Joe Jackson (White Station) has been a standout at the prep level in Tennessee since we first laid eyes on him at our inaugural Tennessee Prep Hoops Rankings and Exposure showcase at CPA before the young man was entering the ninth grade.
Something special was written all over him and now the culmination of all that hard work and success was realized as Mr. Jackson was selected to participate in the prestigious McDonald's All-American game that will take place March 21st at the Value Center Arena in Columbus, Ohio.
Jackson is the 21 st player from the state of Tennessee to have the honor of playing in the McDonald's game.
