— Ian Jackson
BRONX, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 11, 2023/ -- Our Saviour Lutheran (OSL) School announced today that Ian Jackson, ESPN’s No. 17-ranked basketball player in the country, has reunited with esteemed Head Coach Pete Wehye to complete his final year of high school eligibility at OSL. Jackson, who transfered from Cardinal Hayes High School, will compete for the OSL Falcons, a National force in the elite high school basketball world. He will be playing with the team on world class stages, including the Overtime Elite League (OTE).

Jackson, one of the most talked about high school shooting guards in the country, has committed to UNC’s 2024 class, where he will join NY LIghtning alum and five-star point guard Elliot Cadeau. The 6-foot-4, 185-pound guard is also already making buzz as a top pick for the 2028 NBA Draft and made headlines this summer for stunning at the Adidas 3SSB All-American Camp.

“It’s been an honor to watch Jackson, who I coached at the Middle School level, grow into an incredible player and human,” said Coach Pete Wehye. “To have the opportunity to spend one last year together, and build an elite high school program around him, is truly a gift that benefits both Jackson and everyone involved, from his team, to the Bronx and Greater New York community, OTE, UNC Tarheels, and eventually the NBA League.”

“I’m super excited about this year and looking forward to winning as many games as possible! That’s my number one priority and goal. I’m also looking to become a McDonald’s All American - it’s been a dream of mine since I was young. I know I can do it here,” said Ian Jackson.
