Confirming what has been expected and reported for weeks now,

Five Star College Basketball Recruitment GG Jackson has reversed his commitment to the University of South Carolina.

1 overall recruit in the 2023 class originally committed to playing for the North Carolina Tar Heels,

But earlier this month announced its decision to withdraw from the program.

Jackson, a Columbia, South Carolina native,

Will reclassify and include his hometown Gamecock program as a member of the 2022 class

The college basketball world took to Twitter to react to this major recruitment news.

"GG Jackson, arguably the best player in the country, is ready to play for this guy in South Carolina.

Huge pickup for new coach Lamont Paris - who looks very excited after hearing the news at the gym here at Peach Jam."

As College Hoops insider Jeff Goodman told.

One fan wrote, "Looks like it will end like Ben Simmons at LSU or Anthony Edwards at Georgia season."

"I'm begging for UNC to face the SC so Leakey can work his ass off," said another.

"GG ​​Jackson is officially a gamecock!!!!!" another pair.

Jackson is the highest ranked recruit in South Carolina basketball history.

There will no doubt be a talented power forward with Gamecocks this coming season -

A luxury he doesn't get when he moved to Chapel Hill a year ago.

With the huge amount to be created under NIL contracts,

It's no surprise that Jackson decided to expedite his college basketball process.
