offers next season.
