2021 Spotlight: Jaylen Jackson


With the travel season on hold and no opportunity for prospects entering their final year of high school to play in front of college coaches to earn scholarships, LakePoint Hoops wants to put the spotlight on the Class of 2021. Each day over the next few weeks we will be profiling a top prospect in Georgia in hopes of helping prospects generate buzz with college coaches.


Up next in the LakePoint Hoops Class of 2021 Spotlight Series…


Jaylen Jackson


Position: Small Forward

Height: 6’5"

High School: Greenforest Christian

Travel Team: Team Forrest

Scholarship Offers: North Carolina A&T, Old Dominion

Scouting Report: Jackson came up playing inside as a post player, but he’s moved out to the perimeter over the past couple years and has steadily improved his skill level. He’s a strong, athletic 6-foot-5 wing now that sees the floor well and can finish at the rim. He had spurts this year where the three-point stroke was rolling, including four of them in a comeback win over Westlake. His recruitment has picked up immensely over the last month or so, and we expect him to be one of Georgia’s trending 2021 prospects when play resumes in the coming months.
