Duquesne signs third Jackson to roster

| Tuesday, May 8, 2007 12:00 a.m

The Duquesne University basketball team will have a third Jackson on its roster next season.

Coach Ron Everhart announced Monday the signing of junior college transfer Ricky Jackson, a 6-foot-6, 215-pound forward from Canton, Ohio.

Jackson will join holdovers Aaron and Reggie Jackson on the Dukes’ roster.

Ricky Jackson will have three seasons of eligibility after playing one season at Cloud County (Kan.) Community College. Last year, Jackson led Cloud County in scoring (15.3 ppg), rebounding (6.1 rpg) and blocked shots (18). Also playing on that team was Pitt recruit Cassin Diggs.

Everhart also announced that Jovon Moses, a November signee, has been released from his national letter of intent. As it stands, Duquesne’s incoming recruiting class will include Jackson, forward David Theis and guard Bill Clark.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
