Justin Jackson takes route less traveled to be top recruit


The No. 8 ranked prospect in the nation – No. 1 at his position according to ESPN – has all the pedigree to be attending a private academy or a high school hoops factory. But UNC signee Justin Jackson is home-schooled and plays for a program called Highschool Christian Youth Academy based in Houston, Texas. "People think of homeschool kids as people who just stay at home in their PJ's," Jackson said Thursday before taking the court at Broughton High School. "We have to go out there and show them that homeschool kids can play ball too." (High School OT)
