Quentin Jackson, junior-college point guard, commits to Temple

Quentin Jackson Jr., a point guard who began his career at UNC-Charlotte and played last season at Tallahassee Community College, has committed to Temple.

Jackson made his announcement on Twitter.

He will have two years of eligibility remaining.

Jackson averaged 5.5 points as a freshman at UNC-Charlotte before his season at the junior-college level. While in Florida, the 6-foot-3 Jackson averaged 10 points, 3.1 assists and 2.3 turnovers per game. He appeared in 28 games, averaging 22.1 minutes per game, with 15 starts.

In November, Jackson announced that he had committed to Florida Gulf Coast, but obviously changed his mind.

Jackson’s father played for coach Jim Valvano at North Carolina State in the 80s. His great-grandfather was Wendell Scott Sr., the only African American to win a NASCAR cup race.

This is the second transfer Temple has received a commitment from this month. Earlier,  Monty Scott, a high-scoring 6-foot-5 sophomore from Kennesaw State, announced his tranfser to Temple after averaging 17.3 points last season. Scott must sit out next season in accordance with NCAA transfer rules and will have two years of eligibility remaining.
