North Iowa forward Jackson makes NCAA commitment
March 8, 2016
The North Iowa Bulls of the NA3HL are proud to announce that Waterloo, Iowa native and Bulls forward Austin Jackson has made an NCAA commitment to the University of Wisconsin-Stout.
Jackson, 20, joins former Bulls Joe Kleven, Dylan Zins, and Sam Naegele as part of the Blue Devils program.
Jackson (6’1/190) has been a part of the North Iowa Bulls for parts of three seasons and is a big part of the team’s success this season. He started the 2015-16 season in the NAHL with the Minnesota Magicians but felt a return to North Iowa was in his best interest of playing time and having an impact role for the Bulls.
Austin has not disappointed, he is second in goals scored for the Bulls so far with 26 and his career stats are impressive recording 40 goals and 47 assists in 89 regular season games combined in the NAHL and NA3HL.
A member of the 2016 NA3HL Central Division Top Prospects team, Austin registered 2 goals and 2 assists in that event and was +3 in the 3 games.
In his NA3HL career, Jackson has recorded 110 points in 91 career regular season games.
"We are proud to be a part of Austin's development as a junior hockey player and feel the reward of his commitment probably as much as he does,” said Bulls head coach Todd Sanden. “UW-Stout is a program that is trending upward and with the help of many NA3HL alums currently playing there we feel it is a great fit for Austin."
