SPARTANBURG, S.C. – Former Wofford forward Cameron Jackson will begin his professional basketball career in Germany, signing as an undrafted free agent with the Mitteldeutscher Basketball Club.
Standing at 6-8, Jackson averaged 14.5 points to go with a team-high 7.6 rebounds per game as a senior to help lift the Terriers to their first Associated Press Top 25 ranking in program history. In addition to grabbing the 2018-19 regular-season and Southern Conference tournament championships, Jackson powered Wofford to its first win in NCAA tournament history, scoring 14 points and collecting 10 rebounds in the 84-68 victory over Seton Hall.
A native of Winchester, Virginia, Jackson started all 35 games for Wofford, scoring double figures 32 times with seven double-doubles en route to being named first-team All-SoCon after the Terriers went 18-0 in SoCon play, adding three victories in the SoCon tournament to claim the league's highest seed (No. 7) since 1979. The 2018-19 season also marked the first time since 2014-15, when Jackson was a freshman, that Wofford won both the regular-season and conference tournament championships in the same year.
For his career, Jackson ranks first at Wofford with 138 games played, third with 125 blocks, sixth with a field-goal percentage of .583, sixth with 168 steals and 19th on the all-time scoring list, totaling 1,399 points in a Terrier uniform.
Mitteldeutscher BC competes in the Basketball Bundesliga, which is Germany’s first-tier league featuring teams such as Bayern Munich.
