He is set to visit Minnesota (Sept. 1-4), Providence (Sept. 17-19) and Xavier (Oct. 8-10).
“Jayden projects to be an excellent lead guard at the next level,” LuHi coach John Buck said. “He can both score the ball and create open shots for teammates, he competes every time he steps on the floor, is coachable, and is a great teammate. I love how he defends as well.”
