Georgia basketball head coach Mark Fox has landed his first commit for the class of 2015, coming from inside the state lines. '15 PG William Jackson has flipped his commitment from Connecticut and has now pledged to be a member of the Bulldogs. The 6'4, 175-pound point guard comes in rated as a four-star prospect by the 247Sports Composite and is ranked as the 19th best point guard in the country for the class of 2015. Jackson is also ranked as the ninth best prospect at any position from the state of Georgia.

Before Jackson committed to the Huskies in early February, he held offers from Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Kansas, Louisville, Missouri, Ole Miss, and was receiving interest from Clemson and South Carolina.

In Jackson, the Bulldogs are getting a point guard that has the athletic ability to finish at the rim and can create his own shot if need be. Jackson is also fairly clever when it comes to getting his teammates involved, and gives open looks with solid passing, in addition to his solid shooting ability. He will still have plenty to improve upon, but the more he plays, the more he'll improve.
