Ian Jackson, the No. 2-ranked men's basketball prospect in the 2024 class, announced his commitment to North Carolina on Monday, a huge recruiting win for coach Hubert Davis and the Tar Heels.

Jackson chose Carolina over Kentucky, with Arkansas, LSU and Oregon also on his final list of five schools.

"Just the family atmosphere," Jackson said during an announcement on ESPNU. "It was way different than any other visit I've been on. Me and Davis had a real connection."

While he's long been a candidate to reclassify into the 2023 class, Jackson said he's sticking in the 2024 class for now.
