This afternoon, Jaeden Zackery announced his commitment to Boston College.
Zackery will transfer to BC from Chipola College, where he has played 1 season of junior college ball. The 6’2 guard is a native of Salem, WI and spent a post-grad year playing at Scotland Prep in Chambersburg, PA before joining Chipola this season.
He was the only player on Chipola’s roster to start every game this season, and was integral in leading his team to a Florida College System Activities Association State Tournament championship this year. His team made it to the final four of the NJCAA Tournament, where they lost to Coffeyville Community College by just 3 points.
Zackery averaged 12.5 points a game and 3.8 rebounds a game this season. He scored 20+ points in 4 games, including twice in his last 4 games.
Straight out of high school, Zackery was recruited by Central Connecticut State, Coppin State and Wagner. This year, he received offers from schools including Maine, North Texas, Sam Houston State, Wagner and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
Zackery will join an Eagles roster that is very much in rebuilding mode as new coach Earl Grant looks to replace transfers and create his own program.
