Notre Dame now faces plenty of opposition in an attempt to keep local star point guard Demetrius Jackson local.
It would be nice if he is that good to keep him here in his backyard.
He is one of my lifelong friends younger brother. He has really no interest in recruiting yet. Like the article said he plans on just getting a lot better. He definitely is doing that and I hope when he decides that his choice is to get out of South Bend. He will be better served away from this mess. I still remember teaching this kid the game on the Playstation when he was 12. He was beating us then and I can only imagine playing him on the real court now.
Just out of curiosity, what is this "mess" that you speak of?
He's in a good situation with the family he's currently with, however the city of South Bend is the mess I speak of. I've seen many good athletes never get out of town or reach their potential. Maybe that's more on that individual athlete than anything else, but I'd rather see him get out of here. The fact that his father is in prison has nothing to do with what I'm speaking about. I just want to see him succeed and there are too many negative influences in this city. Being a local star is nice, but staying here and remaining a star is often times a burden. However, Skylar sure is doing a great job on the contrary.
Until the last sentence in your response I was getting ready to post the same - Skylar Diggins. Daniel Smith seems to be off to a good start as well.
You know the kid personally, but from a distance he seems to have his act together. Being ranked in the Top 100 on one national recruiting service didn't even seem to phase him ... with his immediate response being that it didn't matter and he just wants to keep getting better.
