Analysts are predicting 4-star SF Justin Jackson will commit to Maryland basketball

The UNLV commit would be a huge get for Maryland's 2016 class.

Four-star Canadian small forward Justin Jackson committed to UNLV back in September 2014, but with UNLV's recent coaching change, Maryland looks to be a major candidate for his services if he decommits from the Rebels.

Jackson visited Maryland on April 30, and in the past two days, four analysts predicted on 247Sports Crystal Ball that the small forward will commit to the Terps. As of Tuesday morning, the only other predictions on the site are one writer predicting he'll go to Arizona and one saying he'll pick Oregon.

Jackson is the No. 6 small forward in the class of 2016, the No. 3 player in Ontario and the No. 40 recruit in the class, per the 247Sports Composite.

At .9838, he's rated almost as high as any four-star on the 247Sports Composite. With Jake Layman vacating his spot as Maryland's starting small forward, Jackson would be an enormous get for Mark Turgeon. The Terps already have three-star small forward Micah Thomas signed for the class of 2016, but Thomas should need some seasoning before he's ready to become a big-time contributor. Wherever he ends up, Jackson should be ready to go from day one.
