After a strong close to the summer and a successful start to his junior campaign, 2017 wing Jaylen Sebree is starting to garner more college interest.
Sebree, who transferred to Hopkinsville (Ky.) Christian County for his junior season, currently claims scholarship offers from Marshall, Western Kentucky, Northern Kentucky, Indiana, Xavier, Manhattan and Virginia Commonwealth.
“It’s going great,” Sebree said of his recruitment. “But I’m looking forward to more schools.”
In-state power Kentucky recently began communicating with Sebree and he swung by their campus for an unofficial visit this past weekend.
“That was great,” he said about his trip to Kentucky. “They just told me to keep on getting better and that they’ll be at some of my AAU events this year.”
According to Sebree, John Calipari has evaluated him in the past and the Wildcats are in the initial stages of recruiting him.
Sebree also took a recent fall visit to Xavier.
“It was great,” he said of his visit at Chris Mack’s program. “That was really good. I like that school a lot.”
“I like them,” he added. I like the school. I like how it’s small and I think it’s a good fit for me.”
Sebree said he’s also taken unofficial visits to Indiana and Western Kentucky. He also cited interest from Cincinnati, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. Despite the early interest and visits, he’s far from making a college choice.
“It’s not even close,” he said.
On the court, Sebree said he’s having his best season to date.
“I think I’m playing really, really well and [better] than my last two seasons,” he said. “I’m more aggressive this season.”
“I think I’m an all around player,” he added. “I like to get my teammates involved a lot. Shooting, I can shoot the ball pretty well. I can rebound and pass it.”
Sebree, who wants to improve his ball handling and get stronger, currently ranks No. 17 at the small forward position and No. 100 overall in the 2017 class.
