Colorado State receives commitment from JUCO PF Kimani Jackson

It appears the Colorado State basketball team will have some more help trying to fill the void left by its outgoing three seniors.

Junior college power forward Kimani Jackson, rated as the No. 2 JUCO power forward and No. 7 overall JUCO player in the country by 247sports.com, committed to CSU Sunday on his official visit, according to Brad Winton of JucoRecruiting.com

Jackson, who held offers from Fresno State, Tennessee, James Madison and Old Dominion, will have three years of eligibility remaining after playing one season at New Mexico Junior College. He originally committed to Louisiana-Lafayette during his senior season of high school, but didn’t end up at the school. Last season, Jackson averaged 8.0 points and 5.8 rebounds per game while shooting 50.3 percent from the field for the Thunderbirds.

Along with returning forward Tiel Daniels and junior college All-American Emmanuel Omogbo, Jackson will look to provide much-needed depth and versatility in the Rams’ frontcourt after the loss of seniors J.J. Avila and Stanton Kidd.

CSU coaches were not available for comment, as college coaches are prohibited from discussing the status of a player until their National Letter of Intent is signed.

Colorado State is now one over the scholarship limit for the 2015-16 season, although is has been rumored that sophomore guard Carlton Hurst is expected to transfer, and senior guard Antwan Scott has yet to receive a sixth year of eligibility for a medical hardship.
