Former North Carolina Tar Heels commit G.G. Jackson reclassifies to 2022 class, commits to South Carolina Gamecocks

Rising elite senior GG Jackson announced his commitment to South Carolina on Saturday, less than two weeks after retiring from North Carolina.

Jackson announced on Twitter that he would be reclassified to the 2022 class and join head coach Lamont Paris’ first-year Gamecocks program for the upcoming season.

Jackson, a 6-foot-9 forward from Ridge View High School in Columbia, South Carolina, is ranked #6 on the ESPN 100 for 2023.

He averaged 12.9 points and 9.8 rebounds on the Nike EYBL Circuit last spring and summer, and this season he averaged 12.1 points and 9.4 rebounds in 14 games on the circuit. During his junior high school season, he averaged 22.1 points and 10.9 rebounds and was named South Carolina’s Gatorade Player of the Year. Jackson was also named MVP of the prestigious NBPA Top 100 camp last month after averaging 14.0 points and 9.2 rebounds.

Jackson announced on July 14 that he was retiring from North Carolina, becoming the first Tar Heels to do so in nearly 20 years; JR Smith signed to the Tar Heels in 2003 but chose to go straight to the NBA out of high school. No player in the modern recruiting era has parted ways with the Tar Heels and gone to college elsewhere.
