Men’s basketball forward Adrease Jackson ’21 will transfer from Dartmouth. Evan Daniels, Director of Basketball Recruiting at 247Sports and a college basketball insider for Fox Sports 1, broke the news on Twitter on Wednesday.

“Source: Sophomore forward Adrease Jackson from Dartmouth is transferring. Averaged 8.3 PPG & 5 RPG last season,” Daniels tweeted.

Jackson was a valuable contributor last season off the bench and took over a starting role this season alongside a young Big Green core. The Southern California native did not start the first game, but got the starting call in the next 17 matchups, including the first two league games against Harvard University.

Jackson posted double digit point totals in his first four games and five times in his first six, but his early success did not last, as he only reached double digits three times after that. His minutes dwindled drastically as well, surpassing 20 minutes only once after netting a career-high nine field goals in a win against Sacred Heart University on Dec. 10. He had played more than 20 minutes in nine of 11 games before then.

The forward went scoreless in his final start at Harvard before transitioning to a reserve role for the rest of Ivy League play. Jackson sat three of the last five games and played only two minutes in his final appearance. 

In an email statement, Dartmouth head coach David McLaughlin said the following about Jackson: “We thank Adrease for his time as a part of Dartmouth men’s basketball and wish him nothing but the best of luck with his future endeavors.”

Jackson could not be reached for comment at press time.
