London Lions have announced the acquisition of 6’9” Centre, Jordan Jackson ahead of the new season.
Jackson has gained all his basketball experience in the USA, most recently graduating from McMurry University but has had spells at Florida A&M before being tracked by the Lions.
Born in Leeds, Jackson will enter his first season as a pro after averaging just shy of 9 points and 5 boards.
“I am glad to be a part of this great programme with focused players and great staff,” said Jackson.
“I can feel nothing but success for our season. I just want to thank the Lions for bringing me on board and I’m ready to get the train rolling.”
Coach Vince Macaulay added, “Jordan has a strong presence and I think he has a learning curve ahead of him but he has shown huge athleticism and a willingness to learn, he will certainly help us in the paint and on the glass.”
Next action for Jackson and his team mates will be tonight when they face Bakken Bears, Danish Champions, at University of East London.
