Michigan State fans likely already know a fair share about freshman Jaren Jackson. He was a five-star recruit and the country’s No. 8 player in the Class of 2017, according to 247Sports. He led his high school team, La Lumiere (Ind.) School, to a national title. Big Ten beat writers tabbed him as the league’s preseason Freshman of the Year, while an ESPN college basketball reporter said him and sophomore Miles Bridges could be one of the best duos in college basketball.

But what about his reason behind choosing to wear No. 2 at Michigan State? His ideal pizza? The song he’s most embarrassed about listening to?

Now the Spartans faithful can learn those answers, too, by watching the “Meet the Rookies” video introducing Jackson. Michigan State plans to introduce its other freshmen in the coming days.

By the way, here were Jackson’s responses to the questions above:

Reason behind choosing to wear No. 2 at Michigan State: his father wore that number in the NBA.

Favorite pizza: Meat lovers with some pineapple.

Song he’s embarrassed about listening to: Beyoncé’s “Me, Myself and I”.
