    Antino Jackson - Akron transfer visiting

    First Post Banner
    Not sure if he is grad transfer or not. Doesn't make much sense if not.

    Looks like he was considering transferring to the Aggies a couple weeks ago...

    His hype video is mostly show. I don't see a D1 killer here. At best Harris light.

    Looks like he is a grad transfer.

    And apparently he has an "offer" from new LSU as well.

    I think unless there has been a lot of moves that it might make sense to not let a scholarship go wasting. I would want to know who else might be coming in. In Weir's system it appears that another guard could get some time.

    I have seen video of him and he looks good to me. He looks like he works hard. That is the kind of player UNM needs. I hope he transfers here.

    Do some research before you say you'd pass on this guy...started every game, averaged double figures and shot 40% from 3 for a 26-8 team last year. More than likely, he's better than any incoming freshman or JUCO we can pick up at this point. He looks like he's definitely worthy of filling a roster spot and getting good minutes for a year.

    5th year guy who only counts against us for 1 year while Weir rebuilds what he's lost? Absolutely and this is he blueprint to building this thing. Get a bunch of guys who only count for 1, 2 years max while you build it with freshman. Yes please.

    Exactly. I would rather grab 1 year guys late, than freshman that we otherwise wouldn't go after. Plus, even if Harris stays, we need ball handlers next year.

    15 vs Air Force, 12 vs Creighton, 8 vs Houston in the NIT. A guy with solid not great but solid numbers as a starting point guard from a 26-8 squad? Yup sign him up!

    Just finished his junior year. So he's going to graduate as a Junior. Played in Houston for Cypress Springs HS. I believe Jordan Hunter's team played against them.

    Have to like the "driven player with outstanding work ethic" part of his bio on the Akron page. Go Antino. Go Lobos.

    If Coach wants him and he wants to be here, I will root for him like all Lobo players. Coach Weir knows he will be judged by the results of decisions like this. This seems like a safe addition as the young man's background strongly indicates good academics (high school "all academic & college, graduating in 3 years) and because he is graduation in 3, it gives coach the option of redshirting or not.

    Same slight build but much shorter. Obviously a workout warrior who is very strong for his physique type. Also a PG type instead of just being a shooter / scorer as Lightfoot was (God rest his soul).

    He looks like a outstanding shooter and ball hawk. Would be a great addition to the LOBOs!

    You always like a kid who graduates before his normal time. I wouldn't think he'd be coming to redshirt, however (or did you mean someone else redshirt, perhaps?).

    Man, all these experts that even know a guy exists for 5 minutes and can make an evaluation to write a kid off. Comical.

    i agree, a redshirt is very unlikely for him but I'm just saying as a junior graduate, unlike most other grad transfers, his redshirt year is still available & therefore, an option - not a big + but just another consideration. I did not think of others redshirting.

    I see some similarities to the Celtic's Isaiah Thomas in those highlight vids. Deep range from outside + a lot of deceptive stops/starts and speed changes to penetrate.

    I know it's just a highlight tape, but if you can't see that this guy would help our team, you need to have your eyes checked. He's quick, got good range on the jump shot, and seems to get in the lane when he wants. And when he gets in the lane,he is able to get off the shot against taller defenders. The fact that he has played 3 years as a Division 1 player and would only count 1 year on our roster, just seems like the perfect player for the Weir's first year. I would rather have this guy for 1 year than wasting a scholarship late in the signing year on a project high-school kid or on a Junior College transfer. Hope we land him.
