Boston College junior guard Reggie Jackson declared for the 2011 NBA Draft on Wednesday, but he will not hire an agent, meaning he can withdraw his name and return to the Eagles for his senior season. The announcement came via the school's official Twitter account.
The move does not surprise BC Interruption -- "this will allow Jackson to 'test the NBA Draft waters' with the option of returning to school if he doesn't like his pro prospects."
Jackson will have until May 8 to decide to return to school. I'm thinking there's still a pretty good shot that Jackson returns for his senior season. But if you ask someone else, they'd probably say he's as good as gone. You never really know with these things.
Jackson, a native of Colorado Springs, Colo., was the Eagles' leading scorer this past season, averaging 18.1 points per game (along with 4.3 assists and 4.0 rebounds). He was awarded with All-ACC first-team honors, as well as USBWA All-District I honors and NABC All-District 2 accolades, and a honorable mention to the AP All-America.
