We are delighted to announce that Jordan Jackson has signed with us for the remainder of the 2019/2020 season.
We have strengthened our depth in the frontcourt with the signing of 6ft 9 forward Jackson and look forward to seeing him kit up against Westminster Warriors.
Jackson, born in Leeds, moved to the US during his early years and gained a wealth of experience, graduating from McMurry University and also previously representing Florida A&M.
Jackson started the season at the London Lions and was signed due to his impressive performances at McMurry University. Jackson was second in the team in blocks and third in rebounding, proving to be a key player for the team on defence.
In addition, Jackson is skilled for his size and has a great touch around the rim, whilst also proving to be difficult to stop on the offensive boards.
Jackson will provide great athleticism, rim protection and energy at both ends of the floor for us as we look to build on our strong first half of the season.
Coach Spinks said "This is a great opportunity for Jordan to develop and grow as a player with Storm after being identified as a young man with a good skill set and an intriguing upside.
