When Ryan Anderson committed to Boston College Monday afternoon, he hinted that Lonnie Jackson might be joining him on the Eagles at some point.
It turned out to be sooner rather than later, as Jackson committed to Boston College a few hours later.
“The reason I picked Boston College is because it’s the best of both worlds, academics and basketball-wise,” Jackson said. “The coaching staff, campus and the style they play was a perfect fit I couldn’t pass up.”
Jackson, a 6-foot-3 guard from Valencia (Calif.), chose the Eagles over reported offers from UTEP and Arizona State.
Anderson, Jackson and fellow Boston College commit Kyle Caudill all played on the same team in their native California.
“I’m beyond happy,” Anderson said.
