UNC Basketball: Ian Jackson transferring to Our Saviour Lutheran

The UNC basketball commit will transfer for his senior season of high school, as he’ll attend Our Saviour Lutheran in New York.

Over the last few weeks, there were rumors that a few key members of the Cardinal Hayes High School basketball team were on the verge of transferring elsewhere.

On Thursday, one of the team’s biggest stars, a UNC basketball commit, announced where he’ll spend his senior year of high school.

Ian Jackson will be taking his talents to Our Savior Lutheran. His new school, which is in his home state, is part of the Overtime Elite High School league.

Before UNC basketball fans begin to panic, it’s important to know that this move doesn’t have any impact on Jackson’s commitment to North Carolina. He can attend Our Savior Lutheran and play in the Overtime Elite league but still can graduate and make his way to Chapel Hill next summer.

One of the top-rated guards in the Class of 2024, Jackson is likely looking to take on stronger competition during his final high school season as he prepares for the collegiate level. This is a major blow for Cardinal Hayes but an even bigger addition for Our Savior Lutheran, as they’ll add a dynamic guard that possesses above-average play-making and scoring abilities.

His decision to transfer may be concerning for some UNC basketball fans, but until stated otherwise, Jackson is still committed to North Carolina and seems to have every intention of honoring his commitment once his high school career comes to a close.
