Jackson was one of the top players in the country coming out of high school three years ago largely for his baseball acumen and his incredibly slick glove. He has great range, soft hands and a strong arm at the position and could start at the big-league level right now and have a lengthy career doing so for his defense alone. His bat has been slower to develop. He has somewhat of a slight frame that he has worked hard to add strength, but he likely will never be a huge threat at the plate. Scouts have been impressed by the adjustments he made from his freshman year to his sophomore year, while spending the summers in between on the Cape and with Team USA. He is a switch hitter with a contact approach and does have a knack for situational hitting and bunting. He profiles in a similar fashion to Adam Everett, with many hoping he can have a greater offensive impact.
