Lakeem Jackson: headed to South Carolina?

Lakeem Jackson (SF, 6’5″, 2009), a Charlotte player who has offers from Georgia Tech, Clemson and South Carolina, appears to be leaning toward the Gamecocks and the SEC.

“I know South Carolina’s No. 1 on his list right now,” said Rico Jackson, the player’s oldest brother and mentor. “I think he’ll go ahead and make his decision, if not within the next week, probably when the summer’s out, on his way back to school.”

Here’s a short clip from December showing off Jackon’s high rising dunking ability:
