D’Angelo Jackson to join EIU men’s basketball team. Jackson, a 6’4 and 210-pound guard, was named a 2nd Team NJCAA All-American last week. He’s coming from Highland Community College where he had impressive numbers during the last two years. D’Angelo led his team to the NJCAA national tournament in Hutchison, Kansas, under coach Tone Boyle.
EIU coaching staff is already excited about this Jackson joining the program. “D’Angelo’s ability to get past people and draw fouls is something that we’ve needed badly. His addition will make everyone happy, because he does so much for his teammates. He can really create.” Coach Jay Spoonhour said.
