Justin Jackson, girlfriend Brooke Copeland get engaged
If Justin Jackson wants to have an even better month in May than the one he had in April, the North Carolina basketball star is really going to have to get creative.
Jackson, who recently declared for the NBA Draft, helped lead the Tar Heels to a national championship less than two weeks ago. He might tell you that is the second-best thing that has happened to him this month, as Jackson and his girlfriend Brooke Copeland got engaged over the weekend.
Jackson averaged 18.3 points per game — 19.5 in the NCAA Tournament — this past season. He’s expected to go somewhere near the top 10 in the draft. Copeland is no stranger to success on the basketball court, either, as she just finished her junior season with the Florida Gators.
While Jackson didn’t find a way to incorporate his proposal into the game the way some college athletes have done before him, Copeland seems pretty ecstatic anyway. Congrats to the happy couple.
