AAU Coach Evaluation:
As the AAU coach for Jalen Jordan, he has really amazed me with his skills. He has a wide range of talent, with him being able to shoot the long ball creates the drive that makes him hard to guard. He is not a stand around player, he moves well without the ball which I think allows him to be very dangerous as he makes his cuts to the basket to score. A great rebounder that can also push the ball and play the point guard role. All and all a great kid that has a high upside and pronounced IQ for the game of basketball and will be talked about a great deal as the next few years go by. – Coach Mike Williams, 7 Cities AAU

Coach Frank says:
Smooth shooting Jalen Jordan has blown up over the summer and quickly established himself as one of the top perimeter scoring threats in the 757. A long 6’3 with an impressive wingspan Jalen has excellent shooting mechanics and is a consistent shooter to three point range. The son of former Lake Taylor HS star Grady Jordan whose high flying, slashing style earned him a junior college opportunity, Jalen has developed that same slashing style as he can get to the basket but has a jumper not many, not even his Dad could match. On an uptempo team full of slashers at Lake Taylor HS, Jalen is that perimeter threat that will keep defenses honest. He has disciplined and consistent mechanics, a quick release and excellent footwork. To compliment is sharpshooting capability Jalen can use his dribble to get separation or to attack the basket where his long wingspan and shot making ability even in traffic makes him equally effective on the drive. In a recent game at the Virginia Wesleyan team camp Jalen wowed the crowd with a scorching two and a half minute stretch where he scored 18 points! He can fill it up that quickly! Jalen provides the pressing, trapping Titans with solid defense on the perimeter and in the post. As his first full varsity season progresses and onlookers get more familiar with him, look for Jalen to be mentioned among the top shooters and more gifted players in the 757.
