01/08/2021 - 2021 Baseball Factory Pre-Season Prospects Tournament (MS)
Jackson continues to shows a prospect on the diamond. At SS, he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground balls and plays through with his body. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. He moves well laterally with range improving as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows a crouched setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently.

Jackson increased arm velocity to 55 MPH and showed a spike in hitting numbers during his last workout in Arizona. He is an athletic, SS with good knowledge of the game. Defensively, Jackson has quick/active feet, a presentable glove, and he fields out in front of his body. He gets in a good ready position, makes plays consistently, and throws with an accurate arm with momentum across the diamond. At the plate, Jackson stands in squarely, he swings in good rhythm, and he has fast bat speed. He makes level/consistent contact, and has good feel for the barrel. Jackson is a solid player and will continue to improve as he gets bigger and stronger.
01/18/2019 - Baseball Factory Spring Training in Arizona (Ages 12-14)
Jackson is a coachable SS prospect who worked hard on his skills during his time at the Spring Training in Arizona. In the field, Jackson shows smooth footwork and fields in a low position with soft hands. He makes a clean exchange and gains momentum well on his throws, working to keep them accurate to his target. Increasing his lateral range can help Jackson improve defensively. At the plate, this RHH sets up in an athletic stance with his hands held low. He is on time getting into a small load and takes a short swing, making solid contact. Jackson can improve as a hitter by driving his lower half sooner. With seven more years to develop, Jackson has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
