Duke Signee Frank Jackson Joined Impressive Company At McDonald's All-American Game

Five-star point guard and Duke signee Frank Jackson put on quite a show at the McDonald's All-American Game this week. The 6-foot-1, 180-pound American Fork (Ut.) product became the fifth player ever to win the event's dunk contest and MVP honors in the All-American game. 

He also joined Bobby Hurley (1989), J.J. Redick (2002), Josh McRoberts (2005) and Jahlil Okafor (2014) as future Duke players to earn MVP accolades.

Jackson, who scored 19 points, could emerge as the Blue Devils' starting point guard next season if he's able to outpace Derryck Thornton,, who made 20 starts this season as a freshman but struggled with his shot and decision-making at times.
