It was coordinated. It was precise. And, quite frankly, it was graceful.
In the Elite 24 basketball game in Brooklyn, New York, Lone Peak High School basketball standout Frank Jackson put away a 360 dunk that turned heads.
Outside of the impressive dunk, Jackson had an impressive showing at the Elite 24 game, scoring 20 points playing for the EZ Pass team. Jackson was named one of four MVPs for the game.
The Elite 24 features some of the best high school basketball players in a weekend game exhibition.
“The Elite 24 is a platform created to celebrate the heart and soul of basketball. It’s a showcase of the game’s rising talent, and we play outside to enhance that gritty, freelancing style that players and fans both love to be part of,” said Kris Stone, Elite 24 founder and director of sports marketing. “This game brings together the next generation of future NBA stars, giving them the opportunity to battle it out for bragging rights and show the nation that they have what it takes to be great.”
Jackson hasn’t decided where he will play following his senior season at Lone Peak. He’s received offers from seven different universities including Arizona, Arizona State, Maryland, Stanford, UCLA, Duke and BYU. In a UV360 poll, you voted that Jackson will most likely choose to play for Duke. Scout.com says Jackson is most likely to choose Duke or Stanford. Jackson has said he would like to make a decision before the high school basketball season begins.
“I want to play where I’ll feel the most comfortable and where it’s a good fit,” Jackson told UV360 in April. “I’m confident I can compete for playing time on any team that recruits me.”
