Josh Jackson takes over top spot in SLAM’s 2016 class — Cuse Clicks

While only a sophomore, Josh Jackson has already emerged as arguably the best player in the state of Michigan — and quite possibly now the top baller in the class of 2016 nationwide. The 6-6 stud has been on a tear all season long, as it became evident from the very first game. In the season opener against Detroit Frederick Douglas, Jackson finished for 27 points, 22 rebounds and 6 blocks. By mid-January he was easily surpassing 30 points on a nightly basis, at one point having three consecutive 30+ points outings, including a steal in the last minute of play, during the third game, that sealed the win.
