C.J. Jackson Transfers To Ohio State


C.J. Jackson, the 6 foot 1, 170-pound Eastern Florida guard, is transferring to Ohio State.

The junior college student broke the news on Twitter. He originally planned to attend George Mason but chose Eastern Florida to display his talents instead. The Charlotte, North Carolina native attended Monteverde Academy in Florida and became a Rivals.com three-start prospect for the class of 2015. His Eastern Florida games last season averaged 16.9 points, shooting 45.8 from the floor and 45 percent from the three-point area.

C.J. Jackson is replacing A.J. Harris. Harris transferred out of Ohio State last semester, and Ohio State was scouting for a replacement. Since three athletic scholarships remain, Thad Matta, the Ohio State coach, said the scholarships will go to worthy recipients. In addition, they are thrilled to have C. J. Jackson on board.
