Justin Jackson

Jackson played 4 full years at UC, from the 2010-2011 season to the 2013-2014 Season. Although he is not one of the best players in UC history, he is certainly the most entertaining and worth mentioning in this list of great players. He deserves to be among these greats because Jackson was undoubtedly one of the best defensive players in Bearcats' history. His chase down blocks in transition and incredible defense in the paint forced teams to find other options than scoring inside. And by his senior year, Jackson had tremendously improved his previously spotty offensive game to become a dominant post player.
