Isaiah Jackson Highlights
Isaiah Jackson NBA Draft Profile
Isaiah Jackson is a high-flying big who is capable of quickly running the floor. However, Jackson is best with his back to the basket in the low post. His ability to attack off the dribble and quick first step allows for him to blow by defenders even from the low block.
Isaiah Jackson’s size is probably his biggest issue. At 6-10, 206 pounds, he lacks the size to be able to play effective defense against big men in the NBA. However, if Jackson can develop a reliable jumper and continue to put on muscle mass, he could present matchup problems down the road.
