Frank Jackson’s visit back East appears to have gotten a little sweeter.

The Lone Peak guard, who will be a senior next season, was reportedly offered a scholarship by Duke on Monday morning during an unofficial visit to the school, according to Utah Prospects.

Jackson, a one-time BYU commit who de-committed to the Cougars last November, also has offers from BYU, Utah, Arizona, Maryland, Stanford and UCLA. He was in Virginia at the NBPA Top 100 camp last week and turned some heads with his performance.

"While his mentality at camp was to score, Jackson has all the tools of an elite point guard. He has a strong handle, good vision and is capable of facilitating and making plays for others," Scout.com's Evan Daniels wrote in recapping the NBPA camp.


Scout ranks the 6-foot-3, 185-pound Jackson as the No. 11 overall prospect in the 2016 recruiting class and the third-best point guard prospect in the country.

Recently, the topic of when or if Jackson will serve an LDS mission has been discussed. ESPN's Jeff Borzello reported that Jackson is exploring the possibility of playing college basketball in 2016-17.

“We’ll see when that gets to the point in time,” Jackson told Borzello. “I want to [take a mission], but at the same time, as I get to that point in my life, I’ll make my decision then.

“I’ve talked to the schools, and [they]’ve said they’ll take me in 2016. It’s up there right now. The thought of staying and playing in 2016 is up there.”

Borzello said that in addition to his trip to Duke, Jackson will also visit Maryland this week, then he will visit Stanford on July 1-2.

Safety de-commits from BYU: Hirkley Latu, a three-star safety from Kahuku, Hawaii, has de-committed from BYU, according to Scout national director of recruiting Brandon Huffman.

Latu is the No. 85 safety prospect in the 2016 class, according to Scout, and also has offers from Utah, Utah State, California, Hawaii, Oregon State and Washington State.

Latu posted a picture on Twitter of his visit to Utah State last weekend.

During a regional camp last week, Latu told Huffman that "Oregon State and Cal are schools I'm still looking at" while also mentioning at the time his commitment to BYU.
