Video Interview: Patrick Jackson
Posted Jul 10, 2008

appears to have gotten a steal.

and Sylvan Landesberg. He has the same attributes and a better upside". That’s extremely high praise, but the raw talent Jackson possesses becomes immediately obvious to anyone watching him for just a short time.
