jackson is actually interesting if you read the stories on christian Dawkins the agent. Jackson was being "run" by Dawkins for awhile, at a certain point his mom, Apple Jones, got involved in the recruitment and took over, she moved him to a new AAU team founded for her to coach. Moved him to Prolific Prep. All that was done to get him away from Dawkins and others who were trying to funnel her son down a path she didn't like. At the time it came out it seemed like yet another example of a kid being given terrible parenting so the mom could steer her son overseas, it turns out his mom probably saved his college eligibility by doing that. The good news for ARizona is the more you read about Dawkins the more clear it becomes much of what he says is not true several people are comparing him to DiCaprio's character in Catch Me if You can. The guy is 25 years old, he was 20 when he started "handling" Jackson. He was telling people he was an agent and had multiple players when he was actually a runner getting players for Andy Miller. He bluffed his way up the ladder very fast then got fired, and then tried to go solo and run his own agency and that's when he hooked with with that Blazer guy right around the time the FBI started flipping him. So while it's clear Dawkins did have money and was paying coaches and trying to steer players, it actually is possible that these bidding wars over players may have been created by Dawkins as part of his attempt to build his brand. Convince both sides the other side is bidding big money and several people like Gatto with Adidas believed him and approved a bid. It sounds like the Bowen one really happened although nobody knows if his family got the money, the Little one is harder to tie down everyone involved is denying it happened beyond just Dawkins telling both sides the other side was bidding.
