Baltimore native and Overtime Elite product Tyler Jackson is set to take an official visit to Syracuse on Jan. 27, he tells On3’s Joe Tipton.

Jackson, the No. 25 overall prospect and No. 3 combo guard in the 2025 cycle — per the On3 Industry Ranking, was AAU teammates with Long Island (N.Y.) Lutheran four-star shooting guard Kiyan Anthony— the son of former Syracuse and NBA legend Carmelo Anthony — last summer.

The trip to Syracuse will be Jackson’s first official visit. He took his first unofficial visit to Auburn on Dec. 17. Jackson already holds offers from Villanova, Alabama, Houston, Kansas, Maryland, Indiana, Syracuse, and others.

The Orange signed a pair of prospects in the 2024 cycle: Washington (D.C.) native and Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy four-star power forward Donnie Freeman, as well as Bronx (N.Y.) Our Savior Lutheran four-star shooting guard Elijah Moore. Now, Adrian Autry and Co. are after some of the best athletes in the 2025 cycle.

Jackson Scouting Report

“Tyler Jackson is an aggressive, quick-twitch guard. At a slender 6-foot-1, he is comfortable playing on the ball and looks to get to his shot. Jackson has a comfortable release of the bounce. His mechanics can break down at time because of the difficulty of some of his attempts, but he’s confident. He can get downhill quick a quick first-step and burst. Jackson will need to continue adding strength as he can currently get swallowed up at times in the paint. He does also have some burst to finish over top if a player is late rotating. There is upside on defense with the length and quick feet. He has a competitive and confident mentality, which helps lead to production. The court vision is coming around.” – On3’s Jamie Shaw
