Kansas' Jackson pleads guilty to misdemeanor for hitting car

Josh Jackson: Jackson ordered to anger management course

Josh Jackson: Jackson ordered to anger management course

The move comes as expected for the 6-foot-7 Jackson, who averaged 10.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and shot 43.8 percent from three-point range during a promising freshman campaign.

Despite recent speculation that he might forgo the remaining three seasons of his college career to turn pro, Jackson gave Turgeon the same good news that Trimble did previous year.

The intrigue surrounding Jackson's potential continued to swirl at the National Basketball Association draft combine in Chicago earlier this month, where he gave scouts a glimpse of his length and ability to knock down perimeter jumpers. This type of player is rare in the college game and that is why he is looked at as a top pick in the upcoming NBA Draft.

With Jackson's decision, the Terps return three starters from last year's team, as well as a key reserve.

The return of Jackson will likely allow Turgeon to move the almost 6-7 Huerter back to the shooting guard spot occupied by Trimble last season and use Jackson as a small forward if Fernando, a 6-10, 230-pound player from Angola who played the past two seasons at prep schools in Florida, can play major minutes at power forward.

Jackson also signed a "stipulation of facts" that said he followed Calvert out of the bar after she threw a drink at fellow Kansas player Lagerald Vick. He chose to skip his senior season and signed with an agent in April.

The affidavit, which led to a misdemeanor charge of vandalism against Jackson, says Chamberlain saw a dent in the center of the driver's door, the left rear tail light cover broken with pieces on the ground and the right front windshield cracked with several small impact marks. Where his a lot of strength lies is in how he plays with Kevin Huerter and Anthony Cowan, two other sophomores. Those three players, who account for more than 60 percent of Maryland's returning scoring and almost half of its rebound production, became the first trio to start multiple games in the program's modern history last season.

In a statement released by Maryland on Wednesday, Jackson said his experience in the combine "will be beneficial to my long-term development". "I can't wait to get back to College Park and begin workouts with my teammates this summer".
