ESPN’s No. 17 Ranked Basketball Player, Ian Jackson, Returns to Our Saviour Lutheran To Spend His Final Year of High School

Breaking news:

Jackson to compete for Our Saviour Lutheran and one of 8 teams in the Overtime Elite League before heading to the University of North Carolina in 2024

Our Saviour Lutheran (OSL) School in the Bronx announced today that Ian
Jackson, ESPN’s No. 17-ranked basketball player in the country, has reunited with esteemed
Head Coach Pete Wehye to complete his final year of high school eligibility at OSL. Jackson
announced his transfer from Cardinal Hayes High School last week and will compete for the OSL
Falcons, a National force in the elite high school basketball world. He will be playing with the
teams on world class stages including the Overtime Elite League (OTE).
Jackson, one of the most talked about high school shooting guards in the country, has
committed to UNC’s 2024 class, where he will join NY LIghtning alum and five-star point guard
Elliot Cadeau. The 6-foot-4, 185-pound guard is also already making buzz as a top pick for the
2028 NBA Draft and made headlines this summer for stunning at the Adidas 3SSB All-American

“It’s been an honor to watch Jackson, who I coached at the Middle School level, grow into an
incredible player and human,” said Coach Pete Wehye. “To have the opportunity to spend one
last year together, and build an elite high school program around him, is truly a gift that
benefits both Jackson and everyone involved, from his team, to the Bronx and Greater New
York community, Overtime, UNC TarHeels, and eventually the NBA League.”

Most recently, OSL and New York Lightning Basketball jointly introduced a first-of-its kind NIL
sports platform for the benefit of their unified alliance of more than 110 players called “Protect the Nest”.

In partnership with Obsesh, an industry leader in NIL sports marketing, and technology services, the program
aims to create economic and skills opportunities for its players starting with the 2023 season
and newly announced Falcons Combine Camp slated for October 6th.
