Indiana has offered 2025 5-star point guard Tyler Jackson from Baltimore, Md.
According to the On3 Industry Average, Jackson is a 4-star prospect, and the No. 13 overall player in the 2025 class. He’s listed as the No. 1 combo guard according to that aggregation, and a 5-star by some individual outlets.
Jackson plays in the same Team Thrill Under Armour AAU program as 2024 IU target Derik Queen. He played up a year with Queen at times during the summer, and he also played some on the Nike EYBL with Team Melo. Jackson knows Carmelo Anthony, a fellow Baltimore product who is close with IU coach Mike Woodson, and played with his son Kiyan Anthony in those games.
According to the EYBL Web site, in four games Jackson averaged 30.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists while shooting 50 percent from three.
On film Jackson’s frame and skillset looks a lot like 2024 IU target Boogie Fland.
In his assessment of Jackson, Rivals’ Cassidy wrote the following this week:
“Jackson is constantly forcing action when he’s on the floor and dictates pace as well as any guard in the class. He’s still improving when it comes to decision-making, but he’s already a true three-level scorer that has developed a pretty reliable floater to go along with his shooting ability and knack for finishing at the rim. He’s undoubtedly one of the top guards in the 2025 class and looked the part for most of the event on Saturday. He’s still limited a bit defensive because he lacks truly ideal size, but he’ll be able to give a team a little more on that end as he adds muscle down the road.”
Indiana joined Maryland, Villanova, Penn State, Alabama, Syracuse, Houston, Kansas, Seton Hall, Mississippi State, Rutgers, Georgia Tech, DePaul, Illinois, LSU, Pitt, California, Arizona State and others who have offered.
