Georgetown 2017 Basketball Recruiting: Jaren Jackson commits to Michigan State

The five-star guard was a bit of a longshot for the Hoyas, anyway.

Five-star 2017 forward Jaren Jackson has made his college decision. He will be a Michigan State Spartan.

Jackson, who had Georgetown in his final five, confirmed his commitment Thursday morning.

Our friends at Casual Hoya did a fantastic job breaking down why Georgetown fans shouldn’t fret about this. It happens.

Sure, Jackson’s dad played for John Thompson, Jr. But does that sort of thing really matter?

The Hoyas still have a whole host of 2017 offers out and three spots to fill, which doesn’t count Jessie Govan’s potential NBA departure following this season.

Congratulations to Jaren Jackson, Jr.
