UConn recruit Will Jackson changes his mind

  UConn recruit Will Jackson has changed his mind.

  Jackson, who gave UConn a verbal commitment in February, has decided to stay close to home and attend the University of Georgia.

  His decision apparently wasn’t a surprise judging from a number of recruiting service reports.

  He’s the second Class of 2015 guard recruit to de-commit in recent weeks. Prince Ali reopened his recruiting search.

  The 6-foot-4 Jackson attends Athens (Ga.) Christian. He reportedly made the move because of UConn’s guard depth and desire to play for Georgia coach Mark Fox.

  “I felt like UConn was getting a lot of guards, and it just isn’t the right place for me in the future,” Jackson told Rivals, a recruiting service. “Georgia is home for me, and it will be easier transition for me.”

 Recently-committed guard Jalen Adams is the only member of UConn’s 2015 recruiting class.
