Former Oak Hill (VA) standout Christian McCray has also been a playmaker at West Los Angeles College (CA).

He averaged 18.0 points and 6.8 rebounds on 54-percent shooting from the field and 40-percent shooting from three.

The 6-7 wing has offers from Southern, Coppin State, UNC-Asheville, Chicago State and North Carolina A&T.

Cal State Fullerton also recently offered him as his decision date nears closers.

“I know they have a good staff,” he said. “I like what I’ve been hearing so far.”

McCray is obviously a scoring threat on all three levels and has proved himself amongst the coaches following his consistently. They all like his versatility and what he brings to the wing/guard position.

“[Coaches like] my length, my athletic ability and my ability to be able to create for myself and others,” McCray explained. “And my ability to defend the ball well.”

McCray is inching very close to a decision. He originally planned on committing April 15th, but he’s thinking about pushing his date back a few days.

“My official signing date was suppose to be on the 15th but I’m thinking about pushing it back to the 18th,” he said. “Because I’m still open to others schools and not narrowing down yet.”

He will be doing his homework and listening to what coaches have to offer. His ideal program has to encompass a lot of things but it comes down to three simple things that will really win him over.

“Structure and family oriented,” he said. “And a staff that really cares about my development on the court and off the court.”

Clarence Jackson visiting Drake

Polk State College (FL) freshman guard Clarence Jackson is a qualifier with three years left to play.

The 6-7 guard that has been dubbed, “Mr. Versatility,” by almost anyone that has watched him, has offers from Stetson, Mount St. Mary’s, Akron, Coastal Carolina, Radford and Drake with LSU, New Mexico State, Boise State, Wichita State and UNC Asheville showing interest.

“Coaches love my motor and the versatility to play two through four and produce–scoring or playmaking,” Jackson said. “Also my ability to defend anybody on the floor. Dog mentality.”

Wichita State came in last Thursday to see him, while Stetson pulled the trigger on an offer.

“I was very grateful for that offer,” he said. “I have a good relationship with the coach and it’s clear that I will be a key piece in rebuilding the program.”

Jackson’s recruitment is starting to really heat up and more programs are starting to show interest. With more programs starting to recruit him, he’s unsure about his commitment timeline or when he’ll make any recruiting decisions for that matter.

“Right now in my recruitment I’m not set on signing early,” he explained. “I don’t have a sure date for when I’m going to make a commitment.”

Drake, who was one of the first programs to reach out and offer following his decision to go JUCO, will be expecting him on campus tomorrow for a visit (Oct 24th).

It’ll be his first visit since joining Polk State College.
