Drafted in the supplemental 1st round (32nd overall) by the Toronto Blue Jays in 2004 (signed for $1,017,500)
In his first start for the Aggies after transferring from Louisville, Jackson spun a seven-inning no-hitter against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. He was even better later, taking a perfect game into the ninth inning at Nebraska and striking out 13 in a shutout of Kansas State, but slumped in his final two outings before regional play. Teams that covet performance won't be able to ignore his numbers from the Cape Cod League last summer (6-0, 1.88) or with Texas A&M this spring (10-5, 3.55, 110-24 strikeout-walk ratio in 104 innings. Jackson commands three solid pitches: an 88-93 mph fastball that holds its velocity for nine innings, a slider that's a big improvement over his old curveball and a circle changeup. He's durable and athletic at 6-foot-5 and 230 pounds, and the fact that he's lefthanded enhances the total package even more. Jackson's recent efforts have pushed him from the supplemental first-round to the middle of the first round.
