The long, sometimes rocky, road to Division I basketball has taken former Ardmore star Nino Jackson to Loyola Marymount University.
The 6-foot-2 guard signed with the school on Tuesday, he announced on Twitter.
Jackson, who played his freshman season at Northwest Classen, spent two years at Ardmore, where he developed into one of the most highly recruited players in the country, with offers from Kansas, Baylor, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and a slew of others.
But off-court issues led him to Kingdom Prep outside Atlanta, Ga., where he spent the 2012-13 season, helping them to the NACA Division III national championship.
PRICE, NAULT RECOGNIZED AFTER COMBINE
Putnam City North tight end Logan Price and Kingfisher running back Landon Nault were two of the standout performers at the National Underclassmen Combine's Southwest Five-Star event in Duncanville, Texas.
Price (6-foot-2, 201 pounds) was named one of the outstanding performers at tight end/wide receiver, earning sophomore Most Valuable Player honors at tight end.
Nault, who will be a senior next season, earned running back MVP honors. The 5-foot-8, 180-pound Nault stood tall against bigger linebackers.
Oklahoma Christian School quarterback Will McKinnis was also named one of the top performers in the camp.
CHARGERS COMPLETE PERFECT REGULAR SEASON
Heritage Hall's boys' soccer team capped an unbeaten regular season for only the second time in school history on Tuesday night with a 4-1 victory over defending state champion Northwest Classen.
The Chargers only other unbeaten regular season was in 2005 when they lost in the state championship game to Bishop Kelley.
