Frank Jackson, a 6-foot-1 guard who will play basketball for Lone Peak High this upcoming season, apparently doesn't like to wait around.
Jackson, who is only a sophomore, received a scholarship offer from BYU basketball coaches during a recent unofficial visit to BYU.
A day or two later, he took it.
Certainly, Jackson is the earliest commit in the Dave Rose era at BYU. Because he plans on going on a two-year LDS Church mission when he graduates from high school, Jackson likely won't suit up for BYU until the 2018-19 season.
Jackson played his freshman season at Lehi High School, averaging 10 points a game for the Pioneers. His family moved into the Lone Peak boundaries last spring.
Jackson scored 30 points against Lone Peak last February in a 90-71 loss to the Knights, ironically. He also had big games against Pleasant Grove, scoring 27 and 21 points in two outings against the Vikings.
"There's no question he's a highly regarded player," Lone Peak coach Quincy Lewis told The Salt Lake Tribune in June.
Jackson has attended BYU team camps for several years. He averaged 1.3 assists per game for Lehi last season.
