Four-star shooting guard Zeb Jackson comes from Maumee, Ohio. Despite an offer from his home state Buckeyes, he'll be heading up to Michigan basketball to play at the next level.

247Sports ranks the 2020 guard as No. 66 in the country. He's the No. 18 shooting guard, and the second-ranked player in Ohio.

This evening, Zeb Jackson announced his commitment to Michigan basketball.

From his Twitter feed:

Both the Wolverines and Buckeyes were members of his final seven schools list, along with Arizona State, Butler, Marquette, Michigan State, Purdue.

He is the first 2020 recruit to commit to John Beilein and Michigan. With his pledge, the recruiting class enters the rankings at No. 5 overall, and No. 2 in the Big Ten.

Michigan's 2019 class, which features a pair of four-star wings in Jalen Wilson and Cole Bajema, ranks No. 22 overall. The 2018 class is 12th in the country.
