Former George Mason basketball player Isaiah Jackson transferring to PC

The 6-6 wing from Gainsville, FL will have to sit out this upcoming season before he can get any run with the team but will have three full seasons of eligibility after that.  During his Freshman year at George Mason, the swingman averaged 8.7 points and 3.9 rebounds per game and ended up starting the majority of the season.  I’ll be the first to admit that I didn’t catch many George Mason games last year but I’m having a hard time making sense of his shooting numbers.  He shot a respectable 35.6% from three and 70.6% from the line but shot an abysmal 34.8% from the field.  That can’t be right can it?  He shot better from three than he did overall from the floor?  I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen that before.

From reading up on Jackson, it feels like he might have had some growing pains during the start of his Freshman season before figuring things out near the end.  He scored in double-figures in 10 of his last 11 games, including two 18-point performances against St. Louis and Fordham.  All and all, it looks like another quality pick-up for Ed Cooley’s staff.
