    INDIANAPOLIS — Four-star forward London Jemison of Expressions Elite didn’t disappoint during Session 3 with college coaches in attendance. The 6-foot-8, 185-pound small forward from St. Thomas More High School (CT), posted averages of 9.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists through four games in Indianapolis.

    Most impressive, though, was how efficient Jemison was. The forward shot 53.3% from the field and was 6-of-15 (40%) from 3-point range. He also added a steal in each game, three blocks and six offensive rebounds throughout the weekend.

    Jemison caught up with ZAGSBLOG.com to give the latest on his recruitment and said Notre Dame, Virginia, Syracuse, Mississippi State, Georgetown, Vanderbilt, and Tennessee were recruiting him hardest as of late. Jemison also named Xavier and Providence. Here’s a quick break down of each option:

    Notre Dame: “They’ve been very consistent with me throughout my recruiting process. They offered me earlier in the fall this year. Coach [Mike] Farrelly has done a really job recruiting me, coach [Micah] Shrewsberry too. Definitely they’ve been very consistent and they love my game a lot.”

    Syracuse: “They also offered me in the fall and you know coach [Adrain] Autry reached out to me recently to keep the line of communication going.”

    Virginia: “They also offered me earlier. They be doing a good job. Coach [Orlando] Vandross. They just like my game and my versatility.”

    Mississippi State: “They actually came to my school practice. I talked to them there. They just been watching me lately, just reaching out saying that they like my game. That’s more of a new school that has been recruiting me.”

    Georgetown: “They just went to a few of my games during the school year. Coach [Brain] Blaney, he was at Providence. He’s done a lot of recruitment from that side.”

    Tennessee: “Coach Rod [Clark], he’s been reaching out to me, watching me at the EYBL sessions. So that’s also a new school that’s been recruiting me.”

    Xavier: “They’ve been recruiting me for the past year or so. Coach [Adam] Cohen, he’s been recruiting me for a while, the past two years. But they offered me earlier this fall. So they’ve been recruiting me a lot. They like my versatility and stuff.”

    Shrewsberry, Autry and Xavier head coach Sean Miller were all in to see Jemison at Session 3. Vandross was also there for Virginia, and Mississippi State, Georgetown and Tennessee all had representation via assistants. Tennessee head coach Rick Barnes was spotted on Sunday but wasn’t present the first two days of the session.

    Jemison has already been on an official visit to Syracuse and unofficial visit to Providence. The forward will take more visits this fall after Peach Jam and the EYBL season is over. That’s around where Jemison would like to make his decision as well.

    Jemison is looking for good relationships with the team and coaches when he takes his visits.

    “The development,” Jemison added to what he’s looking for in a school. “Winning is the biggest part for me for sure. That’s why I play is winning. The relationship with the coaches and my family is important, but just having everybody on the same page and feeling comfortable like a home away from home is too.”

    The coaching staffs at Notre Dame, Syracuse and Providence have been recruiting Jemison the longest and have built the closest relationships with him, he said.

    Jemison is ranked the No. 58 overall prospect in the 2025 class by 247Sports and the No. 2 player in Connecticut.

    “I think I’m a high level wing,” Jemison said. “I can do multiple things, shoot, pass, dribble, create, rebound pretty well too, run the floor. I’m just a versatile wing that can guard one-through-four. I can do whatever you need on the court, bringing whatever coach needs for sure.”
