North Carolina Tar Heels 2024 five-star recruit Ian Jackson has signed with Octagon for NIL representation. With him still over a year away from playing in Chapel Hill, the NIL deals will start rolling in rather quickly for the “one and done” prospect. Top recruits like the shooting guard often sign deals with companies to negotiate and handle their potential NIL deals. Now that he is committed, and to a Blue Blood program at that, deals will likely roll in much faster for the five-star shooting guard. Capitalizing on NIL deals ahead of the 2025 NFL Draft is key for top recruits.

Ian Jackson is ranked as the second-overall recruit in the 2024 recruiting class and the second-ranked shooting guard. The New York-based guard will likely be a lottery pick when he declares for the 2025 NBA Draft. He joins a loaded recruiting class for Head Coach Hubert Davis and the North Carolina Tar Heels. Now that he has NIL representation with Octagon there will likely be more announcements from him with the signing of new deals to further his brand. These types of deals help college athletes make money and further their brand ahead of when they enter the NBA. While his time a Chapel Hill is still over a year away, the deals will roll in fairly quickly for the top recruit.
