The Texas Tech Red Raiders lost an incoming player to the transfer portal in four-star Charlotte transfer center, Dishon Jackson, who announced his decision to decommit from Tech and return to Charlotte.
Jackson stands 6-foot-10 and despite having some injury issues including last year where he missed the full 2022-23 season, Jackson was graded as a four-star player coming out of high school, and while he would have been a great get for first-year head coach Grant McCasland, the Red Raiders have a new roster spot open.
Coming out of high school, Jackson was listed as a four-star prospect by the 247Sports index and was evaluated as one of the nation’s top recruits. He also checks in as the 27th-ranked player at the center position in the class of 2020, as well as the 19th-overall prospect in the state of California.
Despite missing the previous season at Charlotte with an injury, Jackson averaged 6.6 points and 4.2 rebounds per game on 51.7% shooting from the field in two years at Washington State.
He now heads back to Charlotte after committing to Texas Tech leaving new head coach Grant McCasland with an open spot to fill at the center position. Luckily for Tech fans, McCasland landed two forwards earlier this offseason with size and ability to help step in for the loss with four-star SF Darrion Williams and three-star PF Warren Washington.
