MACON, GA -- Windsor Academy Guard Marquise Jackson had a solid 2017.

The senior helped the Knights claim their second GISA State Championship in three years this past season. Wednesday afternoon, Jackson hit a milestone on his hoops journey, signing his national letter of intent.

"This ranks at the top," Jackson said. "This is the best day."

The two-time state champ signed with South Georgia State College in Douglas in front of friends and family at Windsor Academy. After making it official, Jackson can't wait to start with his new team.

"A lot is going through my head," Jackson said. "I'm just ready to play ball again. I'm ready to get on the court with some new brothers and start something new."

The recruiting process was lengthy for Jackson but ultimately Hawks' Head Coach Cory Baldwin sold the Windsor guard.

"He's an amazing guy and I can tell he takes care of his guys," Jackson said. "It was a long process. This took me forever to find the right school and South Georgia I just fell in love with them."

Jackson plans on majoring in Mechanical Engineering and hopes to bring a national championship to SGSC in year one.
