Jackson is a true five-tool prospect who currently shines defensively. He's the type of shortstop that makes every play look incredibly easy, as he uses his plus-range to glide to balls hit to both sides of him. Soft hands and a strong throwing arm allows him to throw out the fastest of baserunners. While his bat isn't as advanced as his defense is, he shows good, natural hitting action and always seems to make hard, consistent contact, centering the ball well on his bat. That foundation leads many to believe that he could be a perennial All-Star, and one of the better all-around shortstops in baseball. He already shows an advanced knowledge of the strike zone, and has fared well against some of the top arms in the nation. He is expected to be advised by Scott Boras, so that could play into his signability next spring, but he's the best all-around shortstop to emerge from high school since B.J. Upton in 2002. He plays at the same high school as Cameron Maybin, the 10th overall pick in 2005.
