Class of 2017 wing Jaylen Sebree is ready for a big summer with the Louisville Magic. A solid high school season has the high potential wing in the mix for numerous scholarships, and he continues to work hard on his game.
For Sebree it has always been about focus and consistency. The talent has been evident, and now after a strong high school year he feels he is putting it together.
“We went 28-3, we lost two games to teams from Illinois, and then in the state tournament so it was a good year,” said Sebree about the year.
He continued, “I have been working hard on my ball handling and shooting every day. I make sure to get a lot of shots up every day, I know I have to continue to get better.”
When it comes to his recruitment he already has several offers with a lot of schools set to watch him during the month of April.
“I have offers from VCU, Manhattan, Indiana, Xavier, Western Kentucky, Northern Kentucky, and Samford,” noted Sebree. “I am also hearing from Oklahoma, Arizona State, and Butler.”
According to Sebree he hopes to make a visit to VCU soon, and says the Rams program is one that intrigues him.
“I haven’t seen the campus yet, so I don’t know a ton, but it is a school I want to see and I like what the coaches are saying,” said Sebree.
Two schools he is more familiar with are Indiana and Xavier.
About the Musketeers, Sebree said, “I like that they have small class sizes and the style of play they use. Also I really like their coaching staff.”
When it comes to the Hoosiers, Sebree responded, “They are just telling me to keep working hard and stuff like that and that they really like me and want to get me to campus.”
For now Sebree is content to play things out in the spring and wants to gain information about all of the schools recruiting him before making a decision.
