Josh Jackson: Jackson ordered to anger management course

Josh Jackson: Jackson ordered to anger management course

Jackson's return is wonderful news for the Terrapins who, despite a great roster, were expected to take a slight step back in the Big Ten next season. A report on Tuesday by fanragsports.com said Jackson is likely to return to Maryland next season.

Kansas Athletics declined to comment on Monday about Jackson's diversion agreement. It's kind of mixed right now.

Expect big things from Jackson and the Terrapins in 2017-18. "Everyone is just trying to gather as much information as possible and try and make the best decision".

Jackson, a 6'7, 225-pound forward out of Canada, averaged 10.5 points per game and 6 rebounds per game over 27.8 minutes per game last season.

Jackson enters into the diversion agreement as he prepares for the NBA Draft.

The largest change-and thus the reason for Trump's numbers falling to an all-time low-is due to self-identified Republicans. He said no politician in history had been treated "worse or more unfairly".

He pleaded not guilty in April and his attorney said he would seek diversion for Jackson, who is expected to be a top-five pick in next month's National Basketball Association draft after a standout freshman season with the Jayhawks.

Asked what he has heard from National Basketball Association scouts and front office personnel about whether he would be drafted, and where in the two-round draft he might go, Jackson said, "Truthfully, I'm hearing a whole bunch of different things, it's kind of mixed right now". However, this season the team might do even better - despite the loss of Melo Trimble. He helped the Jayhawks to a 31-5 record and a 13th straight regular-season Big 12 title before a loss to OR in the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament. Last season, Jackson, Cowan and Huerter became the first freshman trio to start multiple games in the program's modern history.

Jackson was a five-star recruit who was the No. 1 player in the class of 2016 coming out of high school.

"Tonight, we're really going to have a big discussion, write down pros and cons and try and figure it out", Jackson said.

Worse still, many feared what it said about Jackson as a person off the court. "Because I have a fallback plan, it hasn't been that stressful".
