Lone Peak guard and former BYU verbal commit Frank Jackson continues to sizzle on the court.
The junior, who entered Thursday averaging 24.7 points per game, dropped a career-high 54 points to lead the Knights to a 93-76 win over Clark County, Nevada at the Jerry Tarkanian Classic in Las Vegas Thursday afternoon.
The 55 points is also a tournament record and breaks Jackson's school record of 43 points, which he set five days ago in a game against Overland, Colorado.
Now, the talk is about how many big-name schools will get into the Frank Jackson mix as his recruitment goes viral.— Greg Wrubell (@gregwrubell) December 18, 2014
It's not the first time Jackson has hit the 50-point plateau in a game this season. He poured in 50 points for the Utah Reign in the MPAC Sports Basketball Elite International tournament in Dubai over the summer, followed by 40 points the following day.
Jackson verbally committed to BYU in 2013, but decommitted last month. He's currently listed as a four-star recruit by ESPN, Rivals.com and Scout.com for the 2016 class.
Has Frank Jackson completely ruled out BYU?— TheJazzyUte (@TheJazzyUte) December 19, 2014
BYU could have a very loaded team to offer Frank Jackson to join in 16-17. Nick Emery, TJ Haws, Toolson, Mika, & Dastrup among others.— Greg Welch (@ArtDirectorBYU) December 18, 2014
At this point Frank Jackson would be a great get for the Jazz. Holy cow he is good— Uteman (@Uteman_forever) December 18, 2014
