Top players include White Station (Memphis) senior guard Joe Jackson(5-11 160), a lightning quick point guard ranked among the top 20 guards in the nation by Rivals.com and other top recruiting services.  Jackson has given an oral commitment to stay at home and attend the University of Memphis.  Memphis head coach Josh Pastner commented about his talented recruit, ""Joe is a tough, hard-nosed player who is an absolute winner. He calls himself Joe `Hard-Working' Jackson, and it's the truth. He's rolls up his sleeves and puts the work hat and work boots on and goes to work every day and night. Joe is one of the quickest guards in the country. He possesses great speed and great quickness. Every time he plays, he leaves every ounce of energy on the floor. I like to use the phrase "make multiple plays per possession" to describe some players, and Joe is one of those. He's as tough of a competitor as they come at this level."
