"I like Arizona a lot," he tells FOX Sports NEXT. "Going there this weekend just made me feel even more comfortable with the coaches and players. I feel like it would be a good place for me. I'm not going to lie, I think it really would be. Everything is going well; I would probably see myself there, but we'll see."
Despite a successful trip, Jackson-Cartwright wasn't 100% sold just yet.
"It's not that anything is stopping me," he says in regards to his decision not to make a commitment. "I just think I'm still loyal to other schools. I'm waiting for something else, but I don't know what that is. I feel like it's just too early for me; I don't feel like I'm ready to make a decision right now."
The 5-foot-8, 145-pound athlete says his loyalty lies in the Pac-12.
The recruit admits that at this point, he's down to two programs.
"Right now, that's definitely what it looks like: UCLA or Arizona," says Jackson-Cartwright. "They've been the two schools really pushing for me to come to their school, so I would say that as of right now it's those two."
At this stage, Jackson-Cartwright is torn between the two Pac-12 programs.
"They're fifteen minutes away from my house," he says of UCLA's pros. "My parents would be able to come to every game. Historically, they are a good program for players and guards like me. I love Ben Howland and what he does as a coach.
"My parents obviously love UCLA because it is so close. They love their program, but they also really like Arizona, especially my mom. My mom loves Coach Miller, which is a big thing for me. When your mom likes the coach, it's obviously a good thing. And she loves the city.
"This is why it's going to be so hard to make a decision between the two."
In the meantime, Jackson-Cartwright plans to concentrate on his upcoming season.
"Recruiting is really important right now since I'm a junior, but it's not my main focus," he states. "Right now I'm getting ready for my season, getting back in shape, and working hard and preparing.
"I told Coach Miller that I wanted to make a decision after my season. I don't know if that will change, but that's what I think I'm going to do right now."
