Two weeks ago, Lone Peak (Highland, Utah) guard Frank Jackson was named Most Likely to Decide Early by his peers in the 2015 Players Choice Awards/Superlatives. On Tuesday afternoon he made good on that appointment picking Duke over Stanford, Utah and BYU, just a week into his senior year.

Jackson, who is ranked No. 14 overall in the ESPN 100, originally committed to BYU early on his recruitment, but reopened things during his junior year. A practicing Mormon, Jackson is not expected to go on a mission and plans to enroll next fall.

It’s Duke Basketball,” Jackson told Scout.com. “The history behind the school is amazing. They’ve had so much success. They’ve been a powerhouse for so many years now.”

This summer, Jackson dominated the adidas Gauntlet averaging 24 points, four rebounds and 2.7 assists a game for the Utah Prospects and pumped in 27 points a game last season at Lone Peak.

He took home MVP honors at the Under Armour Elite 24 on Aug. 22.

Jackson joins Chaminade College Prep (St. Louis) forward Jayson Tatum, who is ranked No. 2 overall in the ESPN 100, to form Duke’s 2016 class thus far.

Here’s what the Blue Devils are getting in Jackson.
