JJJ gone

Postby 77-85Titan » Fri Jun 15, 2018 3:18 pm

Former Detroit Mercy assistant coach Jermaine Jackson told the Free Press his son, Titans freshman guard Jermaine Jackson Jr., has asked for and received his release from the program. Jackson Jr. made the Horizon League All-Freshman Team last season, scoring 10.5 points with a team-best 2.7 assists in 30 games (24 starts).

It is important to note that just because he was released does not mean he is gone.

I'm sad to see any of our current players want to explore leaving. However, I'm over the past and looking forward to a better future with Coach Davis and a group of players who embrace his methods. And if JJJ explores his options and decides to stay; I'm also fine with that decision.

This now leaves us with 5 returning scholarship players: 1) McFolley; 2) Blackshear; 3) Long; 4) Ballantyne; and, 5) Eichler.

It'd be unfortunate if JJJ left. I think he could be a good Titan when its all said and done.

I hope ultimately if he leaves its for 'the right reasons' and not merely to take his ball and go home because of JJ Sr not staying on staff. Also, having to sit out a year plus not having a barn burner of a frosh year I'm not sure where his stock would be at the moment -- certainly not much raised from when he came out of high school.

I agree, JJJ has the potential to be excellent basketball player at the D1 level. That being said; I believe Mike Davis has the ability to land one or possibly two quality Point Guards (e.g. graduate transfer and/or Antoine Davis) for the upcoming season.

Depends if our release is unrestricted and if the HL transfer rules would permit it.

If JJJr. decides to leave it will be interesting to see where he ends up. He had some decent offers. I'll have too look at the rosters to see where playing time will be available for him in 2019-2020. I remember him taking official visits to Toledo and Colorado.

No official news on JJJ and JB. Other reputable posters on the other board suggesting they will be attending a JUCO but not playing ball, hoping to get 3 year scholarship offers and get back in the game. Seems like this whole thing really blew up in their faces. Now, instead of playing D1 basketball at a well regarded private university for free, they’re paying money to attend a community college and play pick up games at a prep academy. Honestly, I hope somehow it all works out for them. Not looking promising right now.
