    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog

    Class of 2026 forward Jalan Wingfield is receiving high Power 5 interest early in his recruitment.

    The 6-foot-7, 225 pound Thomas County Central High School (GA.) and AE5 AAU product averaged 14 points, 10.6 rebounds, and 3.8 blocks in his freshman campaign.

    His production, matched with an elite frame for a freshman, has earned him interest from Florida State, Georgia, and Georgia Tech, among several others.

    He also currently holds offers from Cincinnati, Kennesaw State, Seattle, and Albany State.

    “I’m in touch with a lot of them [programs] right now,” Wingfield told ZAGSBLOG.

    When asked who’s recruiting him the hardest, he said, “UGA, Georgia Tech, South Florida, South Carolina, Albany State, Cincinnati, Xavier, and Alabama.”

    He also mentioned that Florida State, Georgia, and Cincinnati have had the most interest in him at this time, “Man they’ve all been saying I’ll fit the program well and just stuff like that,” he said.

    Wingfield is looking to visit Florida State and Cincinnati in the near future on unofficial visits, “I’m probably going to take Florida State soon, and I’m trying to take Cincinnati too.”

    In terms of skillset, Wingfield wants to show coaches this summer that he’s more than just a big man.

    “I’m not just big,” he said. “I can push the ball, I can shoot the ball, and I can dribble.”

    “I’m trying to get more athletic and get a better body frame,” Wingfield concluded.
