Gonzaga was the latest school to offer Jackson-Cartwright. The Bulldogs have made an early impression on the junior guard after just recently throwing their hat into the ring.

ďI was surprised really,Ē he said. ďI didnít really think they had any interest in me. They came to my high school and expressed a lot of interest. It was really unexpected. I love the program. I like the school. I like how they get up and down. Small guards play well in their program. Itís obviously exciting hearing from them.Ē

He'd have one year to be Pangos' understudy, correct? A Meech who can shoot would be a nice addition. I would prefer some length out there, but Few doesn't seem to mind at all. Wasn't there another guy that the board has been coveting for the PG spot?

JP: You might be talking about Kendall Small, a 2015 pg. Then there's Josh Perkins but he seems more like a 2-guard and I can't remember what year.

Parker Jackson-Cartwright has been known as the top playmaker in California, but as the years have passed by, he has established himself as the top junior point guard on the west coast. While many overlook PJC because of his small stature (5í7 and just 140 pounds), he proved all spring and summer that he could hang with the nationís finest.

Having watched him on the Nike EYBL circuit, NBA Top 100 Camp, CP3 Elite Guard Camp, LeBron James Skills Academy, and Nike Global Challenge, we saw our fair share of this shifty junior. PJC has an uncanny ability to finish in the lane with either hand, plays solid on the ball defense, and showed off an IQ higher than that of some of the college campers at CP3. In addition, PJC uses his intelligence to play the game like that of a college vet with the way he uses his off arm to shield off defenders both in terms of getting past defenders and then in order to get his shot off versus bigs.

Looking forward, Parker owns offers from just about every school in the PAC-12, NC State, St Johnís, San Diego State, amongst a hand full of others. Jordan McLaughlin has been making his case as an elite playmaker too, so PJC will have a lot of competition in not just the west coast, but the city of LA moving forward.

Yes, thank you! Kendall Small. It would be nice to have someone on board before that.

Him and Kendal Small could give us our two complete line up approach that weve been using with Pangos and Stockton the last two years. Alberts/Perkins would be a great 2 guard ala Bell. Dont mind this idea at all if all the named players can buy into sharing the time.

I don't see a 5 star kid ranked 6th at his position coming in with the idea of sharing time.

I like that the staff is lining up 4 and 5 star guards. Now to prioritize and go after them accordingly.

the 89 indicates as close to a 5 star as a 4 star can get...i'm still getting used to the new ranking scale at espn...but it does follow the academic scale most everyone should be used to.

yes, but they have since "rebalanced the numbers". so not comparable.

94, but I think that was before they changed the grade scale.

Soooo, how does Bells 94 compare to this kids 89?

the 89 is better...used to be a kid needed a 97 to be a 5 star...now a 97 is andrew wiggins =).

Pretty sure they're close. I think his 94 is roughly an 87 or 88 on the new scale. For comparison, Kyle Wiltjer was a 97 on the old scale.

If he is anything like that Anderson kid for USD, I would take him in a heartbeat.

I love watching Anderson. A blur with great court vision. Just a playmaker. Reminds me of Ish Smith from Wake Forest a couple years back.

Anderson was Orange County player of the year and had no big takers because he was 5' 7".

So why is the smallish Parker rated so much higher?

One report claims they haven't seen a PG this good since Baron Davis. Just relaying what I read.

Buzz kill. The post after we found out that he was the best since Baron Davis the kid commits to our biggest enemy western power.

Good luck young man - 'till you play us.

The OP's link made it pretty clear he was very likely heading to Arizona.

Lets win the NCAA championship this year and land someone better.

Good choice.

We can go small, too; let's get Kendall Small.

What about this kid? He already plays for Gonzaga so we should have an inside scoop:
