247Sports national analyst Jerry Meyer logged a Crystal Ball prediction in favor of Alabama on the page of UK target Isaiah Jackson on Tuesday, the latest sign that the highly touted forward could be heading somewhere other than Lexington.

A little more than a month ago, national recruiting expert Andrew Slater logged a Crystal Ball pick in favor of Alabama for Jackson, who visited UK earlier this fall, and — for a few weeks — looked like he was favoring the Wildcats.

Jackson — a 6-foot-9 prospect from Detroit — is still deciding among Alabama, Kentucky and Syracuse, and he’s expected to reveal a college choice in time to sign with a school next month. The early signing period is Nov. 13-20.

UK and Syracuse have already hosted Jackson for official visits. He takes his official visit to Alabama this weekend.

Jackson is the No. 25 overall player in the 2020 class, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
