Although he (Parker Jackson-Cartwright, ’14 basketball recruit) doesn’t possess prototypical size for the next level, he is the region’s best basketball player. His savvy, skill, and quickness are uncanny. It’s early, but he is the best point guard, at this stage, that we have seen since Baron Davis laced them up at Crossroads High School.

ON THE RECRUITING FRONT
At 5’9 140lbs and having just completed his Sophomore year in High school, Parker Jackson-Cartwright
may not strike some as a force on the hardwood. Hand him a ball and a team to manage, and the ’14 Point Guard turns doubters into believers. The California ’09-’10 Freshman Player of the Year and 2-time All-CIF Southern Section 1s team, Jackson-Cartwright sits firmly on the ’14 radar of several high level Division I basketball programs. The Loyola High Cubs
have registered a record of 51-12 while #3 has run the Point, and on two occasions in ’11-’12 gave Katin Reinhardt
and dynamic Mater Dei all they could handle (58-61, 63-75). Lost to graduation (from the ’11-’12 team) will be Julian Harrell
, Jacob Hazzard, and Justin Childress. The three combined for 48% of Loyola’s ’11-’12 points and were #1, #3, and #4 on the club in scoring. The ’12-’13 season should prove interesting/challenging as Jackson-Cartwright may be called to fill much of the scoring void. Will he do so while maintaining his mark as one of the West coast’s top facilitators.
