C.J. Jackson has only played two games at Ohio State, but the junior college transfer already has coach Thad Matta comparing him to former Buckeyes star and fan favorite Aaron Craft.
“He is like Aaron Craft.” Matta said Wednesday. “He looks at the team and says, ‘What do they need me to do?’ And he’ll do it. Can’t put a price tag on that.”
