Fisher remains a top priority

Point guards are hard to find and one of the best in the 2016 class is Memphis native Jaylen Fisher

Four-star point guard Jaylen Fisher is one of the most talented floor generals in the class of 2016. The Memphis native who runs with Team Thad during the AAU season is someone who has been on the radar for a while, and continues to add college interest.

According to Team Thad AAU Coach Norton Hurd, Fisher had a tremendous junior season for his high school team.

“Jaylen had a good high school season,” said Hurd. “He was the region MVP and they made it to the sub state and they lost when he fouled out. I think he has really improved his jump shot. He got into the game, made a lot of shots, and just improved overall.”

Recruiting wise there are numerous schools who are really making Fisher a priority recruit.

“The top people would be Connecticut, Arkansas, and Memphis,” noted Hurd. “They have probably been the ones on him the hardest. Then it is Florida, Baylor, Tennessee, and then Louisville and Kansas as well, but those two haven’t offered yet.”

At this point Hurd says that Fisher intends to sit down with his family and coaches following the spring open period to really begin taking a close look at the schools recruiting him. As of now, he remains open in the process.

When coaches do get a chance to see Fisher during the month of April, Hurd says to expect to see someone who is really running the show well.

“Mainly I am expecting him to just run the team,” said Hurd. “In our eyes he is a top 5 point guard in the nation. He is one of the fastest point guards around, so we want him to lead us and to continue to improve.”

With his combination, of size, athleticism, and ability to run a team, there is no doubt that Fisher should remain as one of the more heavily sought after point guards in the class of 2016.
