Michigan extends offer to 2023 four-star guard Elmarko Jackson

Michigan has an extended an offer to one of the better scoring guards in the 2023 class.

The Michigan Wolverines have yet to land a commitment from a recruit in the 2023 class, but they’ve been hot on the recruiting trail by extending offers like a high school kid passing out flyers for a party.

One of the latest offers has been extended to Elmarko Jackson, a 2023 four-star guard hailing from South Kent, Connecticut.

Listed as a combo guard on the 247Sports composite, Jackson is ranked as the No. 91 overall recruit in his class, the 17th-best combo guard and the third-best prospect in his state. He’s racked up a number of offers from schools like Maryland, Miami, Nebraska, Notre Dame and Rutgers, among others.

He does a great job getting separation from defenders, whether it be scoring through traffic near the rim, or getting his shot off after a nice step-back shot. He can consistently knock down both mid-range and three-point jumpers, which seems like a prerequisite for good college point guards at this point.

Jackson’s incredibly patient on offense and does a great job assessing the defense and processing the court ahead of him before making a decision. He’s a great passer, and with his quickness and ability to embrace contact, there’s a little bit of Jalen Brunson in his game.

Jackson is incredibly fast and loves being the puppet master in transition. He can open teammates with ease, and throw down a thunderous dunk if the red seas are parted for him.

Juwan Howard and company still have quite a bit of work to do when it comes to the 2023 class, but landing a talented ball-handler like Jackson would certainly make their jobs easier.
