Elmarko Jackson, a four-star point guard has committed to Bill Self Kansas Jayhawks program. He choose Kansas over Miami, Notre Dame, Texas and Villanova. The 6-3 185-pound guard will play his senior high school campaign at South Kent School in Connecticut.
Jackson said during a live announcement with 247Sports. “I mean, when it comes to Kansas, it’s pretty hard to beat,” “The coaching staff is great. The winning record is great. Coach (Bill) Self and his staff are top-tier when it comes to coaching staffs across the nation. And, for me, going to college, I don’t want to be that guy that averages 30 for a team that loses. I’d rather be a guy that contributes valuable minutes, and helps a team win.”
Kansas previously picked up commitments from two other four-star, top-100 recruits: combo guard Chris Johnson and shooting guard Jamari McDowell.
