The life of Justin Jackson

Justin Jackson is one of the top high school basketball players in the country, ranked No. 10 by Rivals in the 2014 class, and recently signed with North Carolina. But what sets Jackson apart from other elite prep basketball players is his daily routine as a homeschooled athlete. “It’s tough,” Jackson said. “I just try to fit everything in. It’s not for everyone, but I really enjoy it.” A homeschooled student since the fourth grade, Jackson has seen demands on his time soar the past two years. (USA Today)
