Uh-oh, could it be that Memphis is in the running for a point guard? Yes, indeed.
Bolton High School has a rising star on their basketball team and he goes by the name of Jaylen Fisher. Fisher is a 6-1, 165-pound point guard who has been storming through the AAU circuit so far this summer. On Tuesday, he picked up his first three offers. Tennessee, Baylor, and of course, the University of Memphis have all expressed interest.
“Coaches really got to see him for the first time with a lot of confidence,” said Team Thad coach Norton Hurd.” In April, the spring evaluation period, he was nervous. He never started until last week, and he took it to another level.”
Fisher is currently ranked 19th in the country by the scouting service Future 150. Hurd, Fisher’s AAU coach, mentioned that he was very pleased with his high motor and ball-handling ability.
“He gets in the paint and makes good decisions,” said Hurd.
Many college coaches thought Fisher was already a senior due to his size. Once they realized that he hadn’t played a full summer of AAU basketball, the acceptance letters started rolling in.
As of right now, college coaches aren’t allowed to talk to Fisher until next year. Hurd has mentioned schools like Florida, N.C. State, and Kansas looking to land the stunning guard.
UPDATE ON THE LAWSONS
The Lawson brothers from Hamilton High School had a great performance at the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League Peach Jam. The both of them are starting to receive letters from colleges all over the country.
Schools such as Kentucky, Kansas, Ole Miss, Syracuse, Virginia, and Michigan State are all interested in both Keelon Jr. and Dedric, according to their father, Keelon Sr. K.J. is a rising junior and Dedric is a soon-to-be sophomore.
As of right now, Memphis is still the favorite to land both brothers.
Dedric finished ninth in the tournament in scoring with 18.4 points a game. Standing at 6-8, he also averaged seven rebounds a game and was a big part in helping Team Penny reach the final four.
